This page is a sort of 'global'/ shared to-do list specifically for CASwiki, and a collection of ideas for the development of CASwiki. If you have comments or suggestions you are welcome to add them to our talk page. For an introductory 'How to help' article please see here. There's a separate village pump page for UK articles.

Would it be better to have Laguna Beach by itself, or make Orange County, California to include nearby cities: Anaheim, Irvine, Santa Ana, etc.? --Ethan (talk) 22:02, 5 March 2016 (PST)

Page redesign


  • set up Policies as a subheading within resources
  • set up a category:Food activism, within category:Food
  • develop a template to start off 'Local communities in...' based on the current set up eg see Netherlands, with first box something like 'there are no local commnity pages in ... yet. Start one? (arrow or ... to) next box
  • develop place based topic links similar to local communities (gallery-type) links
  • split resource page links into 'How to's' and 'Other links' eg as in Localism UK
  • redesign event pages eg International sustainable community events so that based around one internal link, one image, one date. All other info on (individual) event pages (the internal link)
  • update, for current year, events info on topic pages
  • sort and fork items on news pages, into comment box eg as in Climate news but with design as for Bristol (table rather than separate template)
  • create a cycling activism category, within sustainable community action topics, including more from within the cycling category eg bikesharing
  • update nos. of topic and resource articles and change on portal
  • over time fork topic news and comment to separate articles, dividing up as necesary into current and historical according to size; adjust layout on topic articles so that resources is in rh col as appropriate
  • develop some sort of 'add your comment' box for comment cols on topic (and resource) pages
  • more explicit local links on United States page
  • expand Health to Health and wellbeing GreenCheck.pngDonePhilralph (talk) 09:33, 8 December 2018 (PST)
  • separate 'how to' section within Resources section of topic articles? added to some pages Philralph (talk) 10:07, 31 August 2019 (CDT)

Major projects

  • identify and copy across local headlines to topic news sections eg Climate_news#2017 from Spain, especially pre 2017/18
