Useful tips for using the Wiki...

You may also ask for certain features here, we will then create a FAQ, e .g. "how to add a table"?

N.B. It seems like the FireFox browser is not working properly for Previews (and other things I'm guessing...). I'm sure there are settings etc. that may sort this out... However, for ease of use it makes sense to use Chrome instead! --Martin Flink (talk) 13:46, 25 February 2015 (CET)

Each of us have user pages and discussion(talk) pages that are good for placing info in stasis and asking questions.The talk pages can be moved edited or changed by any of us. My user talk page is User_talk:GNBarnes

Thanks for setting this page up Geoffrey!

AND... Yes please for "how to add a table"... although I think I can guess by looking at the Task List... =D

For ease of access to the various contributors of suggestions and discussion items in here and elsewhere... and to keep structure in our discussions, there's a very handy Signature feature which also drops a link to "(talk)" with each other (via the talk pages). You can place a signature anywhere in your text, using the edit box tool bar (second last icon) or typing the code: two minus signs followed by four tildes. Your Name, (talk link) plus time and date then gets inserted at this point when you save your edits.
