A few notes:

1. How are we going to split up VCE and HSC?
• I'll create a separate front page for the VCE. Just stick with the HSC for now. - JK
• It is possible to spearate it with the groups like "HSC:maths" "VCE:maths" - JM
• Good question. I'll look into that. - JK
• Sorry Typo "Why aren't uploads enabled?" it would be useful to upload pictures. - JM
• Image uploads now enabled. - JK
3. Why don't maths equations work?
• They should now. - JK
• Test: $i, 3i+2, e^{i\pi/3},\ldots$
4. What are the biggest problems facing new users? How do we overcome them?
• ?
5. Scripts?
• Are there any scripts implemented that automatically go through and mark spelling and stubs etc? -JM
• Possibly. See Special:Maintenance. Might need a list of common misspellings (perhaps from Wikipedia). - JK
• Is it possible to have a special page that lists the stub pages? -jm1234567890 10-9-2005
• This might do what you want: Special:Shortpages - Lazarus 17-09-05
• But also for long pages that are no longer stubs and should have the tag removed... -jm1234567890 19-9-2005
• This doesn't seem easy to do (dynamically anyway). - Lazarus 05:27, 11 November 2005 (CST)
6. Time
• The time is set to January 29th presently. MedNez 03:19, 21 December 2005 (EST)
• Was a problem with our motherboard. Fixed. Lazarus 20:17, 21 December 2005 (EST)
7. What's this business about some wiki creators signing their names on the bottom of articles?--Pwaryuex 00:43, 3 February 2006 (EST)
• You can easily throw a timestamp at the bottom of an article. It's probably there to recognise that it's an user's original work. I put one at the bottom of a study guide I posted. Can be found here. I think they're kinda appropriate for users who submit guides/essays/etc. as they provide both some recognition and accountability (for the end user) against plagiarism. --nwatts 14:09, 3 February 2006 (EST)
8. I disagree with signing your name at the bottom though - what happens when someone comes a long and edits it (which they will, it's a wiki). And it looks messy.
