I think that the Wiki needs updating, its very poorly organised, e.g. the Longhorn build informations, you shouldn't have to click on a build, and then a lab to get information on that build, it should just be on ONE page! Who agrees with me that we should update it?

Agreed. A wiki like the old ClassicBeta would be nice...

Erm, that format is there for a reason. It needs to be well organised, Longhorn has a lot of builds...

However, the Wiki is far from complete and anyone is free to help complete it as long as they stick to the current layout rules, such as WindowsVersion:Build:Lab

^^ i agree....to go through it all and reorganize it would be a tedious pain...

it has to stay simple, that way people can always find the info they require...after you visit a few times you would get the hang of where things can be found also...

I mean just put all the different ones from the labs on the build page, not all the builds on one page, i.e. http://wiki.betaarchive.co.uk/index.php ... ghorn:4074 go there and then you have to click on the lab, why not just put all the different versions from the labs on the build page?, Instead of WindowsVersion:Build:Lab it should be WindowsVersion:Build, most builds only come from one lab as well so its just using more space... (The whistler builds dont follow this neither)

Edit: Also WTF is this crap? http://wiki.betaarchive.co.uk/index.php?title=4.2BSD
See what I mean by waste of space...

How about you all stop bitching, go put some info into the empty pages then you can talk organisation, ok?

Why? There are multiple labs for a lot of builds, and that will only continue to increase in number. This makes for a much better organised wiki, and if you don't like it, either go contribute to another wiki or setup your own.
