Past „Map“ Ideas
I think a map like this would be great. @Gien is thinking about a map like this for a while now and he has also a technical solution in mind. There have been also some ideas in the past to adapt this technical solution to our needs and make it work for OCSEdays. @Gien - what was the solution?
But if you think crowd map is a good tool, why not give it a try.
I also know, that @Silvia started to check all challenges and activities of the past years. So she might have some data relevant for the map idea.
Elegant Workflow Possible?
I think a project like this is a lot of work – setting it up and maintaining it! Or do you see an elegant workflow? Where could we place the map?
Better ways to document and connect are needed indeed
Documents analyzing OSCEdays. We asked to share challenges and documentation of local events on the forum. But we learned that this did not work really well. There is some stuff on the forum and on all the subpages of the earlier events on oscedays.org. We also sent out a document to local organizers last year asking them to collect and share some data about their events and sending the doc to us. Almost no-one did it.
We learned from that – that the Challenge Format and the creating a subpages is not working very well. This is the reason we switched to the ACTION concept (an ACTION includes always documentation in one step) and to a new signing up procedure that involves using the forum from day one.
This is the new try to get more documentation and therefor allow more fruitful connection across the globe.
But better ideas are always welcome and necessary. Maybe your map idea is this missing idea. Do you think it is?
How would you approach it?
We certainly have a way to reach out to all local organizers that have been involved.
