I second that edit!

Good Call...
Thanks,

I still think Moderators don't need a moniter. I'ts a job and names tend to make it personal. I think Moderators would make good community members too if we could tell when they were wearing which hat.

Just a thought - might want to check that the people listed above are actually interested first. Because some of them certainly won't be!

I don't mind the idea of a project manager (or whatever you want to call it). But there should be an open selection process, and a mechanism for changing them, if it doesn't work out well.

Catz will you either decide to stay or at least stop wishing us farewell!! <grin>.

Glad to hear it p :If you visit I'll buy you a beer :)

One other thought on this project manager business: I suggest that the main role should be about facilitating community input and activity.

Put another way: The person should not be expected to carry all the work themselves, and nor should the position be about making unilateral decisions.

(Not having a go at anyone, its just that I already live in a military dictatorship!)

I've been lurking around XOOPS for several years. I only just registered because I'm seeing simple questions go unanswered because of redundant, and IMHO useless threads like this taking up the lion's share of the homepage.

But since we're on the topic of Project Managment, I'll comment based on my observations.

A single Project Manager will not work. We saw this with Herko. He tried, but the model didn't work, nor did the "Core Team/Management Team" model.

It's just my opinion as a lurker, but I would think that a model where a small group 3 or 5 members, each with a specific area of responsibility would work better. For example...

Have a manager of the following 5 areas of XOOPS:
Core
Addons
Community
Publicity
International

Those 5 would form a council or "Board of Directors" that ultimately has the final vote. Under each "Director" would be a team of peers who tasks could be delegated to.

Food for thought. For a project as old as this one, you would think you'd have all these details worked out by now.

A simple approach that might work. Can you elaborate on the International area? I'm not sure what would fit in there.
