- The To Do List -


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Start and Finish the Resources page.

    Alternate the colours on the forum.

    Make the chat box easier to find.

    I’d say ’ include chat box inline in forum pages’

    That way one can be in the chat and read the forum at the same time. I think this would help to populate the chat.

    Great work Calum. I’m all for a “task based system”, keeping a central list is a good start.

    Just as an idea for the future, or where applicable (larger tasks).

    I used to work setting up Planned Maintenance systems, which included the FMECA (Failure analysis) and Task creation/allocation.

    Some “Faults” need to be monitored closely, like Wellenreiter and I are doing with the Network. Or, the task of monitoring support for any new problems occurring.

    Some Task can be cyclic, i.e. weekly or yearly.

    I don’t want to go on to much, but (as an idea) add a second section, type of tasks required, who they are currently allocated to, or forum request for volunteer.

    e.g.

    Task: Finish off the article we were working on.

    Task Type: One off project, cyclic task, monitoring task

    Allocated to: Callum, Ruthie, Volunteer requested

    Task: Monitoring Feathercoin Network.

    Task Type: One off project, cyclic task, **monitoring task **

    Allocated to: Bushstar, Wrapper, Wellenreiter, Ghostlander

    I found this: as an example of an for possible long term direction, regarding forum task allocation.

    http://www.mybb.com/features/tasks

    Github is Feathercoin’s “official” method of managing “one off”, project style tasks. It is powerful, open source and free to public use.

    It’s disadvantage is it is quite technical. A massively useful and important skill for any one technical or who needs a work control system, to learn tho’.

    I like the idea. Sorry for my absence lately, I’m snowed under with setting up a Community Interest Company, one of my projects has unexpectedly sprung into life and needs my support.

    • Checking for database tables that are corrupt and need repairing
    • Rebuilding the daily list of birthdays to be shown on the home page
    • Updating the â€Å"most popular†thread and post statistics
    • Cleaning up old Captcha images, search history and thread redirects
    • Promoting users to new user groups based on the group promotions
    • Sending out mass-emails and newsletters
    • Lifting expired user account bans and suspensions

    I like the sound of whatever this is.

    Also, Feel free to amend the list in the format you’ve done. For now I suppose just have volunteers required written down for task which don’t seem to all ready have people working on em.
    If no one has time, it’s ok, but everyone is welcome to edit the OP


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    This (Tasks) has need an open source method of control, knowing people are volunteers. We just need to keep gradually chipping at it. I’ll get round to documenting forum maintenance tasks (etc) I have done or identified in the past and add them to the list.

    As another idea worth looking into is the newly released Mozilla TogetherJS, which is an open source collaboration tool. Its a bit like Google Docs, without all the spys.


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Update Feathercoin related information on other pages.

    Example: http://wiki.cryptsy.com/ftc

    We also could use this page as substitute for the Wiki page that was deleted…

    Should become a reoccuring task, e.g. every 3 month??!

    May I suggest that we keep the tasks in trello? (www.trello.com)

    It would make things like seeing progress, asigning tasks to specific persons and labeling of tasks a hell lot easier 🙂

    I could administrate such a thing if you want, already administrate around 10 boards for private and work purposes, works like a charm for stuff like this 🙂

    That would be great if you were up for it. Asana is good as well.


  • Regular Member | Tip vizay

    I’ll put a trello or asana up sometime this evening and we can evaluate it 🙂


  • Regular Member | Tip vizay

    I looked into asana tonight, unfortunately it seems they use a licensing model based on amount of people using it, the free version was limited to 15 which is to little.

    Instead, I’ve set up a trello org and board and made it public for now (I don’t mind keeping it public, transparency is good) so you can view the board at the following link:

    https://trello.com/b/cfUhrHjM

    If you want access to using the board please drop me your email in a PM and I’ll add you asap 🙂

    For those who hasn’t used trello yet it’s super simple. Look at it as a digital board of post-it notes and columns to put them in. You can then assign labels, owners, due dates and other things to each note.

    I’ve set up an organisation called feathercoin, that org can have multiple boards under it so if for example the devs want a board I can set it up for you too 🙂

    And of course, any community projects or similar could also be managed via a board under the feathercoin org if you want to 🙂 (all this is just suggestions of course).

    I set the structure up as easy as it can get, there are 4 columns. Stuff gets added to the suggestions columns first, then we can set up a vote on each item or something in that line and things that get voted through is moved to the “todo”.

    Again, just thoughts and nothing is written in stone 🙂

    Looks great cheers vizay. 🙂

    @Vizay if you’re up for it why don’t you and I work as Project Manager and keep a track of everyone’s tasks I am not on the Feathercoin Trello.


  • | Tip null

    I’m really liking it so far… Don’t mind me playing around with it… if people want to move stuff back then I’m ok with it…

    I don’t mind that at all, I do have some what of a fetish for organizing stuff and making things more efficient 😛

    If I can contribute with that I’d be more than happy to do it!


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    If we set up a good system, all the forgotten tasks will be automatically highlighted. Volunteers can sign off some task, so they can just chip in when they have time, and easily find a thing to do.

    I think we’re still looking for a good system for managing open source projects, there must be one out there somewhere. Although every open source project I’ve looked at so far, and forum, does seem to have its own or no system.
