Paul (and anyone else out there new to Flossary editing),

I was going to suggest you read all the past posts on this board for information that has been addressed previously, but I checked, and you said you already have.

So I'm thinking that this is one of those instances I spoke of earlier, in which once you are on the other side of the learning curve, you forget what you used to not know.

I'm wondering if some of the information that you appear to be missing on various points might not be in the Flossary itself?

You seem to be way farther up the knowledge scale than me about programming in general, and wiki-type stuff in particular. You'll no doubt understand everything much faster than I did by perusing all the help/editing/formatting/etc., pages that are there. It should answer some of your questions and musings.

One thing I found helpful in the beginning was to just look at several of the pages and open them in "edit" mode to see what was done. You can do this easily from the "Floss Randomly" selection or from looking at the "Recent edits."

Hope this is at least somewhat helpful in getting you up to speed. I'm looking forward to seeing your contributions.

Best regards,
