My little tweak to the index page a few minutes ago was actually
my first change ever to a wiki page, and I've probably only spent
100 minutes total reading wiki pages, so I have a sort of naive
perspective on this.
I have some questions:
* The index page recommends creating new pages at every opportunity.
But how do you create a page?
* Is there any way of systematically learning what pages exist?
Recent Changes looks like
* How is this archived, if at all? If some bozo comes in and
systematically scribbles all over it, can it be restored? (And
if your onsite hosting company goes out of business, or a freak
riverine tidal wave phenomenon drowns London, or a black hole
swallows the solar system?)
