2019 wiki reboot[edit source]

(2009), history[edit source]

I noticed a many of our pages are brimming with information that's about 10 years old. I'm interested in keeping the history accessible, while also allowing the wiki pages to grow afresh with the our new membership. As I update the wiki, I'll probably nuke the body text of some large pages, like Grants, Project proposals, to make room for new edits. Historical versions could be found under the "history" tab, as always.

An alternative I thought of was to create new pages under the old names and rename old pages with "(2009)" at the end. That way, the 10-year-strong version of those pages would still turn up in Google and be viewable separate. I liked that idea at first, but it's excessive now that I think about it. --P2 (talk) 02:36, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Jnm and I upgraded the MediaWiki installation to add rich-text editing. --P2 (talk) 02:36, 20 January 2019 (UTC)


Events[edit source]

2019 - Meetup Calendar[edit source]

I usually tell people to check the Meetup these days, so I've changed the Main page accordingly.

2009 - Google Calendar, RSS[edit source]

To find out what's going on at the Node, check out our Events Calendar! Stay on top of events with RSS and iCal feeds.

The events calendar (as it appears here) doesn't make a clear distinction between things that are Node and things that just happen to be interesting. For example, the Electronica Fest and the MP3Car cookout aren't connected in any way to Node officially, they're just events that may be interesting to some subset of folks who are interested in Node. I'm going to try splitting the frontpage calendar into "Upcoming Events", "Weekly Recurring Events" (similar to noisebridge's front page), and "In the Community" where people can add stuff arbitrarily.
