* Integrated loco team help - how to start a loco team, etc
  * Maybe even automate it?
  * translations needed for this, so we should think of that too
  * static so that we can do translations
* Aggregate live LoCo news feeds
* Make a banner of random, pics on the main page or somewhere that shows people; can just be random like on summit
* Rss feed for a loco team tag - integrate planet-like feature into the loco directory
* Allow teams to add dynamic content to their teams page
* Make a feature for teams to do an after event 'report' or add images for events.

* Make LD spread the word about events, timely updates to social networks????
  * Similar to what Ubuntu Changes and Ubuntu Bugs do on identi.ca and twitter
  * Launchpad sends info to facebook to get people "living" there
 * ^^ not easy (pie in the face +1 +2),. also there are privacy concerns
    There is Code already, http://gitorious.org/tuno/tuno
    Privacy would be an issue when promoting public events? It's a public event...

* Don't want to replace loco team websites
* Don't want to hide/overshadow loco team websites
* Don't want to force teams to use the portal instead of the wiki or their own sites

We're discussing calling LD LoCo Team Portal instead of Loco Directory because of the kind of changes that we're having and we're no longer going to be a directory.
