To help us with this wiki, just choose a task below and put your name next to it. When you are finished, move the task to the finished tasks section at the bottom of the page. See also What you can do to promote solar cooking.
One-time tasks Edit
- Go through all of Solarcookingnut's videos and add as appropriate to Wiki articles (See Solarcookingnut.)
- Check each featured gallery on the Manufacturers and vendors page and make sure everyone is still in business.
- Write article about environmental benefits of solar cooking
- Change all links to Compendium parabolic cookers

- Go through SCI Digests and make sure there isn't something there that we missed.
- DONE Change Facebook and Twitter icons
- DONE Ask Dieter Seifert which parabolics to list on category page.
- DONE Rename HeadlineExt2 template.
- DONE Add verbiage to WAPI to indicate that water slowly heats and cools and is thus in kill zone for quite a time.
- Tighten up Canning article including some caveats for these issues: "We do not, and cannot recommend these canning procedures, even for fruits. I have never seen any heat penetration work published or referenced to know these procedures take care of target microorganisms for all different fruits and tomatoes. If it was this simple, we would have the same process time for every fruit, even in boiling water. Different foods and packs heat differently while processing in the canner. They are mis-interpreting "all you need is boiling temperature." The goal is not to just bring the syrup to boiling and stop heating. Plus, when syrups or liquids boil out of the jar, you run the risk of lids not sealing, since those surfaces which meet should be clean. Also, we set goals for desirable headspaces and evacuation of air from jars before sealing for good vacuums and quality during storage. Our recommendations do not include solar canning or the description you have provided."
- On many of our country pages we have links to Kiva partners in that country that do micro lending. We need to check each of these and make sure they are still valid Kiva partners and we need to add more newer partners or possibly just a link to all Kiva partners for that country. An example is here.
