We're looking for people willing and able to write for our new wiki.

The wiki is currently completely empty and needs to be filled with useful information on the 3.0 version of Bodhi. If you're fluent in English and have an understanding of how 3.0 functions, or are willing to learn, or have something useful to contribute, or...

Leave a reply here if you're interested!



A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I'd be happy to help out. I'm not a computer whizz-kid, but I've written plenty of (published) books.

Yeah considering I wrote quite a bit of stuff for the old wiki and I can't help myself sometimes I probably will post a few wiki articles when I find time B)

Totally count me in. I've got a background as a systems admin & have done some technical writing. I'd love to contribute. I don't have versio 3.0 but I'm a quick study --- let me know how I can participate. Thanks

Sign me up.

You for one, aeonius, should know how pedantic I can be when it comes to writing. Expect me to proofread articles and maybe even adding a few.

Last time around we had a mailing-list, which didn't work out very well. Do you guys think it would be a good idea to have some way of communicating with others interested in documentation, or does the current channels (forum, irc) suffice?

Probably only 2 people know about irc as a support channel. The second, only because I told him to get online via the irc link at the top of the page. Make that 3, because I know Deepspeed uses it too.

I would love to help out in the wiki, but if it means registering yet another userid and setting up another password, i'll sign up later then

Well, that is why I'm asking, jazz. What means of communications do you prefer? And if the answer is the forum, let's have that as our offical communication channel! I'm all for including as many people as possible. :)

I can't say I'll be the most prolific writer, but if anybody needs a quick guide made up or I see something that needs adding in, I'll definitely be adding a few articles.

Send me a pm or email or whatever if you guys have anything specific you'd like me to write/edit.

I could write 1 or 2 wiki's too. I'm not such a big expert or IT guru, but could write something about hardware and problem solving as a novice user. I've been using Linux since 2007.

Glad to have you back, Timmy. As for communication, the wiki will have comments enabled, which means all wiki pages will have a thread linked to it, where editors can discuss the content of that page. I also think we'll have a "Doc Team Forum" when the time comes to discuss overall stuff. Maybe a team only one?


As for the way we're going to get this wiki started... I'm gonna give Garheade an account some time next week right now so he can test it. If he thinks it's functional enough, more people can get an account. The wiki won't be open to editing by the public, like the last one was, mainly to combat spam and guarantee quality content. Furthermore, Garheade will be taking the lead on how to go about filling it, so be nice to him. :P

Any thoughts/questions/worries/feedback?

Well, I'm ideologically opposed to not letting anyone create wiki accounts, but since I won't be doing the cleaning up of spam maybe I shouldn't argue too much about it. Doesn't wordpress have plugins to deal with that? I know that dealing with spam is quite easy in MediaWiki.

Edit: Oh and yeah, I don't think there's a conflict between letting anyone edit and having quality content. :)

Don't get me wrong, anyone that is willing to help out with the wiki is welcome to join (after the initial start up), but they will have to ask for an account as opposed to create one themselves. The wiki is still open to all, we're just adding a step to the registration progress. I hope this alleviates your concerns.

Basically as Joris said - creating a wiki will just involve human interaction.

Fair enough, seems like as good a way as any to combat spam. I don't really know what I imagined. :3

I would love to contribute, I have been using bodhi for over a year, and have fallen in love with it, so anyway I can help I will. English is my first language so very fluent in it.

Alright, after repeating the same set of instructions a few times, I might as well start adding it to the wiki. :lol: Sign me up.
