Efforts to make software easy to use for the un-initiated often have a long term cost that is paid by the
well-initiated. (Ever been frustrated by the Autotext feature in MS Word?) This wiki attempts to find a balance. It
is not instantly obvious to the new user how this wiki works, however, a small amount of time invested will
quickly pay dividends. This topic is designed to lead a person through a brief introduction in how to use this
site. Links from this page will provide more details if you care to learn a little more.
The important thing to notice about this site is that nearly everything here is "open content". Meaning, that you
add your own ideas to any topic in this site.
This wiki is a collection of [topics]. You are currently reading the "How to use this wiki" topic. Topics start out
small and grow as users add their knowledge to them. In this wiki you can:
- Edit any topic (click the ?edit? link in colored band on any page)
- Add topics (click the ?new topic? link, or see CreatingNewTopics? for additional options)
- See topics recently changed (click the RecentChanges link)
- See Alphabetical listing of topics (click the link in the menu band)
- Search topics: see the Jump To: text area in the menu
- Click on the topic title (at the very top of the page) to generate a back-reference list of pages that refer to this one.
