  1. Maintain and improve our editorial quality standards

    make sure there are no inaccuracies, typos, etc. and an article is not too repetitive, long, etc. and html/media work properly, etc.; a similar level of expertise should be required to translators and each Lingua group should work also on quality assurance (even if in both cases, this is not always achievable, of course), because projects as Lingua are becoming a blueprint for the Net as a whole [this belongs better to the translation xchange-only wiki only, but... - bernardo.parrella]

  2. Work on bringing GV community together on and off-line to reinforce what and how we do.

  7. Planning for spring 2010 an e-book to celebrate 5 years of GV with a collection of "the best" posts

    and then an actual book in the style of worldchanging.com, with a US publisher first, and encouraging lingua people to translate and help in finding local publishers.

  10. Allow readers to send their own reports, which then we may publish if relevant

    The readers would become real citizen reporters and this would help Global Voices to get even more content. The stories submitted would still go through editors, as happens now.

  14. form committees to reach out to bloggers in countries from where we have no authors

    This would take the onus off of editors (many of whom do heavy recruiting) and allow volunteers to strategize together on recruiting.

  15. Give authors a code/tool (other than trackback) to paste as a comment to inform bloggers

    without the trackback option, that we have linked to them if possible - Amira

  17. Create an editorial committee to revive "The Global Voice", our internal newsletter

    In 2007 we produced four issues of a sometimes informative, often fun and always silly PDF format newsletter called "The Global Voice". Copies available at http://groups.google.com/group/GV-Authors/files/. Anyone interested in reviving it? If so, a good start to the discussion would be figuring out if there's a better alternative for distribution than PDF.
