Documentation Guild maintains the wiki, signage and other NB info. 

We don't know how Noisebridge works either, but we'll write it down anyways

Making Noisebridge Less Cryptic[edit | edit source]

Noisebridge is cryptic at times. Most of the time, actually.

How does Noisebridge work? That is a damn fine question, but who really knows, eh?

The purpose of the Documentation Working Group is to encourage and maintain the documentation of Noisebridge.

Things we do[edit | edit source]

Special Wiki pages to find things to fix[edit | edit source]

Folks[edit | edit source]

Collaboration by all interested parties present and future is key here; not power-seeking control!
We the underhacked have pledged to contribute to the never-ending task of scribbling down things about Noisebridge:

  • User:Lxpk (Made the nav menu templates and tries to help guilds
  • User:Elan (Knows a LOT about advanced MediaWiki tech)
  • You!?

Previous Active Documenters[edit | edit source]

The Wiki is a collaborative work of numerous Noisebridgers and these fine Documenters helped organize it.

Collaboration[edit | edit source]

  • We talk about reducing the bus factor of Noisebridge.
  • #docs-wg on Slack
  • Probably some sort of regular gathering of documentation hackers?
  • Maybe even a monthly wiki sprint!

Projects[edit | edit source]

  • Signage is ongoing. Make/Suggest signs that should exist or changes to improve them.
  • Labels need to go directly on everything, whereas the sign may go next to it with more info.
  • Promotion group creates updated bulletins about things happening at the space and promotes them to the outside world.

In Progress[edit | edit source]

  • Hackstations (Kiosk enclosures for major tools/activity areas with attendant pegboard for attaching relevant bookshelves/supplies relevant and Signage elevated above it to make it easy to find with instructions for use.)
  • Phone Bell - An upstairs door bell using an old Stromberg Carlson phone.

Broken[edit | edit source]

Projects that need love to get working again.

Unfinished[edit | edit source]

  • NoiseFacts is an idea for a small printed version of the manual for new arrivals.

Upcoming Meeting[edit | edit source]

We are going to have another meeting soon to discuss printing/lasercutting/constructing kiosks for Signage, wiki docs, etc.

Meeting Notes[edit | edit source]

We meet sometimes. Here are some meeting notes

Taking care of our projects[edit | edit source]

Every wiki page that Docsbridge works on needs to be tagged with the following template:


This will ensure that it has the following notice at the bottom and that we can keep tabs on these pages and keep them in good working order.
