Individual reports

I feel I've lost my mojo this week. I haven't achieved much. Inspired by Randomran I created tutorials, but aside from that I haven't contributed much. I'm in need of some guidance, I think. So anyone that can offer me a task to do is welcome to hit me up for the work. --Bodnotbod 10:01, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Reviewed responses to the Question of the Week that directly relates to the Community health mandated recommendations, and looked at preliminary ideas proposed by other strategic planning task forces.
  • More review of articles for facts to support recommendations.
  • Following village pump discussions about strategic planning on Foundation wikis.
  • Continue to update list of current ways that editors are recognized/rewarded on different wikis

Things have been busy. I participated in the IRC log. I also noticed the quality task force became more interested in community health, so I chimed in. Things are gonna keep being busy for a while, but I'm hoping to take one last kick at the research on Wikipedia. Maybe focus more research on recommendations later.

Although I don't consider myself a regular member, I made two recommendations this week:
  1. Assertion: We need vision, direction an cooperation
  2. Talk:Task force/Community Health under "moving"

Planned activities for next week

Please be specific and aggressive. It is okay to roll activities from week to week if necessary.

Group activities

    • Agenda items 1) Ideas for 4 (four) recommendation that can be supported by facts. 2) Ideas about the best way for the task force to decide on which recommendations to use. (For example, should our recommendations fill a needed gap left by other task forces. Or should our recommendations reaffirm the work of other task forces and duplicate them.) 3) Time frame for completing the work. 4) Ideas about ways to keep our group motivated and on task to get the work done.
