Important regular activities

  1. (Very important!) Write votes (and comments) on the main site by clicking on "create a vote". 1 vote every week would be very helpful
  2. Help to implement the decisions made, for example by writing to decision-makers and reporting on their responses. You can get an official mandate to do this by creating a "future vote" on the main website
  3. Comment on other people's initiatives (in particular new members) on the main site and related websites
  4. Write more detailed resolutions for the main website and for the SPOP initiative, like the resolution on Sudan at the 2007 ISFiT WPE
  5. Help to improve this wiki (also to prepare changes of the main page)
  6. Write something about yourself in your WPE profile
  7. Collect support for the general WPE project or for you personally by collecting signatures to increase the legitimacy of the project. This can be on paper or automatically on the main site. You can also use the "delegated voting" mechanism on the website to increase your personal voting power (see also phase 7 of the SPOP) . We will prepare a template text for this purpose, but will also try to find a mechanism to accept any other text you wrote yourself.
  8. Help us do the general organization of the project by your contribution to this list and/or to a more general business plan with deadlines and work divisions/responsibilities and/or to the the working group on general organization
  9. Help to prepare the next SPOP meeting, for example see the preparation of the October 2009 meeting
