FYI - might be something to consider at some point. It isn't really incident reporting or anything we currently have, but the idea of an electronic suggestion box is a good one and something that could be easily implemented.

Cheers Gav

Subject: [CrisisCommons] Possible Project?

I know everyone is probably busy with Pakistan, but there is a project
I think is important down here in Haiti.  I'm working with IOM
(International Organization for Migration) to put information kiosks
in various settlements and camps.  Part of the project is a suggestion
box.  They are getting back 100s of letters in Kreyol and French.  The
current plan is to read some of them on a daily radio show.  Long term
we think it would be great to get all of them scanned and translated
into as many languages as possible.

Is anyone interested setting this up?  I think maybe just a regular
wiki with the image attached would work, but I'm up for other
suggestions.

Thanks,

Kate

Hmm, I wonder if this would be appropriate for the GHC2010 codeathon...?

Something like (in likely order of importance):
-- Text data entry form
-- Allow defining topics; show posts per topic
-- Simple search in the body of posts (matched words)
-- Regexp search
-- Comment threads
-- Some form of importance rating (e.g. voting up or down)
