Description[edit]

To take care of the Wiki of the Belgian Pirate Party.

Members[edit]

Members of the squad have admin access. They can remove, restore or protect a page, and they can also block an IP address or an user account. Feel free to contact them if necessary.

Vision[edit]

What the wiki should provide :

  • A place to share and find information
  • An efficient and noninvasive way to communicate between pirates.

Projects[edit]

Visual editor[edit]

We consider the option of installing the Visual Editor to ease page edition.

Blocking[edit]

  • We are not sure whether this new tool would make the edition easier, or on the opposite it will complexify everything by hiding wiki syntax from the user.
    • This requires more discussions within the WikiSquad.

Translations[edit]

As of February 2017, we installed the Translate extension. We are currently testing it in order to see if it fits our needs. We also plan to install the ContentTranslation extension.

Issues[edit]

  • There is a "bug" with Semantic Mediawiki and with Categories. Translated pages using a sidebar, such as Template:ProjectSidebar, occurs several times in the generated category. For instance, Apartmentgarden will show up four times (one per language + the original page) in the Category:Active Projects. The exact same problem occurs with semantic data.

Blocking[edit]

Future[edit]

  • Provide adequate tools to crews and squads to easy their workflow.
  • Implement an alternative to the mailing list (with semantic).
  • Improve the searching tool.

Done[edit]

  • February 2017: We implemented a calendar through Semantic Mediawiki, see [1]. The result can be found here.
  • January 2017: We moved the Wiki to a new server.


TODO[edit]

  • Create/import a template 'outdated content/page'.
  • Organise, distribute and manage statues administrator and Bureaucrate and delete obsolete user accounts
  • Propose wiki templates in the according page
