Project Status Change + Lead/Organizer Discussion

Okay, hi guys. So, since the vote passed with a landslide, we changed the project to "maintenance mode". To my knowledge, this basically means fixing up and cleaning the existing coding. Now, for this, we'll need a group of people who're willing to help, and already know a bit about coding. So, since I'm not sure about the voting process, I've opted to start a discussion here. I talked to 'teldy about it, and she said a small group of people could be "leads" in a sense. So... this is where everyone else comes in.

Ideas, guys?    ℓightning    00:25, 2/13/2013 

I think we ought to have a vote from a pool of volunteers for people to be put in charge of maintaining the userboxes. I cannot really think of another way to do it. Shelly For a limited time only 01:18, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

As do I. However, there should be some form of discussion. I figured the talk page for the project would be the best place to do it, since it does revolve around the project. Once those users step forward, then we can move onto the official voting, I would think.    ℓightning    01:28, 2/13/2013 

What does everything think a good number of "leads" would be? Would we have quite a few, like say 8 or 9, or have just a handful, like maybe 4 or 5? SplookMavinotp♥ 01:53, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

I'd say five is a good number to start up with. More can always be voted on if we need them. And I do like the idea of people volunteering and being voted on. Would definitely support that. Paleggy Ship it 02:00, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well, the floor is open to nominations for project coordinators. Nominees should have a second and proof that they can handle wiki code. Shelly For a limited time only 02:45, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I was thinking that we could have something along the lines of the PR lead vote. We had users listed, whom were nomiated by other users, and those who voted did so under their respective sections. We didn't have seconds, and it was tallied as a normal vote would, with each user's vote counting once and only once. I don't think seconds are needed, as a user isn't obtaining extra rights. We should vote how we did for the last project, not something entirely different.    ℓightning    02:53, 2/13/2013 

Requiring seconds would be a tad overboard in my opinion, but just a note in response to cloudy, this isn't quite the same thing we've done in other projects cloudy, so the same thing won't necessarily work just cause of that. However I do think that a normal nomination and vote will be plenty enough, though I'm open to other options. Paleggy Ship it 03:33, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well, let's at least get some nominations up. Have a period of time for nominating and then open it up to voting. And then the leader will need to get a work list sorted out. Shelly For a limited time only 18:49, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

How about a two week period for all nominations and then the following week or two we'll open a voting period for users to vote on each nomination with {{voteyay}}, {{votenay}}, or {{dontvote}}, 'kay? Atelda 02:26, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

In full agreement here. Paleggy Ship it 23:51, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I agree. But just one question. Who will be able to vote on the nominations? Anyone or those chosen? Mistypebble 00:00, February 17, 2013 (UTC)

I believe everyone would be able to vote, provided they meet the qualifications for voting...which are around here somewhere. lol. Anyways, I'm in full support as well for this.    ℓightning    00:01, 2/17/2013 

I, also, agree with everything here. owo *Duck c'mon skinny love... 00:03, February 17, 2013 (UTC)

Eh, I'm going to reduce the strictness of qualifications since it's just a project and members can come and go as they choose;

  • Must be a member of the wiki for at least a month
  • Must have contributed/be contributing to at least one (1) project

I think that'd be enough to suffice voting requirements. If they're contributing to a project, they're contributing to the wiki and have to have edits, and a month doesn't seclude many users. Atelda 00:11, February 17, 2013 (UTC)

Well since no one's said something within a week's time, let's open nominations shall we? You can still speak up if you disagree with any aspect of this. =) Atelda 02:22, February 24, 2013 (UTC)


So with the votes and nominations out of the way, what's the next step? We can figure out how we're going to update the userboxes, or organize the users, or decide on how to organize the userboxes. It's up in the air. Atelda 19:11, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Well, since we have some organizers already set up, and pending nominations already underway, I believe the next thing that should be done is finding out exactly what needs to be done with the userboxes, and how we're going to go about it. Like, are we going to tackle one group of userboxes at a time, or assign certain users to a specific task and split the work? I believe the userboxes are "organized" enough for the present moment, and can perhaps be changed later on. For now, I believe the most important task is making sure the boxes are up to date, with coding, information, images, ect. We could also open join requests for those who wish to join the project, and utilize the rankings that this project once had when Helice was maintaining it.    ℓightning    00:18, 3/13/2013 

I think we should open the project for new join requests, and, this is just an idea, but we could possibly divide the sections of userbox topics to each organizer and, with some members, they could start going through, eh idk, basically I think we shouldn't tackle the whole thing at one, split it up or do portions at a time, I'm afraid that if we tried to do it all at once, some userboxes would accidentally be looked over. x3 *Duck c'mon skinny love... 22:56, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

Opening up the project for join requests would be a good idea, I'd say. Since there really haven't been comments on this, if it's okay with everyone else, I'd really like to start opening the join requests and get things moving along, since everything seems to have stopped dead in its tracks.    ℓightning    00:13, 4/9/2013 

Agreed then.

Note

Anything with bluestar in the shipping userboxes doesn't show up properly. Raven Chicks = Trouble 07:22, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

What exactly doesn't show up properly? Atelda 18:16, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Compilation of a "to-do" list

So as per the maintenance mode, what is there to do maintenance on? Updates

  • Update character list and images
  • Update shipping list and images
  • Update traits list
  • Update pet peeves

Suggestions

  • Potentially adding Warriors locations (e.g. "This user loves hanging out at Sunningrocks" or something)
  • Face-lift to userboxes
    • Maybe adding in a bit more advanced coding for appearance-wise, though this would be the absolute last update.

Please add onto this list so the other organizers and I know where to start and eventually we could perhaps have a permanent area on the talk page of what needs maintenance. Atelda 05:52, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

I'd love to help out, but I can't code at all. This is something that I really want to help out with. Would it be possible for someone to maybe teach me a little about coding so I can help out? —Ferk Queen of Arendelle 15:43, 07/16/2013

It's been several months, should we get started on this? -Raelic You've arrived at Panic Station18:23 Sun Sep 29 2013

Yes, please. Should we have a more detailed to-do list as a subpage? I mean, it could be constantly maintained by other users and updated as things get more into shape and things like that... I'm making no sense, I apologize. I'm sick. x.x    ℓightning    18:28, 9/29/2013 

List is here. With that being done, shall we open up join requests? Also, do the organizers want to split up the projects to keep things consistent or are we just going with a free-for-all? -Raelic You've arrived at Panic Station19:35 Sun Sep 29 2013

Well, we could do a combination of both. Like, you can work on whatever you please, but if you see that someone else is working on it, don't try and interrupt them, edit conflict with them, or like mess up what they're doing? Like, seriously. If you see someone is working hard on something, don't just redo the entire thing and show some respect and be nice, and offer your help, but don't just jump in and do whatever you please if someone's already working on it??    ℓightning    19:39, 9/29/2013 

So you are saying that we should 'reserve' a certain category and/or a certain of userbox to make sure no-one's already working on it? Hawkeh Your blood is so...Sweet 15:54, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

No not really just if you want to work on something make sure you check with people or something in case somebody else is working on it. It doesn't need to be that structured - it's just that edit conflicts are annoying. -Raelic You've arrived at Panic Station19:00 Sun Oct 27 2013

I agree with you. I will maul the next person who decides to conflict with one of my edits. >:D Hawkeh Your blood is so...Sweet20:49 Tue Oct 29 20:49, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hi! I would like to join Project Userboxes because I have lots of experience with coding, and my signature is proof (I don't mean to brag). I think I will be able to make very nice userboxes! Thanks for your time, Berryfoot May StarClan Light Your Path 00:19, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

hi sorry if im not alowed to comment becuz im not a member but preteen userbox should be removed. this is a 13+ wiki, right and preteens are 10, 11, and 12, and you should also block all the users with the preteen userbox until they turn 13. just sayin ~Barbeh
