When putting together a long article, if you forget to push "Save changes" religiously, you can lose a lot of material from timing out. Can we extend people's logged in time?
Fixed, I believe. The timeout shoule now be more than 12 hours. nkinkade 16:59, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Adding a Case Study for a project that already has an entry in the wiki is problematic (see: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Valkaama) These are entries from Content Directories. Maybe case studies should have the folder /Case_Studies before them?
This function is buggy for me. After pressing Preview, I see multiple boxes like this: "Facts about Case_Studies/Cleanup RDF feed Revision time 23 March 2009 15:33 + Revision user Michelle Thorne +" Form fields spill under the right sidebar. Fixed. nkinkade 17:01, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Have link to CC wiki's "Upload File"? Or other way to integrate file upload within form.
Should not be enclosed by quotes, this is done automatically.
Is slightly confusing. Does it mean the author of the case study? Or the author of the content?
Ok, this refers to the subject of the case study. Should the terms be the same (i.e. "author/organization") like in above section?
Is it possible to add some pre-existing tags? Of course people should be able to add new ones, but it's helpful to see naming conventions and existing tags.
We should mention that multiple license URLs should be separated by a comma.
We should also note that multiple countries should be divided by comma.
Also, I noticed differing conventions of "global", "worldwide", etc.
When editing with form, there's no wiki formatting toolbar for the main text, just a link to a help page.
Because this form is created by Semantic Forms, about the only way I could find to get a WYSIWYG editor onto the textarea is with an extension called FCKeditor: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Semantic_Forms#The_free_text_input It may not be worth it?? nkinkade 19:55, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Another, less tech-inclined user just made this same suggestion again. Maybe we should reconsider installing the extension? I think it would overall help the formatting quality of the studies, and elsewhere on the wiki. --Michelle Thorne 09:19, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok, good to know. I think this boils down to a question of benefit vs. time required to install it. I'm not sure how much work is needed to set up the extension, but I won't call this a high priority bug. So, if it's too intensive, we should just leave it out. --Michelle Thorne 16:48, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
This subheading still confuses people; it could be explained better in the default text, perhaps. Do we want links to outside references, for example a newspaper article discussing the project, or do we want links to further media/content from the work itself?

* Meta: work with Greg to redesign. lots of mediawiki tweaking. The book jacket cover should be prominent and link to the whole PDF or new booklets. @Jess any further design elements we can include from the book? Move the featured cases more to the top Cut down on intro text. Less is more, and icons are best! We should have one -- reflecting new title "CC Stories". Also, see above! Make the navigation/sort boxes (the orange ones) smaller Can this pull or link to example/featured cases from each category? Might catch eyes better.
