Ideas for the Hawaii state Wiki

Postby Machete808 » Fri Oct 02, 2015 3:37 pm

Another project: adding to the Wiki.

I thought it would be good to have a standing forum for ideas on what new sections or content should go in the Hawaii Wiki. I've taken a look at what other states have done, and have started with these new sections or additional paragraphs to the existing Wiki (posted in my personal Wiki space for discussion purposes):

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:Machete ... _test_page

For now I haven't changed the standard Cities and Towns section, but once we have a chance to start a discussion on which Census Defined Populations merit inclusion, we can link to it and change this section ultimately.

Also, I think we can have a separate linked page to include the Place Name Harmonization list, when that's done.

Interested in hearing more thoughts on this. Take a look at other state pages and see what we might adapt to our needs. This is definitely a work in progress!

I've considered this, but alas, my journalistic skills are severely lacking. And besides, I might have had a political slant. ;) (Vicki knows what I'm talking about)

Hell yes. I mean, hell yes to the list. I'm not that strongly for separatism and isolationism. Although, separately working on a list is good. Less confusion of "what's done" and "where do I start".

Those are just a couple of thoughts, to start.


Sounds good, Maybe we'll keep places on the second page. Maybe generate a list of places that have a lock of 3 or greater that are mostly complete.

Actually, it would be good if we could get a Places Browser, like they use on some Raids, to pull up the ones that need completing. I wonder how hard it would be to get one coded for us...

Have updated the original post, with a link to some Wiki update material, hosted on my own space for discussion purposes.

(And I have inquired about getting a Places Browser with the developer -- it will be a long time, but I think there's hope for something fairly generic being developed.)

heh, I requested PB for Hawaii on the first raid it was used. I still feel that it's a must-have for state managers.

I agree. Apparently there was some technical issue with the browser processing so much of the map that's above my head, but there's a solution in the offing to that. I'll forward you guys the PM the developer sent me.

Also, Doug, could you look at the advisory about how to evaluate Places photos? I know that's been a concern. Is there a criterion you'd want to add to the little list?

Include this section as reference and it should be good with your pointing out of the most important items.
