[edit] News policy RFC

I would like to see all news events added with relevant date in cronological order.

Stable versions should be left in bold and moved down the list until a new stable version is released.

Any other news should be removed when there isn't enough room, or it's no longer relevant. (eg remove "we had meeting" when metting reminder is posted, or remove alpha 1 announcement when alpha 2 is announced.

Any news that is worthy or historically interesting should also be added to News as well. Note that on the News page the version announcements point to the forum post and not NASA World Wind Download as on this page.

[edit] Link Text

Just a suggestion: I don't like, and never have, those [1] and [2] links. I think that under "More News" a brief link would be better, i.e. "Home" and "Forums" instead of "[1]" and "[2]", respectively. --5of0 19:18, 21 May 2005 (CDT)

  • I don't have a problem changing to it text, but I don't like the idea of having one say "Home" which implies that the users shouldn't consider the wiki their main source. Possible changes include:
    1. finding different text to use
    2. removeing that one link, since it's basically a duplication of that news
    3. creating a news page and include all the stuff from nasa.gov plus maybe the press page, and have the two links on that page
thoughts?

  • I created another page for the news, and those links have moved to that page.

[edit] Introduction to NASA World Wind

Is Intro to NASA World Wind going to come back in wiki format? Has Dan Sanders expressed interest? --Jessi 01:02, 24 May 2005 (CDT)

Dan has said that we can wikifi his document as we please. He also stated that he would not be working on it anymore unless there is a Mac/Linux port made. Section 1 is in World Wind Users Document. Section 3 of the document is now WMS, section 4 is Rapid Fire MODIS, 5 is Key chart. That leaves section 2 to be moved into the users guide, walkthrough, etc. It's on my list.  :-) --Nosilleg 03:06, 24 May 2005 (CDT)
Great! --Jessi 03:11, 24 May 2005 (CDT)
2.3.4 & 2.3.5 are Place Finder --Nosilleg 10:10, 25 May 2005 (CDT)

[edit] RSS Feed

Any chance of getting an RSS feed for this site, so I can keep up with it?

There is... Recent changes: rss, atom. More feeds

[edit] Request

Can we have a Plug-in: namespace added?

[edit] Is this a Microsoft Windows program?

It doesn't say anywhere, just guessing from the ".exe" extension.

Anywhere at all, you sure? Well, you can find it in release notes (fom the Download page), it is mentioned several times in the FAQ ("World Wind is open source Windows software" and system requirements).
