This page is for suggestions to improve Teklogs, If you havn't already you should visit it here

I've started listing interesting stories on my User page as they come up because after I've read them anything I write is amatuer and very derivative.


I think rather than create individual stories it would be better to create subject pages. That way as related stories come up they can be added onto the subject page or included as an update to a previous story.

I have been planing CAN cards for Teklogs, if someone could help me set that up that would be great. We also need to work on standardizing the news and working on other content besides news.

Will try to help with this. Hopefully the main CAN help page is a bit easier to follow now? Are you setting up the pages here or on Teklogs? The advantage of doing it here is that images for the key card, stock images, etc are already here, but on the other hand if there are a lot of images associated with users on teklogs you might find it easier to do there. If you do it'll be good to still set up some links from here

If you can describe the CAN cards you want I can look into what needs doing to get them made up.

What you could do in regard to the subject idea is set up groups on the subjects here. That way you could keep it set up as it is now. to begin with you could just include related stories but gradually other people would help it and the group page would feed people through to teklogs.

sorry if thats a little off topic (just thinking while typing :-))

I have placed free advertisements for Teklogs on my personal website and I am making promotional banners and images for Teklogs, All I need is some short text (like a slogan or something else) to put on the images.

Drawde83, please explain further your idea for subject pages, that will make it easier for me to know exactly what your idea is.

yeah sorry, makes perfect sense to me :-)


Ok so we want more users. So if you group your topics by subject You can create a group based on that. Lets say you create one about Green technology. To begin with it would just have the links to the related news stories and links to teklogs. It wouldn't just be for teklogs, other people could also add links to their content. When users come to visit the Green technology page they may end up visiting Teklogs as well.


You could use the popularity of the groups to figure out what stories to make a priority. As other people create new groups that are related to technology you could add onto it and make it a new Topic for Teklogs.


Another idea which may help is to repeat these topics on teklogs and include the stories together on the same page. Then users can create updates or talk about how it relates to previous stories.

Now back to CAN cards.

I would like standardized templates that are somewhat customizable. I plan on setting this up in the next few days (at Teklogs) to show you what I mean.

What you really need to do is attract some writers to the wiki so that you have original content. Maybe you could ask at the journalism wiki if they'd be interested in helping out.
