Should education be one of the goals?

Promoting "contributing to a wiki" as a positive educational activity.
Should hosting servers be one of the goals?
Looking for servers and where to put them.
Should PR be one of the goals?

Should social events be one of the goals?

Structure group (I hesitate to say committee) - perhaps we can get a small group (3-5) of people interested in hashing out the details of WMA's structure together. They can go away and do all the research about what is the best format for us, bring back their conclusions by a certain date, everyone can offer their comments and then we can move forward. It just seems quite hard having 20 or more random people trying to find out info with no defined roles at the moment. FWIW, I am not interested in doing this at all :) --pfctdayelise 05:38, 14 April 2006 (UTC)[reply]

This sort of organisation might help to speed up the process of WMA, but we should still be open to suggestions at open meetings and make use of meta for discussion of this. A committee would be a good idea, as long as it isn't used to shut out anyone who wants to help or participate in the formation of this chapter. Angela 06:34, 14 April 2006 (UTC)[reply]
