OK, so I have slowly started to assemble a list of entries and writing them. So far I have a list of 85 entries I plan to write.
Expand Moneropedia entries on the Monero website
Update: this FFS has been canceled, and the funds sent to the General Fund
Posted on behalf of opennux:
Existing entries have to be expanded to have more complete content. A lot of them only have the very short summary used in the hover text for that entry. A complete entry example is the one for Account, although it isn't always possible to add that much information for an entry. If you are pitching to do this, but you aren't familiar with Kramdown, then you may want to team up with someone who is, and you can split the funds raised.
Just some notes that will be repeated on all tasks for the site:
Read the README on the GitHub repo: https://github.com/monero-project/monero-site
We have a very mixed audience visiting the site. Everything needs to start out with explanations for the layman, but also has to have some technical meat further down. Consider each page as if it were a Wikipedia article, with a digestible and easy to understand summary. An example of this is the Moneropedia article on "accounts"
Bear in mind that accessibility is important. Users may be using a screen reader, and so pictures need to exist in addition to text, not instead of it.
Link to Moneropedia terms using @ mentions. This creates a tooltip for the term, and also links to the page. Moneropedia terms are available in singular and plural, and using various alternate terms, view the specific entry's Kramdowm source for details.
If you don't know Markdown / Kramdowm or don't understand git, don't worry, just create a GitHub account and add your content as a GitHub "issue", and someone will do the integration for you.
Is this still being worked on by opennux? I would be willing to pick it up if it hasn't. Looking at the commits for the past 6 months the bulk of the commits to the site have been anonimal or fluffypony...I don't see any references to a name like opennux or commits that make reference to being part of this project.
I wish to credit drfred for the work and I added it to the github Monero-site Wiki welcome page.
drfred, you can join github, if you haven't already, and you/we can organize it into a better-looking arrangement/layout, but it is a great start.
I forego all funding and apologize to the community for delaying this project. I will devote some time when I can but it will be donated time.
yo gang, I think I wanna help with this, but I'm a bit lost on github as a noob ;) is there a list of terms that need explanation so I have a place to start or should I just create content for whatever monero related keywords I deem necessary?
ps: I'm NOT asking for any xmr for my help on moneropedia.
pps: one thing I noted is the lack of a title-tag for the pictures used. such a tag is a must have for seo reasons and borderless accessibility. Additionally if it is ever decided to give getmonero.org a more seo-friendly content overhaul, let me know. notice that for something like that, I'd ask for a little xmr I think ;)
I am horrible with estimating time needed for a task (obviously). On top of that, the past month or so has been one that I couldn't even make up if I was to offer fiction, rather than the reality that has occurred in terms of "life" issues. Suffice it to say, I apologize for the delays, but it is, in some way, to benefit of the Community, because I now will donate the Monero to the Gen Dev Fund.
And OpenAlias is my first topic for content.
tldr; Updates forthcoming, apologies abound.
I didn't bother asking for updates after dEBRUYNE did because I thought it might be something like that. It seems that it was everything like that. If you still complete several I have no problem with you being paid as this is important work that I can't do. Best of luck to you.
