I hope I've done this right. I look forward to seeing what is created. Cmsldc 23:07, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

You should not include the nowiki tags; they were just there to demonstrate. Just the tildae. I fixed your signature for you, though Kmh2039 23:28, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

So what do you think Pallavi? Anyone? Kmh2039 11:41, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Few things: 1. As discussed we have to make sure we are not duplicating the official rit website. Instead we need to make it interactive. I think the structure you made is good we just need to organize the order a little.

2. So more on the line of sections such as:

Trivia Questions(pertaining to the history)
Fact of the day (pertaining to some exciting news on campus)
Eating/hanging spots
Organization platter:Student Government pics
Calendar
Photos:picture of the day
RIT from your angle(a photography competition)
Discussion Board (Ask questions)

3. Again many if the things like the trivia etc is already on the website-tiger bytes so we dont have to spend too much time collecting any info.

4. As the background of the site - I have a cool tiger picture which I would like to get uploaded.

5. A first year student might me assisting us with the pictures etc on the site.

6. Can you change the TigerBytes wiki project to Tiger Pride wiki project. Thanks

Let me know what you all think about it.

Great work kari.Pxs4462 13:53, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Regarding #1: I believe our role is to supplement, not duplicate or replace. I do believe, though, that some duplication is necessary in the pursuit of that goal.
Regarding #2/#3: I think those things should be included, but as a road into a broader depth of information. Wikis thrive on having broad (albeit not unlimited) scope.
Regarding #4: Modifications to the skin have to be done administratively. Can you send it to me?
Regarding #6: I did it, but you could do it yourself as well.

Kmh2039 14:31, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

I would still like to limit too much of information on stuff which is already there. Preferably just a brief mention will be fine. I would like to discuss each of the points in the skin. Add/delete some stuff. Can you show me how to work on it from the staging area to production area(again if that what its called)? Pxs4462 13:24, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
