  • Lack of interest after initial flurry of activity

What we need done on the Hivewiki

  • Addition of new content in sections where a skeleton outline exists. Just pick a spot and start adding content, even if it's just a page about yourself or the lists you're on.
  • Editing of existing content. There are always typos and formatting errors to be fixed.
  • Policy Documents for articles, archived threads, information resources on the wiki (essentially HOWTO documents for adding content to the wiki)
  • Policemen! We need people to check that the wiki isn't poisoned by unscrupulus characters.
