Each committee, task force and team may have its own wikispace/forum or may work as part of the principal PIUG wikispace/forum, either within the main flow of the wiki or possibly as a sub-wiki/forum. Overall it would be better to keep open information within the main PIUG wikispace and keep closed or private wiki/forums separate. For example, the Board of Directors and Annual Conference Committee wikispaces have been set up separately from the main PIUG forum; they are listed on the Dashboard. On the other hand, I anticipate the Electronic Communications Committee forum will be within the main PIUG wikispace in order to encourage maximum and open participation; in other words, there is nothing that the ECC would do or say that isn't open to all wiki participants and no membership restrictions will be applied. I would anticipate that would be the case for the Patent Offices Committee, Membership Task Force and China Interest Group based on feedback to date. Each of these could have separate open Forum and separate sections in the main PIUG wikispace. All team leaders should consider the needs of your committee, task force, or team regarding open participation vs. closed membership and participation. I expect we will probably also have an option of PIUG-members-only if committee chairs want to limit membership to current, active PIUG members only.
Will we need a separate wikispace or subwiki for your team and controlled membership?
