Hmm, maybe a FAQ section with all the questions and problems you frequently stumble upon when using betas, for example, the specific time required for the installation to succeed. Maybe we could compile all the dates we can get and put them there. And other FAQs. :)

I can give a hand with setting up the wiki if you like, I have set up MediaWiki software before. I am also willing to help with general maintenance and cleanup if needed.

Anyone, once registered, can post content, so if you feel the need to add anything go ahead. I just need someone to teach me how to set up half the stuff on it because there is no admin panel and the help documents are useless.

In reading the first post I was thinking along these same lines.
What's to stop the retards of the world from making it hard for
those who actually contribute and give a damn.
I noticed on the beta archive screenshots page that there's a
sign stating that due to abuse, the uploads of screen shots are
though Andy only.

I have made categories and cleaned the Main Page.
I can help with Wiki.

If you want to place article in category "Games", please add in article [[Category:Games]] tag. If you want to place in "Windows" - [[Category:Windows]] etc...

BTW, please, ban user "Turb0". He is destroying our work.
And please lock Main Page editing by non-registered users.

OK, Wiki officially sucks. Its too hard to be bothered with. Im going to install drupal and see what that is like as a wiki since it will probably be easier to administer and add content.
