Talk:Reading/Multimedia/Communication guidelines

The way I would put #2 and #3 is, any mail communication involving multimedia-related issues should include either multimedia-l or multimedia-team in its address list, with the first being the default choice.

Sounds good, we could shorten it to one item then. Yes Done. --MarkTraceur (talk) 23:13, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Not sure about etherpad; it's great for simple things, but the commenting, versioning, multimedia etc. capabilities of Google Docs are far superior. There is nothing inherently intransparent in it either, you can make it fully public. (I would actually add that as another rule: barring good reasons to do otherwise, Google docs should be world-readable and world-commentable.) --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 23:02, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

I guess I would say it's also better to use tools on our infrastructure, and to follow WMF Guiding Principle #1 about free and open source tools - but at least adding the world-readable and world-commentable guidelines seems sane. Yes Done --MarkTraceur (talk) 23:13, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
How about using wiki pages where possible? A significant portion (not all) of uses of google docs or etherpad could just as easily (and sometimes be even more suitable) to using a wiki page. Bawolff (talk) 23:22, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
I would prefer that where it's not the real-time collaboration you're after - though I guess the "use a wiki" guideline could more easily be framed to include discussions...will change. --MarkTraceur (talk) 00:26, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
