Get a Life (www.dumgal.go v.uk/lia) Terra Buskerud (www.historiebok a.no) Moving Here (http://www.mov inghere.org.uk/ Tools need to be very simple and assume very little IT knowledge. Context-based tag technology (SINTEF) Get a Life is apparently on the intranet and not accessible from the Web? Build new systems which provide added functionality to those now available but hide this from the user.

- The Calimera Project is funded under the European Commission, IST Programme Solutions Noticeboard CALIMERA Solutions Noticeboard Front-end guidelines This document is meant to provide generic guidelines on how interfaces of the CALIMERA Solutions Noticeboard are to be presented. Please regard them as proposals on what is important to appear in each page; and feel free to adapt them to your current design, as well as the restrictions of your platform. Only elements related to the Noticeboard have been discussed; global navigation, footer and other key functions of the CALIMERA website have not been touched upon we assume that these elements will remain as are. Text that appears in such a format represents links to the corresponding directory pages (index or full story). I think most of them are self explanatory, but if you are in doubt, please contact me. Elements in a red frame are nice-to-haves, but in now way do they concern a functionality we cannot live without. So, if you have a problem implementing (system or time-wise) them, dont worry! Elements in a green frame represent links to anchors to elements on the bottom of the page. The wire-frames below are not exhaustive; you might need to create complementary templates. For example I have not specified forms for entering solutions or providers data. The current document deals only with the way information in the CALIMERA Solutions Noticeboard is presented. The previous specification document for the back-end database is still valid; indeed, it is with that specification as a reference that we have build the interfaces below. Homepage The featured solution is a randomly selected solution from the database (the above mentioned fields appear). Ideally, every time the page refreshes, the featured solution should change. Homepage for registered users (solution providers) A message box is not a necessity. However, a tool to prompt people that have not entered their data to do so is very important and will work wonders for the success of the Noticeboard. Solutions directory: first level I believe that the above directories are self-explanatory. Functional category is what on the specification document was called subject. If a directory has a large amount of sub-categories lets agree on a maximum number of sub-categories that gets displayed, lets say 7-8, then followed by dots (). The exact number is subject to our preferences and to the final design (size of fonts, etc). As far as the alphabetical directory is concerned, ideally the letter ranges should be created automatically so that categories are balanced. I understand that this is undoable in such short notice. Do you have any suggestions? Also, the most recently edited solution should appear. If this is not possible, then a random one, as in the homepage. Solutions directory: second level (on) Both the description and the expenses fields of the solution object need to be able to support formatted text, so that our users can divide their text into sections, use bold or italics, insert links, etc. Views from the field is a textual element that the Noticeboard moderator can edit, in order to pres
