    Adding new Quangos in Green font and most recent entries for appointments under individual quangos in Red font so that posters don't have to lose their eyesight peering at what will be a long list for latest entries. Honour roll at end of list for contributors and sources.

    An Bord Pleanála: Former Fianna Fail TD Brian Swift (Waterford) 1987-1989, solicitor, in second term as appointee which is due to finish December 2011. 2009 Annual Report does not give salary level for members of the Board but it is a salaried position and the Chairman earns between 220,000 and 240,000 which is tied to Judges' pay so you might take a ballpark guess for Board Members. The Members pay seems to be tied to senior PS rates but cannot confirm for sure at the moment.

    Quangos A-D Can you think of a Quasi-Non-Governmental Organisation we've left out? Or have you spotted a duplicate/error? Feedback most welcome. In tandem with this A-Z list our citizen-journalist colleague Munnkeyman is compiling a Wiki detailing such bodies broken down by relevant Government Department. Should you wish to contribute to the work either here or on the wiki (link below) whether it is a forgotten quango, appointment or a suggestion please feel free.

    The benefits of a rolling thread here to which other posters can contribute as they notice news of quango appointments were obvious in the band of people who contributed in fine fashion to the Dynasty Politics thread last year.

    I'm a little worried that if we work off on a wiki we might lose contributions available from posters here.

    Am I understanding the way wikis work correctly or am I simply not seeing a glaring advantage of wiki over forum thread?

    Anyway. I'll pile on today and will continue as I know there's a huge amount of data to handle but I think if I and some others can get to a stage where there might be a critical mass we might break the back of it over a few months and bring in a 'Jaccuse!' list hard enough on the heels of an election to focus people's minds on where FF tend to hibernate.

    Open to all suggestions and happy to work off the experience of others in presentation, approach and data gathering. Bear in mind though that I am but a simple seadog and do need the 'Janet and John' approach when it comes to newfangled media

    in the meantime I'll work on
    How about I do up the wiki in tandem with your list.
    The benefits to me would be

    • Listing each quango under their responsible Department.
    • Ability to add references and budget data for each quango.
    • An easy way to search for individuals.(to easily see who made the appointments.)

    By the beard of Harney Munnkeyman thats some hurling... maybe we can agree to run in tandem for a while until an overriding need to select one medium or another presents itself?

    I'll go through that list and bring in any I've left off my lot and then tidy up the info collected here in terms of colours and bold print etc and then resume tomorrow.

    Perhaps if both projects acknowledge eachother, are prominently linked to eachother and share information, on a rolling basis, they would be mutually of great benefit.

    They would maximise access to an awareness of the data. Some people prefer to contribute to a wiki, which has some advantages in presenting data, but by and large a forum is more accessible and can provide for discussion. Complementary approaches

    Cracker ... I'll bring in Munnkeyman's work here, tidy up and add a capsule of explanatory text and link to the Wiki.
    Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.

    I'll go through that list and bring in any I've left off my lot and then tidy up the info collected here in terms of colours and bold print etc and then resume tomorrow.
    I've bombed your thread, apologies.

    No problem with that at all.
    This wiki idea might be the death of me though.

    Its a monster job alright Munnkeyman but what I'm going to do is limit the time I spend on it per day. A few entries per day would crack it and I'm convinced if we get the work to a certain stage others might pile in ... trumpets on the wind and many hooves in the mountain passes and so on.

    If you feel under the cosh give us a shout and maybe we could do something like reverse each other's work or declare a public holiday for a day or two and return to it?

    No sense in killing ourselves against an arbitrary deadline and we'll get to the useful information for journos fairly soonish on this I'd say...

    Now its time I submit that we get out the Quango Hammer. I will kick off by searching for some resources which list quangos under whatever guise and I cordially invite both entries and suggestions for formatting the information.
    Thoughts -

    1. A global A-Z list is useful

    2. It's also useful to have a list under Departmental headings.

    3. It's important that the source and date of data is provided and a link provided to the source.

    Q. Do we have any info on the legislation under which these Quangos were established ? This might be something that the wiki could add.

    Would it make sense to compile the lists together here as a joint effort and then use the Wiki to add detail, like links to the legislation ?

    Spot on Captain.
    I'll try to get the bones of a Department ready each day on the wiki.
    With Annual reports etc. and budget information for the Quangos.
    Filler detail like references to new appointmentrs etc. from newspapers
    will be the last information I'll go for.

    I was thinking of that as one of the main reasons for a wiki.
    The information will definitely have to have named sources.
