Suggestions for identifying possible content:

  • Think locally. What would help you support users of your site?
  • What do you wish you had at your finger tips to send to users in response to common questions?
  • Do you already have FAQs or canned answers you use?
  • Do you have a collection of sticky notes or scrawls in a notebook you have to search through for that script or tidbit of information you always seem to need?
  • Think about sharing scripts that can be cut and pasted by users or yourself.
  • Check out what others have suggested for their site. Is it something that could also apply with modification at your site?
