Shouldn't the little "R" in a circle appear in banner_text.gif and in the first text reference? funct


It would be nice if the SEARCH function were visible more toward the top of the main page, so that it would be easier to find when someone just viewed the main page --Hamer 11:45, 17 March 2008 (EDT)


How about putting CATEGORIES as a selection on the left menu?--Nancy 13:13, 17 March 2008 (EDT)


Since a Wiki is self-configurable (I mean that we the users can do what we want to it, without waiting for a webmaster to do it for us), that should mean that if we the users wish, we could impose a hierarcical structure on it in order to make it easier to navigate it, but of course, users would not have to use the hierarchary, but of course, gardners could move things around. --Hamer 15:51, 17 March 2008 (EDT)

About Category

I agree with Nancy in putting the 'category' item on the main menu. To find categories now, I looked at 'tool box-> special pages'. I'm not sure how one would update the main menu, so it may be something that admin folks can do. --CJ 15:44, 3 June 2008 (EDT)


Hi! I just am learning (stumbling) my way around. Hi Bob! Is there a way just to respond to you from here about the little "R" or is the way to respond the way I'm doing now with edit? A little bit of hand holding and then I will take off... Sally Muller.

This was answered/addressed on Where did Hamer go?‎. --Don Henderson 22:07, 17 March 2009 (EDT)


About Weekend Wiki Work/TIPs

I'm noticing that a daily tip was not available for today. . . . What about having a weekend wiki study assignment (HomeWork as it were.) For example here is one:

 Use the 'edit' on any Article-Page to see how the wiki language-controls are written.
 Look for examples of good page publishing and use 'edit' to see how it is done.

Some weekend wiki work (homework) could involve longer study assignments (for Fri-PM, Sat, and Sun.), from those that are doing so well assigned to eager students such as myself. Humbly, Charlie Shipp

Sounds good, Charlie! Use the 'submit a tip' process to submit your tip, and it can be scheduled.--Nancy 15:00, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
