* Looking for funding - going through lists of potential funders for potential matches.
** Using Google Spreadsheets. Happy to share with anyone who's interested.
** started [[Appropedia:SponsorsSupporters/FAQ]]
* How to raise our profile? (-> traffic and media)
** Identify controversial and current topics, & link from front page.
*** How to identify controversial content? Someone who follows the news and writes content. Talk with Wikinews community.
*** Look for journalism student intern to lead this content, or is that stretching too far? Communications intern?
* Get work started on [[Appropedia:Bot tasks|bot tasks]]
* How to handle "interesting stubs" e.g. [[Plastic bottle greenhouse]]. Socmed -> "Can you add to our page on...?"
* How to request synopses - special case of the copyedit tag, adding pages to a subcategory? {{tl|add summary}}? (On [[Plastic_Sheeting_for_Emergency_Shelter_and_Other_Purposes]] I used <nowiki>{{copyedit|Add summary of the original document - at least take something from its introduction would help. Use your own words, as we do not have permission to use the document's text.}}</nowiki> - adapt this, with [[Help:Notices]].)
=== Quickies ===
BetterMeans (when I have a good connection):
* Request a way to "open" or remove an owner from the bot task.
* Identify data sets, and ways to use them. E.g. clean teach data at http://www.reegle.info/ & http://data.reegle.info/ - we can embed their open data/data sets in MediaWiki, Explore OKFN's database of data sets.
* Check [[User talk:Teratornis #File license details]] -> create a task.
=== Interns and volunteers ===
* UN: http://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en/org/register.html
=== Category cleanup === Cleanup & make consistent the subcategories of:* [[:Category:Organizations]]* [[:Category:Energy]], esp [[:Category:Wind]]. Remove [[:Category:Renewable energy]]? ''Please add to this list. To link a category, use a colon, like this: <nowiki>[[:Category:Wind]]</nowiki>''  Request help via blog - draft:<blockquote>Over a breakfast meeting with [http://www.mitra.biz/joomla/index.php/home Mitra Ardron] recently, he described how he's someone who prefers to navigate via categories, rather than search - and he'd come up with some examples on Appropedia that are very confusing.  Now, anyone can edit the categories in a wiki, but it's best if final changes are made by someone whoChriswaterguy's been working with the wiki and with the categories for a long time - so I'm putting out a request for help. Have a look through our categories, by: * looking up topics you're interested in, or* browsing the [http://www.appropedia.org/index.php?title=Special%3ACategoryTree&target=Fundamental&mode=categories&dotree=Show+tree Category Tree].  Find examples of confusing categories - places where categories are duplicated, badly named, or you wouldn't know which category to use on a page. Then paste the category names or links in the comments below.  Thanks!</blockquote> === Moving categories === * [[User:Chriswaterguy/moving category page content with history]] & personal notes Then use bot to remove {{tl|Browsetopic}} and {{tl|Newpageresource}}.
