Organizing Media links

user:LauraGail67 Oct 8, 2011 2:46 pm

Currently it looks like these links are by date. It seems like it would be helpful to have the articles separated into general occupation articles (as in Wall Street and other cities), and those which focus primarily/exclusively on Boston. Anyone have an opinion on this?

I think that for now we should focus on articles mostly pertaining to OccupyBoston because that is a more manageable project.

And then yes, a separate section for general occupation articles (although that will be a sea of info).

Hi folks, I just started the table with the external text. It seems there are others working on it too, now? Someone just added a commentary section. I just started doing this on my own. Should I not have?

I see there are a couple of image posts that should be transferred to the ext images section.

I had just looked over the list of links and tried to find a different way to group them and the why, who, what, and how idea came to me.

life_panels. Thanks for organizing. I sent a private message too. I think we should include a commentary section, but also create different tables by date.

This will facilitate editing/re-arranging the content in the cells of the table.

Hi, O_B I've been trying to do them by date as I put them into the categories but I'm having a hard time time getting each post to embed into the cell I'm pointing it to.

I do like the commentary section idea, too.

Quick question, what does 'post' mean? Why did you choose to go away from the why, what, how categories?

It looks great, By the way.

I wasn't sure how to label the links that are posted. You can change it if you'd like. Articles? Stories? Links?

I could still do the why what and how categories, but I thought it would make the tables too spread out and leave too many cells empty.

I have a couple of links to straighten out but I'm bushed! I'll come back tomorrow and fix them. If you'd like I can help with more on this site tomorrow.

Have a good night.

Looks great! What would be going into the "commentary" cell? Would that be tags or a note as to what the general thrust of the article is? (supportive/mocking/critical)

I think we should get rid of commentary, actually. There isn't enough article. And let's change it to 'articles.'

Great work, life_panels! Thanks you.

Good morning, folks, There are still image articles at the bottom of the page. Should there be another section under media for Ext. Photography?

re: Organizing Media links

user:Occupy_Boston Oct 9, 2011 10:08 pm

Yes. The Ext. Photography should be photography by traditional media organizations with the subject matter being solely Occupy Boston.
