succession tables

We should have a system to note predecessors and successors for entire councils similar to wikipedia Jonah 13:49, 27 February 2007 (EST)

I have added succession tables from 1980-present, we will need to apply this backwards Jonah 13:49, 27 February 2007 (EST)
ok so I ditched the tables and added the Council template back to the 14th E.C. (Jonah 00:20, 14 March 2007 (EDT))
What about linking these positions in the council template to the list of officer positions page? Also, maybe linkin the name to a bio page (such as will be linked from the officer page)?

Fresh was working on a Council Template, so I would wait on doing that, but yes eventually the Empowered Council pages should have each office linked to its own office page, and each officer holder linked to their bio page (Jonah 14:27, 14 March 2007 (EDT))

bio pages

do we want to get ambitious and start individual bio pages? If so we should probably keep it brief and come up with some criteria (chapter(s), offices held, induction date, photo, etc) Jonah 13:55, 27 February 2007 (EST)

notation system

We need a system to indicated resignations and interim appointments. Maybe footnotes with superscript indicators similar to wikipedia's use of references? For offices prior to 2002, initially I have just indicated dates next to the office holder names if they do not serve a full two year term. Jonah 13:59, 27 February 2007 (EST)

On the officer page you have listed below, there are notations used. (D) represents died in office. (A) represents Acting, which I assume is the same as interim. (*) represetns information unavailable. I suggest using ^ to represent resignation. We could also include footnotes if additional informaiton is necessary. Example would be Lisa who started as Senior VP. Put a subscript footnote next to her name to indicate she took over as Nat'l Pres. I'll fill out the officer pages and include these items so everyone can see what I mean. (--Duff 12:20, 14 March 2007 (EDT))

officer pages

Duff added individual office pages. An on going project will be to added officer info to the various pages. You can find the past officers here; (Jonah 00:23, 14 March 2007 (EDT))

Adding officer info would be great, just a short summary on the people (like the user pages that already exist for Fresh & others). --Duff 12:20, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
I meant just filling out the names of all the officiers, but bio pages would then be the next step. We might as well get in the habit of making everyone's proper name a link. (Jonah 12:45, 14 March 2007 (EDT))
I didn't do that, but I can go back and fix the pages I've done and have the names be linked for the other pages I write(--Duff 13:08, 14 March 2007 (EDT))

Clarifications, further research needed

We have quite a few offices and Council Members whom we need to find out more details about their time in office such as;
Hosey VPAD '98
Kordonowy Historian '77
missing SVP '28-29
Zalimeni SVP '83
Laundry SVP '93
Pabst SVP '93 (should be "A"?)
Pease President '31
(Jonah 00:53, 15 March 2007 (EDT))

I should note that my intent here (above) is that there are some missing notations such as Acting/Interim, or there is an "A" noted, but their predecessor has no notation about why they left office, death, resignation, etc.
  • Olsen Sec. '51 (why "A"?)
  • Williams Sec '36
  • Helm Treas. '89
  • Fernandez/Surasky '94-96
  • Pabst VPMD '93
This conversation is moving to the Projects page. (Jonah 14:22, 17 March 2007 (EDT))
