    What are your thoughts on those two issues?

    1. How do we get people to work together? Your wiki seems like a great answer to that - but we need some marketing or outreach to other organisations and groups to get them to commit to collaborating too

    2. How do we structure the data well enough that it can easily custom rendered for different environments and applications? Mobile app, desktop app, etc. etc.

    Sounds like VeganWiki needs some Semantic Wiki stuff
    @balupton I don't now how technical you are, but have a look at https://www.semantic-mediawiki.org/

    @balupton we already have SMW set up on veganwiki
    it's just not very elaborated yet
    but we can do the same thing for other types of entities
    it's probably best to start with the obvious
    Mikael Korpela
    @simison
    Ah, cool. So if @balupton you wanna design a semantic structure for information you have, Kasper or me can then implement it?

    @guaka
    this page is also very useful http://veganwiki.info/en/Special:AdminLinks
    I'm gonna disable cloudflare now
    (because veganwiki.info/en/Anything shouldn't give me some silly CF page)
    http://veganwiki.info/en/Special:CreateClass is the best way to start new types of entities
    and yeah,
    ...@simison is right, it would be great if you can design some structures, @balupton, then I will implement the basics and we can work out the details from that

    Awesome. Will read up tomorrow. About to head to bed.

    Just went to add a new page for useful mobile applications, but there is no form type for that
    Only City, Country, Recipe, and Restaraunt
    We need one that is just "Page"
    or maybe we need one for "App"
    and then a "Page" that lists all the entries of "App" type
    We also need a "Person" type
    and a "Company" type
    Person field can be profession (Celebrity, Activist, Health Professional, Science Professional, Ethics Professional)
    Company can have vegan status (Vegan, Vegetarian, Veg-Friendly, Not Veg Friendly)
    As well as type (Store, Restaurant, Activist Group, Other)
    Benjamin Lupton
    @balupton
    Example Apps: Shop Ethical, Barnivore, Animal Ingredients
    Actually, rename Companies to Groups
    and kill the vegan status field and type field
    Example Groups: PETA, Animals Australia, Voiceless, Aussie Farms
    Example People: Jared Leto, Gary Yourofsky, John McDougal, Al Gore, Peter Singer
    Also another type for Movie; example movies: An Inconvenient Truth, Cowspiracy, Fat Sick Nearly Dead. Possible field license: (Free, Commercial)
    Also another type for Talk
    How do I get the ability to create new types?
    Mikael Korpela
    @simison
    Better not to clutter the wiki with too many types — most of the stuff can be handled via normal pages. Good questions to ask from oneself before creating one:
    • is there going to be loads of content for this type, or just a few pages?
    • does this type need to be listed under some other article (eg. shops at city pages)
    • are there enough semantic values to add to that template?
    Meanwhile there are still categories also.
    organisations/groups sound like there could be a template/form for them.

    @guaka user "Gabi" sent a msg trough FB that she didn't receive email confirmation
    I checked via http://trashwiki.org/en/Special:SpecialPages — can't see anything where I could check if her email was correct
    I'll PM you her email

    casualty of mandrill's policies...
    Mikael Korpela
    @simison
    oh okay
    can you click "resend" from Mandrill's control panel?
    or just copypaste the URL and I can send it to her email
