Wiki Report: Rather than continue to hijack the thread below, I wanted to update folks on the State of the Wiki. [more inside]

The biggest news is that there was a bug in Bad Behavior--an anti-spam extension--which locked users out from editing the wiki thinking that they were a blacklisted spammer. Bad Behavior had a fix for this on their website and I have implemented it. The other challenge was making the wiki look less borked to IE6/7 users (*sigh*). I played with the wiki version of the CSS and it seems to be better. I encourage every member to create an account and help make the Wiki better. By doing so we can help educate new and old members and hopefully help our community. If you have any questions please email me rickscully @ the popular search engine that begins with G's email server.

Terrapin, if you run into any IE bugs that you just can't fix, drop me an email.

Thanks, DJE. This was just a CSS cell shading thing. Nothing mission critical, as they say :) You're welcome, hawkguy. It takes a village... errr ... sport community... so sign up and start adding or editing as you see fit. A good place to start is by adding oneself to the Members page.

Thanks for doing this, terp. I promise I'll do my part this time.

I love our annual State of the Wiki address.

I just added a great deal more detail to the section on Internet Chat. Hopefully this will help people get connected more easily. Well, to the IRC channel at least. The Campfire is very easy to use.

terrapin, if there is something that needs added or editted, just let me know. I am off work for quite a while now. The boredom is a killer.

I can't immediately think of anything, jojo. I have spent the last 5 months or doing what is there now... well, with help from some other members. The idea of a wiki is to tap the brains of the community. I am sure there is stuff missing, but it will require other people to think of things! I am brain dead.

Well if the Pantheon or you think of anything, just let me know. If I haven't done it before, I can figure it out or I'll ask!
