I think it's great! To those who keep it current, keep up the good work!

And I'd vote option #4:
4. I think more n00bs should read it.

I totally agree (especially about Chapka!). I pitch in when I can and rather than writing up my kegerator conversion as a forum post I did it as a wiki article. I haven't had time to do much else with it.

The stubs are definitely a major issue. If we could get everyone to pitch in and fill in just one each we'd get rid of them all pretty much immediately though. In fact I think I'll make some time tonight and do a couple.

For those who have trouble finding information, maybe you could provide information on how you're looking (poking around, searching, trying random page names, etc.)? Maybe we need to re-organize the information to make it easier to find.

I've never really spent any time on or in the wiki, which I feel guilty about.

Does it need some sort of post count to turn your crank?


If nothing else we should be pointing newbs to the answers there instead reformulating them here.

Can't say I felt the need to poke around there, but you got my interest. I'll have to look.

Mostly just clicking around, honestly I have not spent much time on their, mainly because I can search here and find the anwser quicker.

The wiki gets very confused about my IP when I try to edit, so I don't.

Admittedly, I've fizzled out in the additions department but I vow to ramp up after I build my single tier system.
