[UbuntuWomen] Wiki reshuffle -- Calling all wiki gnomes.

We agreed on the new wiki structure (as described below in the quoted
section of this email) at the meeting yesterday, so I stole a few
moments at work and shuffled things around. That said, it is entirely
possible that I have missed pages. In fact, I know I will have.

Hence, this is a call out to prospective wiki gnomes who are looking for
a way to contribute to the Ubuntu Women project.

A wiki gnome helps to keep wikis up to date and tidy. They do not need
to know anything technical, they really just need to know how to cut and
paste in their web browser.

Of course, experienced wiki gnomes have learned by practice, so we're
quite happy for you to practice your way up to being experienced by
helping us tidy our wiki :)

If you find pages in the wiki that are lacking the pretty top menu, then
please add the following line to the very top of the page:


If the page you're adding the menu to (or even another you pass in your
travels) has enough text that some headings need scrolling to be seen,
then you can make the page extra awesome by adding the following 1 line
right after the UWMenuHeader line -- be careful to take out any breaks
in the line that your email client might have put in: 

||<tablestyle="float:right; font-size: 0.9em; width:40%; background:#F1F1ED; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" style="padding:0.5em;"><<TableOfContents>>||

If you find pages that you know need fixing or updating but you don't
think you can do it all on your own, please add it to the table on
http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/WeShouldFix so that other contributors have
somewhere to go if they would like to help out.

If you also speak a language other than English, then we could really
use your help with translating our wiki. On the front page of
http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org, there are some links in the middle that
can become a new /Home for these languages. For example, for French it
would link off to http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/Fr. If your language is
not there, please feel free to put a link in a similar format (that is,
using the 2-letter representation for your language).

If you have any trouble or think you've broken something, feel free to
email me, or this mailing list, or the IRC channel for help. Almost all
of us have broken wiki pages before, so we will be really nice about
it :)

Happy wiki-ing! :)
