- Review article about on line communities:
- Kept up with activities of colleagues on recent changes and suchlike, contributing to discussions.
- With JCravens, added significantly to the draft of Task_force/Recommendations/Community_health_1 on volunteer recognition (previously 'rewards and awards').
- I may do some work tonight but the pressures of Christmas are now with me, buying/wrapping gifts etc, so I may be even less active, if not entirely absent, after today until early in the new year. My health continues to affect (effect?, I can never get that right) my productivity.
- From all our different brainstorms, I helped put together a table of nine basic ideas for recommendations. Thanks everyone for helping to narrow them down. We're already down to six. Maybe we will be down to even fewer. But this is sufficient to continue our work.
- Art Unbound 01:30, 24 December 2009 (UTC):
- Created page: Task force/Recommendations/Community health 3 about conflict management.
- Kept up with brainstorms and asked backup from Dutch Wikipedia on Recommendation 1: Volunteer recognition.
Planned activities for next week
Please be specific and aggressive. It is okay to roll activities from week to week if necessary.
- As I say, I may be absent next week. But the primary thing I want to do is write up a draft recommendation on social features. --Bodnotbod 18:11, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
- Based on the list that we have narrowed down, I'm going to start pushing very hard on all of them. Not sure where I'll start. But this will be fun. Randomran 23:54, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
- As I committed on conflict management (Recommendation 3) and on involvement of the Dutch wikipedia in recognition and rewards (Recommendation 1), that'll be my task for now. I'll try to catch up with literature. - Art Unbound 01:42, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
