    There's hundreds of individual pages on the wiki. If there is something in particular that needs adding sing out.
    All the posts are done on a volunteer basis and Ryan is probably responsible for about 90% of them these days. This year only about 5 individual people have edited the wiki. Anyone with 50 posts or more on ACL can edit the wiki. By my estimates there are about 200 ACL members with the posts to be able to edit the wiki.
    I personally pop up info on my own boards and have added info on the minis, dc controllers, strobes, a couple of Ray Wu boards, data sheets and other various bits and pieces.

    Ryan just pointed out that it's 50 posts not the 100 I thought it was.

    most members here have access to be able to edit the wiki pages so please do. The more people adding info the better.

    Just as this "hobby" is dynamic, as in ever changing, so should be the information pertaining to it. The wiki is a great place to find just such info.


    For those of us that don't contribute posts as often as others (mainly finding myself in the "follower" role), if we did wish to do so, who should we send our submissions to for review and inclusion?

    There's a few of us that a do a fair bit of wiki editing and it's probably best if wiki info was sent to the person who created a given wiki page or was most responsible for editing it. For the sake of ease any info or requests could either come to me or be popped in this post and I can pass it on from there. Where I see info on just about any topic that I know something about I'm willing to add it to the wiki. My knowledge on a lot of subjects is lacking however and my wiki formatting skills are pretty ordinary. Fortunately Ryan has added a bit more info to https://auschristmaslighting.com/wiki/Help:Editing-the-Wiki to allow people to format things better.
    If you have more than 50 posts on ACL then you can log into the wiki with your same user and pass and make changes. If you are a guru on a topic and haven't go50 posts you can get permission to edit the wiki from Ryan or Phil. Using the preview is something I do a lot as there are a few strange things that occur if you put spaces at the start of paragraphs etc. The preview also lets you see what things like == and * does.

    I don't know if I'll ever reach '50 posts'. At least, not 50 'intelligent' posts.


    Thanks.

    First Gerry has to install FPP on my BBB for me so that then I will be able to play with FPP, BBB and soon some P10's. Then I will be able to put some firsthand knowledge of my own in the wiki.
