Hi Jade and akabugeyes,

I am interested in helping with the SMF Online Manual. I could write some docs for mods as well as cool things to do with SMF. :)

I have registered on the OM and my username is brianjw.

I'd be interested in helping how I can.  I'm learning SMF, so I'm sure I can offer a novice perspective and can easily kinda "document my learning experience" as I go along.  So, I'll sign up and see what I can offer.

A few quick questions before I go off though, is there a wiki?  And, in dealing with my perspective, when people's questions are answered in the help thread, is there opportunity to include it into the manual or make the answer more obvious?  I feel that a good manual could be linked to answer most questions (a link to a specific section or such, not just a general link as no one likes to read an entire document to answer a simple question).  And, this kind of interface between the manual and the forums ensures better documentation and more volunteers. 
Everything is built from imagination.

Jade Elizabeth

Well those questions can be answered by looking at the Online Manual ;)
FAQ's

There are many FAQ questions that are in demand, however, there is no wiki.

Let me know what your username is on the Online Manual and I will add you to the Help Squad group :D.

I just signed up and will be emailing you shortly.  I do some web development as a hobby and have been using SMF for years.  I'm willing to volunteer some time but travel for a living so my time might be limited to "whenever I can", but that's what volunteering is for.

I'm hoping that there's a way to check on progress so that I'm not going over ground that others have covered.  I mean is there like a group leader who would assign specific review tasks and such who would tell me better where to go and what needs to be reviewed?  Anyway, I'll also post this in my email, I think SMF is great! 

Oh, also have a sandbox where I can test run SMF stuff if you also need someone to trial SMF goodies. Let me know!!!

Sent an email awhile back but have not received a response to it. Just wondering if it was received or not. 
Would love to help out if needed.

:)

Jade Elizabeth

Probably not, I would appreciate it if you would read my blog here: http://blogs.simplemachines.org/team/275357

If you contact me you can get fast access as I am on every day :). So send me the username you chose and I'll set you up right away :D.

In regards to a thread I started HERE it might be good to have instructions on how to start a forum from scratch. This could possibly make SMF extra $$ too. If you were to become affiliated with a host of some sort and include instructions through that host (similar to how I did with GD), then SMF could possibly make monthly affiliate $$ from this "From Scratch" instruction set by new members using the host suggested through your manual. I've just seen a lot of people in the forums asking about pre-install assistance and I think it would be very helpful for these members to have a place to reference.

I'm back now.

I was actually creating a site dedicated to that....but I had to push it to the back burner because the Online Manual needs attention for the moment :).

Are you still in need of help?

I am a total technomoron, so if you still need help and want someone to keep saying 'I don't understand that', then I am your woman...
