 +Knowledge is power. Scattered and unfocused power is useless. To state it plainly, the vision and the ultimate goal of the //Slackware Linux Documentation Project// is to become the primary worldwide resource for all Slackware related information. This is a lofty goal, indeed. However, there is confidence that venerable [[http://​slackware.com/​|Slackware Linux]], the oldest actively maintained distribution of [[https://​www.gnu.org/​|GNU/​Linux]],​ has the user base to accomplish this goal. You are invited to [[http://​docs.slackware.com/​start?​do=register|join]] and be a partner in this endeavor.

 +Who can help? Anyone can, from your uncle Ed who tinkers with Slackware on his old laptop to Linux gurus with development level skill sets. All are welcome. All can [[slackdocs:​contributing|contribute]] something of value to this project. A wiki type resource such as this thrives on community. You've seen for yourselves what the GNU/Linux and [[http://​www.thefreedictionary.com/​open-source|Open Source]] communities have done in the past and are still doing today. Working together, the potential for success is greatly increased. 
 + 
 +This project will need article submissions that run the entire gamut of Slackware knowledge. There will be a need for serious technical articles on hardware control, software applications,​ Slackware Linux implementations ​in business and personal computing, system administration,​ etc. Articles will also be needed from the every day [[https://​www.linuxquestions.org/​questions/​slackware-14/​so-you-want-to-be-a-slacker-what-do-i-do-next-644746/​|Slacker]] on topics ranging from simple howtos to complicated resolutions and workarounds.  
 + 
 +Submitted articles, as with most wiki type resources, will be peer reviewed. Corrections may be needed, amendments added, and so forth. No article should be deemed unimportant. If it has relevance to Slackware Linux and will assist someone somewhere to better utilize this operating system, then it is a worthwhile article. What is being done here is being done for others. This is an archive ​of knowledge being built for the futureYour participation will be the mortar that holds the bricks in place. 
 + 
 +In order to fulfill the goals of this project, a reliance on civil discourse and the presence of a strong spirit of cooperation will be necessary. The rules here are simple. Be kind and considerate in your dealings with others. This project is not about individuals. It's about a community sharing and working together toward a goal. Your ego will not be a part of the //Slackware Linux Documentation Project//. Please leave it in the coat closet by the front door before you login.

 +That is the our contract with one another and with the future.

 To the left of the page you will find a sidebar with several boxes which can be edited (by the admins). Only the "​toolbox"​ box is part of the wiki's //​[[https://​www.dokuwiki.org/​template:​monobook | monobook]]//​ template, and can not be modified. More specifically,​modifying the content of that toolbox would make future upgrades a pain. \\ If you have suggestions about entries which should absolutely be in one of those boxes, let us know (use the [[talk:​slackdocs:​news|discussion page]]). To the left of the page you will find a sidebar with several boxes which can be edited (by the admins).
