Re: Are the community wikis a success?
I'm distro agnostic, but try to use the Ubuntu wiki when it isn't out of date (usually it says it is out of date when that is true). Next I try to point to Ubuntu friendly references in my responses.
Then there are answers that I've posted on my personal blog. If the issue is exactly about what I've written up and I know the solution is correct, I'll link to my blog article - it doesn't have any ads and I don't get anything besides satisfaction of helping others. ZERO money. Actually, it sucks money from me if more people visit ... sorta a disincentive to share.
The most popular questions that I see seem to be solved by:
* Samba Setup Guide
* NFS Setup Guide
* Sound TroubleShooting
* Boot-Repair / BootInfoScript
* Blank Screen Trouble Shooter
* mdadm Guide (does NOT exist), but there is a HowTo in the forums.
These are in the Ubuntu wikis. Of course, I tend to see those sorts of questions, so it is self-selecting. Often, people seeking answers don't know the best search terms, so they do not find the pages that ARE available.

When you find the solution, please come back to this thread, explain the solution, and mark it SOLVED to help the next guy.
