Thanks for starting this, Eddy! I'm going to be revising and adding info to this shortly. --Torley Linden 18:22, 3 April 2007 (PDT)

Ideas for getting the word out about Office Hours?

First off, a precursor that I prefer using Talk/Discussion pages in reverse-chronological order (newest at the top), so that's why my question is here.

I just linked the Official Linden Blog's "Linden Village" stuff directly to the Office Hours page and am open to practical suggestions re: increasing awareness of Office Hours. In other words, where else should we (Linden Lab) be advertising them that we're not already? Any drop-dead easy places I should be advocating they be listed/linked to? Thanx. --Torley Linden 16:55, 11 December 2007 (PST)

reworking the Office Hours page to a table

At todays Open Source office hour it was mentioned, that this list here is only sorted by the hosts' names, not dates. If this page was reworked to a table (see SLDev_Resident_Names for an example) viewers of the page could easily sort by any column they'd like. Is this worth doing? It would require rewriting all the included bits, too, I guess, which might break their functionality when included at other places :-/

You could rewrite the functionality without breaking their current operation by using variables :-P

Could you give an example (or link to an existing one)?
/me still has to learn a lot about MediaWiki.

Gimme a bit, I'll put together a demo

ta-da
Only the base Office Hours template was altered, none of the Resident/Linden templates needed to be altered (with the exception of some Lindens who were using it wrong :-P)

wow :-D

As a further example of the flexibility of the new modifications, compare SL5B#Office_Hours with SL5B/Office_Hours.
You'll note that SL5B/Office_Hours is included in the main SL5B article, but due to the rendering mode variable, different wiki code is used to present the office hours.

Could you list the focus area of the Linden holding the talk, ie what do they do?

Could more office hours be held in the afternoon/evening?

It's great that Lindens are having office hours, but most of these hours are during the day on weekdays while people are at work and such. Could we get more office hours that are in the afternoon and evening? This would work out better for most people who do want to talk to Lindens but also have day jobs. Oz Spade 00:01, 1 May 2007 (PDT)
