main wiki page links update

Patryk Benderz
Hi all,
I am looking for a person who is able to update "Community" box on main
wiki page (Marko, are you the one?). Particularly it is about linking
"news" link to latest Community Update. I see that it is already done,
but i would like to inform someone when we are ready to release CU. This
will relieve you guys from monitoring if latest CU is out.

Yes, I think I'm the only active admin. I have to say that I'm unhappy
with the situation of the cummunity updates at the moment, because
this means extra work for me and it is not a reliable system because
I'm the only person who can do the updates.
This system already showed its weakness when Brenda was the wiki admin
- once the news weren't updated for three month. Therefore I already
proposed to entirely remove the link to the news from the sidebar.
This was done, but it was added in again some days aftwerwards without
any comments. Brenda kept updating the news item for some time, but
later I had to take over this role. So currently I regularly have to
update a system I don't even like.

But as you have raised the issue I'm using this opportunity to discuss
and improve this system.

First of all I think it would help me very much if I had someone to
remind me regularly to do the release, so thanks for your offer.
However this would still result in some problems because there are
days when I can't access the internet and so I can't release the CU in
time. Therefore I think it would be a good idea if some of the team
writing the community updates would have admin privileges as well. You
can contact Roh ([hidden email]) if you would like to have admin
privileges.
Furthermore I think it could be a good idea to just link the sidebar
to a generic newspage where all other news are linked (similar to the
current news archive) instead of linking to one specific page.

Personally I'd prefer the third option. What do you think?

No problem, if only my memory will let me do this, i will put you on CC
of CU posts

Fine, i will. I'll ask him if it is possible to have write acces to
"news" link

If this version of wiki software supports aliases or something similar,
it would be wise, as you said, to link "news" to an alias, and modify
this alias accordingly...

I agree. I'll ask Roh about this.

Actually that's not what I meant. However I think this would be a very
good solution, so I just implemented it. The item in the sidebar now
links to "Community Updates/current"[1], which is a redirect to
"Community Updates/2009-12-09" at the moment. So if you would like to
release new community updates you just have to edit the redirect at
"Community Updates/current"

The downside of this is that the "News" item doesn't turn black if you
click it (like the other items in the sidebar), and that there is this
notification at the top saying "Redirected from Community
Updates/current" - But I think we can live with that.

Great :) I can live with that also, and most of people probably will not
notice this change. BTW, it looks like "Portal" link works similar way -
it doesn't get black also.
