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
  2. Why are uploads enabled?
    • 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?
    • ?
    • A 'how to edit' (wiki notation) and a style guide would be nice... Although the 'style guide' would really be 'look at another page in the same section, copy-paste the editing, and delete the information in the article and keep the structure' :P - Malkin86 15:09, 3 February 2006 (EST)
  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)
        • It can be done easily enough by adding a Category:Stubs to the Template:Stub. Changing the template should change all the pages with the template to be in the stubs category. - Malkin86 15:09, 3 February 2006 (EST)
  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)
    • 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. WW
