Bigger tasks

This section is to break down big jobs into more easily digested chunks if you want to.

  • Wooden, wall mounted donation boxes.

Website and wiki maintenance

  • Make google events calendar more used/widely known
  • Combine Nottinghack flickr stream and group?
  • We are creating a featured pages category on the wiki, so our best and most important stuff is readable without wading through scruffier notes. This also helps highlight some big gaps that need documenting before we forget about stuff.
  • Improve photo of the hackspace entrance on front page (ideally take a photo of the front door on sunny day with welcoming/inviting people/gestures).
  • First in-last out/ building rules
