I added a link to the sub-page. It should have displayed.

Added State Manager to the Forum Signature Banner page. Created sub-page called State Manger Icons, located at Forum_Signature_Banners/State_Manager_Icon.

Also, SuperDave1426, I have already created a table that is 50x3. This should help make it quicker to build the table, unless you already have one. If you do, go ahead and kill mine.


Ok, I guess a sub-page it is. :lol: However, um... 50x3? There's only 50 states. :D I planned on a 5x10 to allow room for the icons, etc., and accommodate everything. So yea, when I've finished creating all the icons, I'll probably kill your table in favor of another one. ;)

On the main banner page, I don't see any stat manager icon or link to the page that will hold the individual state icons - have they been added yet?

That's the plan. :D

Wait, what? Sub page? You really think that's needed when we'll have a nice neat table there?

With 50 entries we should create a table of the 50 entries alphabetically. I also recommend we put it on a subpage of the signature page.

Ok, yea, that makes perfect sense. That's why I'm glad I thought of it! :D

Thanks. ;)

What I'd like to do when they're all completed is to upload them to the Wiki and add a table to the State Manager page with those icons. This way, we've got a standard icon to use in forum signatures (like the edit count shields and rank cones, etc., that are elsewhere in the Wiki) for those who want to put them in their signatures.

Anyone have any objections to my putting them on the page?

I have another suggestion. The SM icons could be added to the signature page. This way a link could be added, directing editors to the signature page to choose their state icon.

The Regional Coordinator (RC) -- with whom the SM will have to work -- must be solely responsible for the final decision, taking into consideration the input of other RCs, CMs, and Champs.

To that end, I'm thinking along the lines of a more business-like "hiring" process [in the Southeast] and selecting from among interested (those that take the time to apply) and qualified applicants.

Once hired, the RC that hired them is responsible for them. They will be the group the RC primarily mentors. The RC has a more vested interest in the success of those they hire, rather than someone foisted upon them, because each SM's performance then reflects upon the RC. If it turns out the RC hired the wrong person, then it's on the RC to figure out how to handle it. (I'm uncertain exactly what that means, just yet.)

With this new SM position, now seems the time to implement a more structured approach. In this situation, where the SMs are responsible for working with the RC, hiring by the RC with community input is a better approach. It may be a small matter of semantics.

In my professional life, I've had success hiring the right people, and usually involve colleagues, immediate senior management and subordinates to rank-order resumes' as a means to mitigate any personal biases, though in the end the decision was mine.

A good portion of this looks great as part of the intro. We'll have to try and reword some of the page to get a more "professional" appearance.

I like a lot of what you have and would like to get it integrated with the trst of the page.
