One thing I think would be appreciated is a jobs page, where
Linux-related jobs can be advertised. Periodically, job offers are sent
to the ILUG list, but I'm sure that not all Linux-users read the list -
just the sad-arses like ourselves that have nothing else to do ;-)
Another thing might be to have a map showing where the various users
are, so beginners can ask for help setting up hardware if they need it.
We could use the Google maps API for this.
Also, the Events page is woefully out of date. Maybe it could be
updated? At the least, it should show potds, even if there are no large
expos or other stuffs.
I'd be willing to write the jobs page code. I've never worked with the
Google maps API before, so won't promise that, but it could be
interesting. Events? I live in the wilderness, so know nothing about
events... (and even when there /is/ an event, it's too far from me for
me to be even mildly interested)
As for the problem that articles are out of date - how about adding some
ratings boxes to each article, so people could vote that articles are
good/bad, relevant/out-of-date, etc. That way, articles could be ordered
using those numbers, so people that don't know what to start on (me)
could choose whatever's at the bottom of the list, and write a
replacement for it.
