This is a todo list of items that currently don't fall under any Teams or Strike-teams. Visit the Team Pages for Team-related information.

Staff Organization

  • Formulate Plan
    • Vision
    • Bylaws
    • Develop task-list of ongoing duties from each "group" <-underway
  • Regular status updates with key leaders
  • Organize staff, delegate tasks to qualified people
  • Fire people when it isn't working out sooner rather than later (this should go in ongoing duties task-list once created)
  • password sharing, multi-factor protection (see: http://point-at-infinity.org/ssss/ for an example)
    • Getting LDAP setup would aid in this endeavor

Communications

  • Determine best method to poll community on decisions (slash polls are stated to be unreliable, comments are useful but harder to draw empirical data from)
  • Determine Staff Communication Forum
    • Keep mailing list
    • redmine (this would require some ruby on rails help devs)
    • Use slashcode test server (would require tweaks but we could test new code while communicating, moderating best ideas etc.)
    • Aquire concensus
    • Cut the dead weight (nuke forums from orbit after data migration to wiki)
  • Clarify our stance on vulgarity in comments (ALL CAPS is preventing posting in some cases (filter) swears seem to work)
  • New Name contest (final one, we hope) <--we have a short list for this, see MrBluze
  • Summarize staff meeting(s) (or not?)(suggest: move to Editors section?mrcoolbp (talk) 19:47, 11 March 2014 (UTC))

Business/Legal

  • Choose incorporation model
    • Carry out necessary tasks to achieve chosen incorporation model status
  • Solicit legal advice:
    • Requirements for keeping logs of user activity
    • How to respond to DMCA takedown requests
    • Identify the legal (copyright?) implications of cross-posting (reposting stories posted elsewhere)
  • Incorporation Model-dependent items:
    • Swag? (sync with art)
    • Marketing - Do we do it? how do we do it?
    • Ads?
    • Donations?
  • social media, do we want to pursue it? who? How?
