How do the members of these projects communicate? Do you use the [[Web Forum|WebForum]]s, [[IRC]], whatnot? Do you have special channels there?
 
 
IIUC not all of these are "community projects" but more of the "stuff that helps with editing" kind. Should we keep all of them here? separated in two sections? as a new page/category? --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]

Revision as of 00:15, 26 March 2010

Somewhere in 2006 some Contributors have started to found small CommunityProjects around specialized areas. This helps people to coordinate their editing efforts and to find like minded editors and with knowledge in similar areas.

In fact such projects and joined efforts are the way to deal with the growth of both the community and the database. Feel free to contact, or join these groups, or found a new one!
