    @channel Hi folks, what would be the top prio things to fix on https://africarxiv.github.io/ ?
    I notice that we are now having .html files in the github repo (https://github.com/AfricArxiv/africarxiv.github.io). While that works fine, it should also be possible to just write in markdown, in .md files, and have GitHub convert the pages automatically when saving.
    Not a big deal though. Just if we get a lot of changes, markdown is a little easier to edit.

    Hi Samuel
    I didn't know before we can change the extension of the pages on GitHub ?
    Do you know how fix it ?

    Hi @JustinyAhin (sorry, was away from keyboard for a while)

    I think one can change the filenames like in the image ablve
    One can actually keep the HTML in the pages to start with, and when we want, we can convert some of it to Markdown, which is a much simpler format (https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown)

    I can make a try on one of the pages if you want.

    Hi there, could you start working on the issues? https://github.com/AfricArxiv/africarxiv.github.io/issues
    @samuell just chose one or two of your preference.
    also feel free to comment on any of the others
    Would be good to have the website up before the webinar

    Indeed!

    @johave Yep, will have a stab at this during the day today, and try to get some of these done. I'll assign myself to the relevant issue before starting work on it.

    I'm unsure about the correct LinkedIn profile for the following folks:

    Anybody has correct links to them?

    @JustinyAhin I did an experiment with renaming the pages to .md at https://africarxiv.github.io/contact_us_mdtest.html ... but it didn't turn out well. It seems then we have to install our custom Jekyll theme somehow, to get our look.
    @JustinyAhin So, I suggest that we go back to just using plain .html as we did from the start. At least for now.

    @johav Something to share from the AfricArxiv account? :)

    @johav
    yeah, it's a good one. We can share it on our website

    @samuell
    Do you guys use LastPass? ( https://lastpass.com ?)
    Then I could easily share the login details to the MailChimp account.
    What is AfricArxiv's physical address?

    I guess it would be c/o @JustinyAhin or @johav 's post address, right?
    I'll just put in my address for now, to get things started, but please provide me with input on this, and I'll update later.
    johave
    @johav
    thanks :)
    We chose Justin's address:

    Hi all
    I just added a new issue on AfricArxiv repo on Github
    About the things we can do now
    You can look at it and add or modify it
    Also you can add your name in front of a task you think you can start doing

    Quick status update from me is that we landed in Stockholm now, but are still kinda busy with various aftermaths of the house move from Uppsala + dissertation + new job etc, and still kinda exhausted, but things are slowly getting better.

    For the last paper accepted on africarxiv (today's one), the author did not put the title of the article, but rather his own and the one of the co-author in the form author1_author2.
    Since it has already been accepted, should we reject it again by asking the author to change the title?
    I can't find his email address, otherwise we could send him an email directly.
    johave
    @johav
    Hi Justin, I added a note (accept with notificaton) and asked the authors to add the title in the form - hope they will do that til tomorrow - otherwise we procede as you suggest I guess, or try to contact them via email
    Justin Sègbédji Ahinon
    @JustinyAhin
    ok, nice
    Samuel Lampa
    @samuell
    Hi, oops ... it was all sorted out now, right?
    johave
    @johav
    Yes :)
    On another note - we need to check into licences. many of the submissions seem to have unopen licenses adopted. Can you look into that and we plan how to address the others to correct that? @samuell
