Viewing a history listing
Much is happening besides the Occupy that the Occupy needs to know.
than is only one reason for not defaulting to the Occupy calendar.Why not go to a calendar page with a "suggested events" listing on the page as bullets and headings that reflect the Portland wiki brand?
For example, I am getting ready to flash out the mayoral race, which as many forums about town that were missed in calendaring. Even if the Portlandwiki is all Occupy all the time - we should be attending diligently to the mayoral race, as it will be pertinent.
Our market is more than Occupiers, and Occupiers are more than that; they are the 99%. Give 'em the info they need.
Hi Teresa, I think you touch upon a great point: PortlandWiki is not just about Occupy Portland, and we should have a clear place in PortlandWiki for events that don't relate directly with Occupy. I do think the Occupy Portland Events page should only be about events relating to Occupy Portland (hence the name), but that's been the work of other people so I don't have any other thoughts about that. As for non-Occupy events, it would be great to have a calendar that encompasses them. I'm not sure what would be the best way to do that in PortlandWiki (we've tried a few other things in the past, which either fizzled or never really took off), and I certainly won't be able to take the lead on that project (due to time, not lack of interest!). But I welcome anyone else who wants to do so.
Whatever ends up being done with events, I think it should tie in somehow with the PortlandWiki:Current events page (even just a link on it).
Kotra et al,
This became evident when I was over viewing to create a calendar for Mayoral forums and other events. I don't know how extensible that would be to other pertinent election events for community involvement with the election cycle in general, but I think it is important that we have that going on with the Portland wiki if at all possible.
I am hip deep this week, but would have more time nest week to begin work on such a project. As you know, the wiki Monday and Wednesdays are not generally held in locations where I can participate, due to the seating accommodating a disability. Thus, I am not able to participate at the level wiki community member with access to community as others are able. Help would be welcome.
