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)

Towards a tidy talk page

I think this talk page needs to be tidier. The page should be a discussion about the content of the Main Page, rather than a public forum.

  • Questions from users seeking help should be moved to the respective user's talk page if a response is provided, rather than being left here.
  • Users listing employment opportunities should be directed to list there instead.
  • Ideas, suggestions and general comments about the sasCommunity should be moved to a more relevant wiki page.
  • Old comments and discussion should be moved to an archive area once they are no longer relevant.
  • The remaining discussion(s) should be refactored.

Good points Cameron, you have the experience, would you like to take a stab at it? --Art Carpenter (talk) 02:35, 29 April 2017 (CDT)

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)


I'll work on it in my spare time; easy to do. -- Charlie Shipp (talk) 15:06, 23 June 2015 (CDT)
