- 2 Association
- 3 Community
- 4 Physical Space
Techinc has existed for 10 years now; there are tons of things that we do and know that arent written down anywhere but are just in the heads of people. This is presenting more and more of a challenge explaining to new members, or even existing members who did not get hear about recent changes, etc.
When a new member joins the association, a board-member takes the new member by the arm and gives an extended tour around the space that can easily take upwards of an hour of time; simply showing, explaining, demonstrating things. This could be greatly reduced if more things would be documented, on the wiki, link-able, etc.
For that reason, I (Justa) am asking people to step up and help 'fill in the gaps' by helping write a little bit about our space; taking a moment to document 'your particular bit of expertise'.
How to help
For each of the bullet-points below, a sub-page is created which'll be empty by default but can/should be filled in with a short, succint, text telling about the use/function/reason of that thing. Some of these can be quite long (like the association parts); some of these could be as simple as a few words on how to turn something on/off, where to find X,y or z..etc.
The intention is to take all these texts and collate them into a workable document in some way. It is *very* likely that the document will be one that'll live entirely on the wiki; with most instructions/info simply being a short statement about something and then a link to the wiki-documentation about that item/thing.
The texts collected via this project are very likely going to be used to UPDATE or AUGMENT existing wiki-documentation, or be used to CREATE the documentation if it isnt there.
