Thanks much for the offer of help, Beria. Really appreciate that. Personally, I would agree with the sentiment that a single website serves the purpose. We can simply lock some pages to make them static, the rest can work like a wiki.
Are there more suggestions on this issue? Should we have two websites (one static, based on wordpress or drupal and the other a wiki) or should one (wiki) serve the purpose best? Beria, at this point of time, I would say that anything is better than the plain pages we have now. We require some standardization too, so that we can organize information better (through categories). I think the Wikimedia Hong Kong page (wikimedia.hk) looks great. Are there more examples? Maybe we need some out-of-the-box thinking to create something new. (-: anirudh On Mon, Jul 4, 2011 at 4:52 PM, Béria Lima <berial...@gmail.com> wrote: > > I can help redesign the wiki main page.
