List Formatting[edit]

My reason for formatting lists the way I did is basically that it lets each person manage their own sublist independent of the rest, this way there's no risk accidentally changing the total number of each item in a way that leaves the total less than what is actually needed. For instance, if we organized by item rather than by person, and someone needs to reduce their count, they have to be careful not to accidentally remove someone else's counts as well (especially if we didn't list who was requesting how many items). The coordinate can at the end build a total count for each different kind of item to place the order. Additionally, we might consider using a table/spreadsheet. Certainly this would be useful in the finale stages prior to ordering, tho possibly more irritating to use in a coordination page here on the wiki. Augur (talk) 18:35, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
