I think we need 'site news' so that there is a way for people to know about things specific to the wiki such as what does not work with the wiki's features, this in light of finding that the older Mozilla browsers have a fit when you want to use the editing features.  I'm doing this with a Firefox 2.0 browser, and Windows 2000 Professional, for example, and things like minimum system requirements, known issues with the site, technical workarounds in simple terms, etc., could be useful to other users or new users. Didn't see anything like this in the 'special pages' area.  JamesAnderson 23:06, 27 February 2008 (MST) :

The 'Special Pages' area is a built-in WikiMedia feature that is used to find things like orphaned pages and similar. This would be great info to put in the TechnicalSupport area.  It seems the WISIWIG editor is a pain, and confuses people. A reference to WikiMedia's Help:Editing may be in order.The Earl 08:59, 5 March 2008 (MST)

You can turn off the Rich Editor from the Misc tab on your preferences screen. That may help you with your browser problems. The Earl 09:02, 5 March 2008 (MST)

Thanks for the tips.  Agreed on the need to put some of the info I mentioned on the TechnicalSupport area too.  Thanks for the browser tip also.  JamesAnderson 13:59, 5 March 2008 (MST).
