There are many features that would be nice to have (see [[Appropedia:Desired features]]). Our current priorities, in rough order, are:
 
# WYSIWYG editor - FCKEditor looks very close. Is it ready to implement?

# New [[Appropedia:Skin|skin]] - very important to make Appropedia an enjoyable and usable site for visitors.

# Social features: better integration with network sites such as [http://www.wiserearth.org/ WiserEarth] and [http://www.globalswadeshi.net/ GlobalSwadeshi], and better ways of monitoring activity and engaging with people in Appropedia.

# Social features: better integration with network sites such as [http://www.wiserearth.org/ WiserEarth] and [http://www.globalswadeshi.net/ GlobalSwadeshi], and better ways of monitoring activity and engaging with people in Appropedia. (Also: better display of RSS feeds, so people can display their blogs in their userspace.)
 +
# Adding semantic features without some of the non-user-friendly aspects of Semantic MediaWiki. How does SMW work with FCKEditor? Which features of SMW should we turn on? (Off: Inline semantic information is probably confusing to newbies unless handled very cleverly in WYSIWYG. On: Allowing users to view the intersection of categories would be a very useful feature.)
 
# Fix RecentChanges so it's possible to view more than 14 days.

# A box on the navbar letting people easily email friends about the page they're viewing. "Tell a friend about this site. Email addresses will not be saved or used for any other purpose."
 +
# Map/geotagging features. (What do we want? Allow searching by distance from location...)
 +
# Develop a plan for grading articles and flagging them according to accuracy, reliability, usefulness. This raises many issues, including the weighting given to ranking by regular users compared to "expert" users. The ''Flagged Revisions'' extension is likely to be important.
