Description: The Wiki Committee is in need of a terrific writer to help us straighten out the internal side of Fanlore — basically, we need help reorganizing and rewriting policy pages and help files, and organizing them in a user-friendly manner. You do not need to be an expert in wiki markup, though some experience and comfort with basic wiki markup (linking, categorizing) is needed.
The committee’s feeling is that our policy pages are somewhat over-detailed, and our help files aren’t sufficiently helpful in walking a new user through the process. Basically, we need help straightening this out to make Fanlore as user-friendly as possible. The ability to write clearly and succinctly, using examples and user-friendly language, is required, as is the ability to organize information.
Estimated Time Involved: We would love to have this complete by the end of the term (December 18th), but the position can continue into the new term if necessary. No specific time commitment is required per week, but we would like to see steady progress.
