    OK then... so any comments about the "about the wiki" page?
    Other than "come help with the wiki" I don't have much to add....

    This is apparently what happens if you screw up trying to post something on the WIKI thingie. The dots were my attempt to erase it.

    I've seen several of these types of posts, which seem to be a common misunderstanding about how the WIKI area posting functions work. I would suggest it gets some redirection or in a few months, new posters to that section will have this type of (undeletable) post cluttering up the main forum.

    Good point Par... it confused the hell outta me for a few weeks too. Perhaps there's a way to make this function of the wiki a bit more intuitive.

    Maybe a Wiki link at the top of the page, along with the usual menu, would do the trick. Clicking it could produce a sub-menu of the various wiki’s on show.

    Just noticed! There IS such a link - at the bottom of this page. Needs to be a bit more prominent though?
