The near year is soon upon us. Much of what has happened in the past year we’ve covered on the wiki. We’ve only really done two year end round ups: sidewinder’s picks: The Top 10 Fannish Events of 2009 and Our history on Fan History in 2009. Aside from a summary of our most popular articles and top referrers for the year, we don’t really have anything else planned. We’re already beginning to look forward for 2010.
So we have a couple of new year’s resolutions that aren’t so much resolutions as goals. They are:
- Try to improve two articles a month to make them truly outstanding and informational.
- Do more work on preservation projects for sites that are threatened an endangered.
- Increase Fan History’s traffic to average 3,000 visitors a day by the end of 2010.
- Increase the number of contributors in an average two week period from 33 to 45.
- Hit the one million article mark.
- Get the wiki to be self funding.
We feel these are pretty reasonable goals. We know what we need to do to accomplish them. Any help that you can provide us though? We would very much appreciate it.
We have some other non-tangible goals that we hope to accomplish in 2010 too. They include reaching out more to the fan community, improving our relations with the wiki community, improving more articles, getting more statistical data on the wiki, and possibly do a case study to see how we can improve our content and our effectiveness at completing our mission in the fan community. Those are much harder to measure but we’ll work at them.
