    Regarding your “quick list of what you would expect to see being discussed on WUG Share:”, does that mean that discussions or topics need to focus on those or not ?

    I ask because by far my biggest issue is my department’s lack of interest in participating actively in this new era of data sharing.
    As I have been told repeatedly, “we are not a reporting agency”.

    Does anybody else have similar issues? Are they allowed to be discussed here ?

    This list is just a start… Feel free to discuss the web-related topics that mean the most to you. Yes, you can talk about data sharing, and any hurdles you are having…

    We should probably post this somewhere, but here are some general user rules:

    User Rules: We encourage your comments, ideas, and concerns and different points of view. However, we reserve the right to delete:

    -violent, obscene, profane, hateful, or racist comments
    -comments that threaten or defame any person or organization
    -solicitations, advertisements, or endorsements of any financial, commercial or non-governmental agency
    -comments that suggest or encourage illegal activity
    -multiple successive off-topic posts by a single user
    -repetitive posts copied and pasted by multiple users

    Be kind!

    Okey-dokey. I think I got it. And I would like to think that I can easily stay within those rules…

    Hey, question though: Is there a tool that allows WPMU to use the sort of quickie codes that /. uses for the slashdot CMS ?

  4. "Surf Rider"

    Any chance of adding a WPMU category to the CMS list? I’ve spent a few years learning my PHP chops on WordPress and have a few tricks to share that might be useful for other WordPress admins/coders.

    Also I, um, noticed we’re using it here. :)

    Nice tool, huh?

    With the open initiative would it be possible to get access to the survey you did on the last WUG meeting and maybe even put the results up here?

    I am glad to see that you have come up with this idea of sharing. I believe having different ideas put together could create something extraordinary and useful. However, are you limited to California residents only?

  7. Stacey Walker

    The blog is primarily for California government webmasters and web developers to use. They can author posts and make comments on other posts. However, we have opened this up for anyone to comment on the posts and share their ideas.
