OK, here’s the separate post for the Supermeo Database Project. The reason it’s titled Supermemo and Beyond is because since they will be made into spreedsheet files they should be able to be used a number of different ways (like making physical cards, used in other programs, etc.)
Here’s my loose idea on how things could progress. Some people choose a topic/book to make cards for. Parts of the topic/book are assigned to each person. The person then works on the database from home. Then, when all the pieces are don, they are uploaded to Google Spreadsheets to be put together, then that file will be downloaded, converted and posted somewhere for all to see (a separate website?)
While on GS everyone can check the file for errors.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to find the original spreadsheet files for the Shida Book 1 and 2, but I probably don’t need them. I’d recommend completing the Shida series. Next book being Book 2 (下 .)
We would first have to agree on what fields go where and how things would be split up.
There’s me rough outline. How does that sound?
[quote=“scomargo”]Perhaps we need to make this a separate thread?
There’s two minor problems that I can see this project having:
- we need somebody in charge to manage the list of people that have read/edit access to the file.
- It’d be nice if we could have people contribute something before they get access so as to encourage people to work together. However, people would also need to know what is already there, so that they could know if there’s something they could contribute. I don’t know how this could be done, though.[/quote]
To #1 I think multiple people could be in charge of multiple projects (eventually.) I’ll be in charge of these Shida ones (and will only be in charge of one at a time) but if someone wanted to start on TLIs books right now, there you go.
That reminds me, I wouldn’t want to limit these to just Chinese. I’ll be starting my Taiwanese quest soon, so that will be a project I’ll want to complete.
To #2, I suppose it should eb up to the project leader to decide who does what. For the Shida books it would be easy to assign things chapter by chapter. It’d be harder for something more abstract, but I’m sure something could be figured out.
