    Just to save some of the workload until later, don't worry about doing profiles for UN Organisations (UNEP, World Bank etc.). The positions are up for review and some might be removed altogether.

    A great job so far!

        It's all up now

        Descriptions are coming along nicely - we're up to date on the wiki so far, and I'm now working my way through getting them all formatted so they look nice and pretty.

          That's great - no pressure to get them done quickly so get your exams out the way first

          Don't worry, the formatting people send us by PM won't transfer to the wiki anyway. The info you put was excellent!

          It might be worth formatting them though because they look a bit dreary at the moment and we want to make them eye catching to appeal to new members. Hopefully I'll start writing mine on Wednesday. It might be worthy cataloguing them as well because there doesn't seem to be an easy way to reach them at the moment.

          I'm working my way through them, getting them looking pretty. Feel free to have a go with them if you like as well.

          I'm happy to work on the cataloguing front first and foremost and then developing a template for editing after that. How does that sound? If you could provide a list of countries that you've got so far, that would be helpful.

          I'll go to that when I need cheering up
          I usually go to the Recycle Bin and cringe at what I have written.

          Nice one, thanks for getting them up on there. A pretty boring job to say the least!

          Yeah I'm really glad too - it is up to the inactive members now to come online and write there's. Is it worth me doing one final PM on this?

          Wiki formatting can be oddly.... therapeutic.

          I'm hoping to get this project completed by the end of June so that all MUN positions have good descriptions on the wiki.

          Please can people head here to have a look at outstanding descriptions and PM me the following:
          *Intro to the country/position
          *Allies/Enemies
          *Fun facts
          *Political philosophy
          *Useful news sources

          Once exams are over, hopefully we can crack on with getting the descriptions completed. Don't worry about formatting the descriptions you send in.
