Staff & Volunteers / Design by Committee: Help design the staff site.
« on: January 22, 2008, 04:34:40 PM »
Hey all,

I'm inspired to try something different, so I'll take a swing here.

I'm trying to create a staff information site for staffers to get information.

There are some basic requirements on access:
* There are at least two roles.
* One role is the normal staffer: they have the ability to read nearly everything on the staff site.
* One role is the senior staffer: they have the ability to write new content, either for all staff or just senior staff.
* People who aren't staff should have no access to the staff site.

Other requirements on content:
* There should not be a bottleneck or a single gating point:  if the tech-lead wants to write a paragraph, they should be able to do it directly without having to rely on some administrators busy schedule.
* There should not be a risk to bury content.  if GR posts 10 updates on guest status, this should not bump a critical article on con-ops.

And two last administrative requirements:
* It should be easy to install (less than 8 hours)
* It should require little to no day-to-day maintenance.


As a stake in the ground, I'm thinking of MediaWiki with some tight permissions.  I can set up one Wiki page per department, control editing a bit, and that should be that.


Are there better options?  What say you?

This is the place where you can post about something that you made.

So be visible and fun.

Use tags in your subject titles. For example, you are showing off your art project put something like [Artwork]. If you are posting something relating to your music creations, post [Music]. This is not necessary, but helpful.

OK: Links to your artwork, or deviantart site.
Not OK: Linking to other people's artwork.  This isn't the point of this forum.
OK: Explaining that you take commissions for art.
OK: Asking for an artist to make something for you.

OK: Links to your cosplay photos.
Not OK: Linking to cosplay photos of other people.  We have a different forum for that.
OK: Explaining that you take commissions to make other people costumes.
OK: Asking someone to make a costume for you for money.

OK: Advertising that you do commissions.
Not OK: Using this place as a store.
This forum will no longer support buying and selling. Please go to this section: (dealers room)
http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/board,33.0.html
Or this section:(Cosplay section)
http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/board,30.0.html


Not OK: Bumping your threads solely to keep them on the first page.
Not OK: Using your friends to do a bump, solely to keep it on the first page.


OK: Praising and being positive for something posted here.
OK: Constructive Criticism and feedback
Not OK: Being overly mean or being a jerk.  Go to byo/b/

So far so good?


This does not have to be exclusive to art or cosplay or anime, but the same general rules apply.
If you have a game or science fair project or an acting gig or something that you've created, then post it here.

This forum is experimental; I'd like to see this grow and prosper, in the "by Fans" style.

Hi all,

There will be another incarnation of the trivia game show.

Right now, I'm looking for some people who can assist in writing questions.

It's mostly a trivia show, so I'm biased for those who can write that sort of things.  I'm trying to inject some more humor into things, so if you're good at jokes and being funny, that's helpful too.

If you're ambitious and want to go all the way up to producing (that is being able to create an idea, sketch it in a feasible manner, making it actually work) in addition to writing, that would be also appreciated.

If you're interested and interesting, please email me, scott@fanime.com

Thanks,
Scott

This is for those "fanime bb" get-togethers.  I would appreciate it if these threads stayed in this section.

I have set a 14-day auto prune. I may increase this time to a larger number, but it will not be infinite. If you want to save something permanently, please consider archiving it yourself.

If you have any questions about the forum, please post in the separate "forums.fanime.com" section.

Forum Games / Welcome to the new Forum Games sub-forum

Welcome to the new Forum Games sub-forum.

You may play games in this sub-forum.  I would appreciate it if you didn't play games elsewhere.  

Games are loosely defined as the "not pure discussion threads".
This includes the "say something about the last poster", "three word story" and other stuff like that.  This probably doesn't include "Post your Favorite" and its other variants.

I have set a 14-day auto prune.  I may increase this time to a larger number, but it will not be infinite.  If you want to save something permanently, please consider archiving it yourself.

If you have any questions about the forum, please post in the separate "forums.fanime.com" section.
