Hello folks

I have worked in the last week to bring up the Geekzone Wiki, hoping we can make it a repository of technology knowledge with a local flavour.

Being a Wiki, community involvement is important - I am asking for volunteers who would like to have Editor rights on this Wiki, being able to modify pages, add pages, introduce topics, etc.

We also have a Geekzone Private Forum to discuss the Wiki directions so anyone involved will have access to that forum.

Although I'd love to have everyone on boad, I will screen requests for editors - the more the best but I'd like you to understand we are looking for people who can write about the topics while being impartial.

The Wiki does have a discussion feature for each page and everyone (users and editors) are welcome to discuss each page's topic.

If you are interested please contact me. As I said, the more the best!

I could put some stuff up about the Australasian Roomba model we have. Should that go under Mobile Devices or a new section?

Is the Wiki supposed to be just for technical support type-issues, or tech knowledge in general? I know quite a bit about the NZ RDS TMC system that came online last year (that's traffic on radio for those who don't know the acronyms).

The wiki could explain what it means :)

All the software development stuff probably wouldn't be useful, but we could do a guide on how to setup Windows 7 Media Centre, MediaPortal, GB-PVR etc for use with Freeview in NZ, and maybe a comparison.

Might be worth considering giving editing rights (by default) to everyone who is trusted or trusted + subscriber or something like that.

We might do this in the future, but for now it's a separate database.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that... The interwebs are far more interesting that doing work anyway!

Just tried creating a Wiki account and got the error "Invalid Password". Is this a bug or is there a security requirement that's not mentioned?
