Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sorry if this is a little bit meta, but I would like to pose a question about usability of this CDI wiki.


(1) What actually needs to be on the front page for maximum usability?

(2) How can collaboration area pages be (semi)-standardized in order to route people to the information they need? (find presentation, join mailing list)

(3) How do I figure out what people are actually using the wiki for?
