From Gramps
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm an aging computer geek who wanted to balance my karma as a Gramps user.

After posting to the Gramps-User maillist & doing some proofreader edits of the wiki, I fell into the MediaWiki abyss. It seemed that every page I wanted to create (or expand) required tweaking a multitude of linked pages. Or I needed to build base reference pages that could be linked before the page grew excessively detailed and pedantic. I'm still clawing myself out of that abyss. -Brian

My preferred eMail account name is emYOUlation and is on Yahoo.com mail system. (Yes, it was a deliberate mispelling of emulation. This had been intended to be a SPAM CatchAll account.)

My growing Wiki ToDo list:

Special Interests

    interesting article on Localization & Internationalization for Word Press

Outstanding small targets

  see Objectification of the Gramps glossary 
  • Verifying the Addons pages list all addons
  • build an external parser (perhaps using a macro language) for the hosted addon file update file to generate a Table for the addons list page (this might be a pipedream)
  • cultivating a Transclusion (transcribed inclusion) to be more helpful when recycling and starting a new page in a tutorial WikiPage
  • build something to make summarizing a maillist thread discussion less_intimidating/more_inviting.
  • Find a way to consolidate translated pages indexed in Category & mask obsolete versions
  • Revise Download page to reduce overload
  • revise "How do I...?" template and add to
    • Help,
    • new,
    • editing page content
    • make it less intimidating. There is too much extra stuff to clean out and scroll through in the template
  • create a Gramplet/Add-on documentation template
    • include a Add-on indexing table so that can be pasted in the cross-reference
    • have standards for creating the naming of the page.
  • Quaker Calendar
  • How to adapt a built-in Report
  • Media Management
  • Onboarding survey for new WikiContributors
