Proposal:Image Map Prototyping
With Imagemaps we could build a prototype of a Wiki for testing changes of the look of our Wikis.
One can build a static Wikilike system consisting of lots of imagemaps. Wikilinks are simulated by hyperlink areas. The images will be taken from a real Wiki.
If we want to develop a different skin or add a new software function the task is just to change the pictures and the place of the hyperlink areas. We even could do that in a Wiki (Wikimedia Laboratories) because the Extension:ImageMap is active in the Wikimedia Laboratories.
Such a prototype could be tested easily by Wikimedia editors. I hope that developing such an image map prototype will be easy and less expensive.
The purpose of this proposal is to develop a low-budget usability test for improvements of the software mediawiki, the skins or the content (e.g. help-pages). We could develop different versions by just changing some pictures and test which one is best.
