Starting out

Per Denis' I took a stab at expanding this. It seems like there might be two good ways to get this going:

  1. Start gathering info about where things stand now - what documentation exists, what processes exist, etc.
  2. Start brainstorming possible improvements and ideas on this talk page. Anything from redoing documentation to eliminating business contributions to adding "verified" badges to listings, etc.

To the second point, a couple ideas that occurred to me are making article status more prominent (perhaps revisiting Template:Title-icons and doing a bit more with those) and possibly implementing icons that could be added to listings such that a rollover would show users who "endorsed" the listing and when they did so, for example:

  • The Shiz, 1234 Shiz Street, +1-555-555-5555, [1]. With four fireplaces and a view of the Magic Mountains this place is great for a romantic evening, and the food, while pricey, is memorable. Endorsed by User:Wrh2 (24-Aug-2011)

The "endorsed" icon would obviously benefit greatly from using a template, should probably use something other than a star, and ideally should change the image depending on the number and freshness of the endorsements. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:49, 24 August 2011 (EDT)
