Getting back to the original topic of this post, is there an "end-date" for the Ideascale thing? Don't want to blow my 50 gold stars on early ideas, only for even better ideas to come up later.

Before that meeting, it will be useful to have some explicit brainstorming as a way for the committee to collect some idea of what we collectively consider important, or would like to see. Last year we did a brief survey, which wasn't a huge success; this year I would like to try something different. I set up a site for us at http://wmau.ideascale.com/ This site lets anyone suggest an idea, and others can put a number of votes to support various ideas. I have it configured so that anyone who registers with IdeaScale can add a new idea or vote on ideas. With voting, every user has a fixed number of votes (50 I think), and you can put multiple votes on an idea if you really like it. If you don't like an idea, just don't give it any votes. :) You can also of course add comments, and that is probably the most valuable thing you can do. I would guess this is most useful for 1) things that take longer than a week to plan and 2) things that involve or have some impact on the membership and/or general public. So this will not encompass all of the committee's responsibilities; some tech and policy and governance things won't be relevant to mention here. Secondly for Melburnians, we are planning to arrange a meetup for one of the meals on the weekend, probably in Richmond or the CBD. The details will appear soon at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Melbourne_15 . Please feel free to give your feedback on this list or privately. thanks, Brianna WMAU president _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaauemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
