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

Search function

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)

Hierarchical structure

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)

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

Employment opportunities

Please go to the Employment opportunities page to list any employment opportunities. If you list your employment opportunity here it will not be registered. - Cameron 22:21, 25 September 2012 (EDT)

PR/Advertizing at SAS Global Forum

It's been a while since a comment has been added here and so I have a suggestion. At a previous SGF there were some business cards with the logo and information. They had many uses at the SAS Global Forum and would be good to do again. I still have a few if someone wants me to FAX how they looked. -- Charlie Shipp (talk) 10:45, 22 February 2014 (CST)

I'm looking forward to the use of QR codes (Quick Response Codes) for speaker/user collaboration and info exchange. Lainie Hoverstad and Mary Rosenbloom are leading the technology at SGF 2014. Refer to and here on (you can take a look at Art Carpenter's TALK page for an example). Don Henderson makes including your QR code easy. -- There are over 35,000 'views' to this TALK page so more activity/info would be wise. Charlie Shipp (talk) 09:03, 23 February 2014 (CST)

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)
I have already made a start by moving several sections to users talk pages. Though it looks like an edit conflict has just undone some of the changes I have made here recently, so that might mean I need to repeat a little bit of work. - Cameron (talk) 02:51, 29 April 2017 (CDT)
