I'm generally liking how the contests are set up, although I'm wondering if I should figure out how to make them all seem more... equal? I'm not sure how to describe it. They just seem kind of off balance right now.

I like having the descriptions in the themes, but for some I'm unsure as to what to write since they didn't put in too much effort, and others put in a lot so theirs are longer. I also know that the SDS one was a bit longer than it should have been, but I did take it straight from the page.

Links and images need to be inserted, but right now I'm just creating a draft to build on.

I have most things added in now, but it's looking pretty gigantic, especially the TOC. I'm going to take a look at it later and find ways to either consolidate or create new pages. For example, the Monster Mash Up is probably going to go on its own page.

We could also use __NOTOC__, or if we can figure out how to make it work {{TOC limit}}

Shaoman (and probably Sunday) are outreach activities, rather than online events. Though it is going to be awkward to categorise them from now on--Toral, Department Director and subsupreme overlord 01:54, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Hm I thought they were still online events, sure that the name of the group that makes the events have changed, but it's still events and they're still online so I figured they were still online events. And I also thought that the online events category isn't only for things the OE/OA team have done so I put the project gaidin page there too. --Zimone Zarasri 14:27, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, there was discussion about avoiding the term "online events" as it can be misleading and confusing with RL events, but it probably isn't an issue for library categorisation. I think they are officially now "Community Outreach Activities" Someone in the department might know--Toral, Department Director and subsupreme overlord 16:23, 27 October 2011 (UTC) For example, the category "Online Events" is currently only within the "Department of Community Development Category" If we keep using "Online events" as a category for things like Sunday, Shaoman etc, it will need to be in the category "Department of Community Outreach"

I was pretty sure they were still Online Events it was just that the Department was renamed to include the other duties that they undertake (birthdays, philanthropy drives, etc) --Kerna 16:53, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

I have been re-reading the discussion in Exec about what to call it. I couldn't work out what they finally went with. From the Membership Manual:

The Online Activities Coordinator organizes activities that occur on a community-wide level on our message boards and chat rooms, including birthday lists and celebrations. Considers creative methods in which site-wide events can impact the real world.

The Online Activities Team assists the Online Activities Coordinator with planning and facilitating our online activities.

Though as long as the pages have the details correct, the categorising only matters in so much as people can navigate via them and don't have to go via the Department of Community Development for events that department didn't organise--Toral, Department Director and subsupreme overlord 18:36, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Shouldn't the last details about winners etc be updated? --Imzadi Hopewind 17:27, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

It should! I've been totally slacking on this. If you want to update it, feel free. --Jeffan Caliarthan 03:00, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure where I can see the results? So if you give me link, I'll try? --Imzadi Hopewind 08:13, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
