 082312@2100hrsEDT - I've created a hyperlink on the main page in the paragraph under the Help topic where it says "you must create an account"​. Hopefully, this will make it easier for folks to figure out how to register new accounts. ~vtel 082312@2100hrsEDT - I've created a hyperlink on the main page in the paragraph under the Help topic where it says "you must create an account"​.

 +I think it would be a good idea to add a link to the beginners_guide following this link:
 +  * [[slackware:​slackpkg|Update your new system]]: Configure and use slackpkg.
 +Like so:
 +  * [[slackware:​beginners_guide|Beginners guide]]: Some post installtion consideration

 +>Thanks for this suggestion, Mario. Oh, I've moved your post to the bottom of the page (older at top - newer at bottom). Cheers! ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​nocturnal.slacker|V. T. Eric Layton]] 2012/09/13 15:18//

 +I've been wondering, if there is a good article (example: [[http://​www.slackwiki.com/​Building_A_Package|this guy]]) on some other site, do we simply create our own article and link to it as a source, or do we ask permission to move the article wholesale to the wiki?  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​jprzybylski|Jared Przybylski]] 2012/09/16 13:30//
 +
 +------
 +I am not in favour of copying whole articles into our wiki, except if the person doing the copying is also the author of the original article. You can use another article as the source or inspiration for your own article here, and if you are re-using parts of it, it is good practice to mention it in the **Sources** section. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/09/16 13:46//

 +I tried sending an email to the mailing-list twice this morning, but the connection failed. It was about Hazel'​s revisions. I missed those minor errors she corrected, maybe because I was used to Eric H.'s articles being so clear and easy to follow as far as the actual instructions are concerned, that minor flaws in his English were overlooked. So it's a good thing we've got Hazel on the team, for the benefit of both native and non-native English speakers/​authors/​editors. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​brianl|Brian Lawrence]] 2012/09/19 06:09//

 +VERY NICE!!! I like. :)  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​nocturnal.slacker|V. T. Eric Layton]] 2012/10/19 14:16//

 +>> Great stuff!!! Eric, are you planning to send an extended statistics pdf on a regular basis? It'd be interesting to have it, say, on a monthly basis. Thank you.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​sycamorex|Marcin Herda]] 2012/10/19 15:02//

 +Someone please fix the [[howtos:​multimedia:​start]] page, I could not figure out how to get the correct tags or to show the [[howtos:​multimedia:​htpc]] page... ​ [[wiki:​user:​arfon]] 2012/10/28 7:27pm
 +
 +>It looks like either your caching was off or alienbob fixed the issue with the multimedia page not picking up your article. The howto topic pages are just displaying all articles in their sub namespaces and your article is now appearing. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​mfillpot|Matthew Fillpot]] 2012/10/29 03:58//

 +>> I did not have to fix that page, it was OK. I fixed the **other** page, [[howtos:​multimedia:​htpc|howtos:​multimedia:​htpc]]. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/10/30 03:46//

 +> I received an email notification of an edit to the start page. I see that you reverted to a previous version to eliminate some SPAM. Has this been happening much? This is the only email notification of an edit that I've received in quite some time. ~[[wiki:​user:​nocturnal.slacker|V.T. Eric Layton]]
 +
 +I think you have an active email subscription to be notified of changes to the Start page. Click on "​manage subscriptions"​ at the top to verify. I do not have page subscriptions myself, so I did not receive an email, but I monitor the "​recent changes"​ instead. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2019/04/17 08:15 (UTC)//
 +
 +Yes, I am subscribed. I'll check my email'​s SPAM folder to see if notifications have been placed there in the past and correct this. Thanks! \\ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​nocturnal.slacker|V. T. Eric Layton]] 041719@1042hrsEDT
