Do you develop and administrate customized versions of Tikiwiki for use in enterprises, non-profit organizations, government agencies, or educational institutions? Would you like to see a Web site (in the tw.o hierarchy) focused on your needs?
Please let me know (write to bpfaffenberger), let me know, and tell me how the site could help you! Share ideas! I've plenty of Web publishing space for the site. The question is, how best to implement it?
Why a separate site for rollout developers/admins? Although we share many of the same concerns and interests that Tiki developers have, we have unique concerns of our own. Most important of these is this: After we successfully make the argument for applying Tiki to a problem in our organizations, it is DAMNED important that the site functions smoothly and delivers as promised!!! This is a serious matter — professional reputations and users' needs are at stake! We need to get to know each other, share resources, and share experiences!
At such a site, we could do the following:
1. Share our experiences - which Tiki features are stable enough to use?
2. Share STYLE SHEETS and TEMPLATES! It is a TON of work to modify Tiki's style sheets and templates so that they meet minimal accessibility and organizational Web design guidelines - we should SHARE
3. Help the Tiki developers identify and fix problems (some of them long-standing!) that make it difficult or in some cases impossible to use Tiki or certain Tiki features in enterprise settings
4. Develop criteria for Tiki 2.0 based on our experiences trying to APPLY Tiki to enterprise and other organizational settings
Tell me your concerns — tell me what you'd like to see on the site!
