When you want to send a message to another edgeryder

I have reason right now to contact an edgeryder person, user, etc. so I figureed I would search the name then click on the @name/thumb pic to that person's page and it would show me how to do that.  It does list a facebook page.  But since his email wasn't listed then he chose not to list it.  We can't make someone reveal it if they don't want to, but what if we had a box that says something like "Best way to reach me"?  

Groups

I found myself on this page:

https://edgeryders.eu/en/groups

and I couldn't remember how I got there and I couldn't figure out how to get there from somewhere else.  Does it automatically build a list of things for you based on the places where you've posted, or followed..?  And shouldn't it be listed on the Community Menu?  I thought also that it might be on my own user page as in "your groups" or something like that.  Anyway, groups.  Not that clear.  

A future tweak: group-based challenge responses for better analytics

(Putting this here for future projects. No action required, but please @Matthias and @Nadia read)

We have been using the challenge response format for over a year now. It works quite well. But it has a problem: since challenge responses are not part of groups, they are harder to parse between those that belong to different projects. We use parsing to two ends:

RSS feed for all challenge responses in opencare?

Request from opencare partners who are launching new call for stories and would like to better filter website content for newcomers. 

"I noticed that on the channel there is an Rss feed (see at the bottom here: https://edgeryders.eu/en/channels/hacking-and-making

From what I understood the channels are like tags: therefore a post can be listed in more than one of these channels here:

On the importance of a weblayout checkup

Hi, since ER is the platform for OpenCare and related OpenAndChange I think the issues of Responsiveness and Accessibility (as of W3C) should be taken very serious.

I know that US instituions are OBLIGED to adhere to Accessibility requirements, it would be a pitty risk 100M grant on such a detail.

If I can ill be happy to contribute

Fix that the first opencare challenge now leads to the open&change application process

From here: https://edgeryders.eu/en/op3ncare/helping-one-another-to-discover-what-is

Clicking on the ongoing challenge, "how do you give or receive care?", you are taken here: https://edgeryders.eu/en/how-do-you-give-and-recieve-care

Notice the openandchange application chain on top of the page. 

Clicking on any other challenge obtains the same result. 

 

Heads up: reforming the Edgeryders menu structure

Now that we have a shiny new navigation system, we can tidy up our navigation. Nadia thinks this is better done sooner than later, given that our new clients will be checking in.

We have noticed that we constantly find ourselves having to explain that Edgeryders is both a community and a company. So, I propose we reform the menu as follows. We will have only three top-level items (+ featured projects).

Heads up: new Ethnographer role, content managers and site admins can no longer see and add annotations

Alberto's picture

OpenEthnographer introduces a long delay in loading pages (only for users with the relevant privileges). While we wait for a more permanent solution, we have adopted a workaround. Its implications are that users with content manager and site admin privileges can no longer see or create OE annotations, and can not see the OE sidebar. 

No documents have been added to this group.

Upgrade to latest upstream (3.32)

Site is running commons-7.x-3.12, while the latest commons on BOA is 7.x-3.32. It is desirable to bring it to this level and revert the features to the extent possible, so that there is a clean starting point for further developments. Feature overrides are need to be made for needed features that have been reverted. These have been aggregated into the edgerrides feature (with some exceptions which are not supported, such as nodes panelizer settings)

Theming and navigation

As part of the improvements on the Edgeryders community site, the theming of the site was simplified, especially through:

  • a subtheme of commons_origin > commons_edge
  • the navbar as the central module for rendering themeable, modern and responsive navigation

The commons_origins module is based on adaptivetheme.
There are several CSS customizations made at the UI level using the CSS Injector module.

Project Ark – saving Edgeryders from the email notification deluge. Making a newsletter + digest

The Newsletter + Daily Digest is meant to be sent dailt (d'oh) and consist of two parts:

  1. an editorialized part with interesting or featured content (like #countonme list)
  2. a digest of new content created in groups the user follows.

The editorialized part is implemented with the following components:

Edgeryder 2.0 Development Session

This document records the outcome of the session on developing the new Edgeryders platform held at LOTE2. The idea was to learn from the ER experience in 2011-2012 and get move on. 

Part 1: Feature Collection

One list what you would like to see. Add a percentage that represents the priority (like this German hacker touch)

Creating edgeryders.eu e-mail addresses

We can create e-mail addresses of the form address@edgeryders.eu. This is used for communications of the Edgeryders company (our social enterprise), but we can also provide such addresses for community projects which are in some way officially backed and supported by the Edgeryders social enterprise.

Here's how to create such addresses.
