Scioly.org Improvement Projects

Current/Ongoing

  1. Creating an application for the Test Exchange that organizes file attributes (e.g. event, tournament, year) and supports uploads, better search, and moderation (June 2018–Present)
  2. Creating an application for scheduling site-wide banners and adding support for banners across the site (September 2020–Present)
  3. Reviewing, redoing, and documenting Discord permissions for consistency across categories, channels, and roles (September 2019–Present)
  4. Server cleanup: updating code around the site to reference the same templates for consistency and easier maintenance; making the site experience more cohesive, e.g. referencing the same styling and navigation bar across all pages, making logins redirect to original application (September 2018–Present)
  5. Improving Scioly.org's social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (November 2016–Present)
  6. Running annual season "rollovers" (August 2017–Present)
  7. Editing the Wiki, focusing on page cleanups and creating missing pages such as Digital Structures and SkyCiv (February 2014–Present)
  8. Adding easter eggs around Scioly.org for fun (March 2020–Present)

Planned

  1. Reattempting to install Extension:VisualEditor for MediaWiki to the Scioly.org Wiki for a more beginner-friendly editing experience
  2. Improving site SEO and updating page meta tags so that social media thumbnails are page-specific, e.g. when linked in Facebook or Discord
  3. Rewriting SSSS to be a subapplication of the Test Exchange to carry over Test Exchange upgrades and allow easier SSSS file migration to the public Test Exchange (April 2021)
  4. Rewriting Prediction Contest (scioly.org/fantasy) with a more intuitive staff-end UI (e.g. setting events, tournaments, dates) and cached results for faster load times (April 2021)

Completed

  1. Improving site navigation by removing directories to broken applications, adding error pages, creating redundant links (e.g. wiki.scioly.org), and using more memorable names for applications (e.g. scioly.org/forums instead of scioly.org/phpBB3, scioly.org/wiki instead of scioly.org/MediaWiki) while retaining symbolic links for archival integrity (June 2017)
  2. Moving site rules to and writing policies at scioly.org/rules for clarity of expectations, administration transparency, and regulatory compliance (June 2017)
  3. Implementing Scioly.org branding guidelines and documenting fonts, logos, and colors at scioly.org/design
  4. Restyling the Scioly.org Forums for consistency with site-wide design (December 2016, September 2019)
  5. Redoing and documenting Scioly.org Forums permissions for consistency across subforums and user groups (March 2020)
  6. Recreating an application for Scioly Summer Study Session that supports year rollover and adding SSSS administrators/moderators (June 2017)
  7. Recreating the application for conducting Prediction Contests to revive the tradition (May 2018)
  8. Implementing reCAPTCHA, Forums permissions, and other spam-fighting measures (March 2020)
  9. Overseeing the Scioly.org Chat platform transition to Discord (May 2020–August 2020)
  10. Restyling the Scioly.org Wiki (Main Page and Vector theme CSS files) for mobile responsiveness and consistency with site-wide design (May 2020–August 2020)
  11. Writing an application to allow viewing the Open Bulletin Board (OBB) archives at scioly.org/obb (August 2020)
  12. Creating the Comprehensive Tournaments List at scioly.org/tournaments that references data from Module:State tournaments box on state pages (September 2020)
  13. Making Forums topic starter posts pull data directly from the Wiki to allow content to reflect future seasons and to minimize numbers of sources that need updating (September 2021)
