    @ Bashing-om, I know from BlinkinCat that you've made some very valuable contributions to NewDocs yourself!

    @Buntu Bunny, et al too;

    Me and my poor command of language, but this.
    I sincerely appreciate the fact that BlinknCat saw the need, the means to achieve it and the willingness to address that real need. As well, all those who have pitched in to help and continue to help.

    Keeping NewDocs current and applicable is such a great benefit to those of us using that resource. With ubuntu evolving so rapidly, it it often difficult to weed out what is no longer applicable . Not to diminish having relevant information all in one source, easily searched !

    In my formative time of becoming comfortable with this operating system I was all over the 'net -and any other resources I could lay my hands on - and was often confused with instruction that no longer applied - many many changes over the years and the ways to relate to this - our operating system of choice.

    If I could do more, I would .

    just my thoughts
    THE current(cy) in Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PopularPages

    Happy ubutu'n !

    I couldn't agree with you more!

    Well, if you ever find yourself with absolutely nothing to do, LOL, pick a page and scan through the links for old, tagged, or for unsupported versions. Every little bit helps.

    Hi all,

    As I haven't done this before on one post, I thought this was an opportune time to publicly acknowledge and thank

    those who have assisted in creating NewDocs, whether it be by word(s) of encouragement or by things such as

    inclusion in signatures. At present prior to publication, all new pages are vetted by others to ensure that NewDocs

    remains up to date. Any pages that presently shouldn't be included are there from my own inexperience.

    A big thank you goes to :

    Bashing-om

    CharlesA

    cortman

    Elfy

    Frogs Hair

    Habitual

    ibjsb4

    Irihapeti

    matt_symes

    MG&TL

    not found

    nothingspecial

    oldos2er

    QIII

    sef

    tgalati4

    Special thanks must go to Buntu Bunny and slickymaster who are the lifeblood of NewDocs.

    BTW if you haven't checked them out, those above with Wikis make interesting reading.

    If you wish to add any comments or you have anything to contribute to NewDocs, please feel free to do so at

    any time on this thread. We are always interested in people's view on the Wiki or offers of assistance.

    Cheers -

    I initially forgot to mention mörgæs who also was of considerable help in the early days of NewDocs.

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    Hi all,

    Today there were three Documentation Pages added to NewDocs.

    The three are :

    Rsync mirror

    SSO

    Ubuntu Guide

    There were 25 Pages removed as they already have Parent Pages.

    The running total of Documentation Pages on the Alterations To NewDocs Page is now 967 Pages.

    The number of Links listed on the Links page remains unchanged on 71.

    I would like to add that I inadvertently overlooked mörgæs in my thank-yous of a few days ago. In the early days of NewDocs he was of much assistance.

    Cheers -

    BlinkinCat.

    Hi all,

    We are indeed fortunate that knome has taken the time to have a look at NewDocs. As a result of his amendments NewDocs has been considerably improved.

    Have a look at NewDocs and see if you agree.

    Improvements :

    1. A much easier to read and therefore select Alphabetical Index.
    2. The Alphabetical Index appears at the top of every Page.
    3. The Alphabetic Index font size has been increased and thus making it easier to read.
    4. Sub-menu (Most popular pages) returns to Face-page from all Pages.



    On behalf of BlinkinCat, Buntu Bunny and all of our helpers, I would like to take the opportunity to thank knome for his assistance. We are all in agreement that the changes greatly enhance NewDocs and make it an even easier to use tool.

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    In our continuing effort to keep NewDocs an up to date and useful resource, I can report several recent updates.

    One new page was added


    Ten pages were deleted. Nine were subpages which can be accessed via another NewDocs listing (a parent page); the last was a duplicate.

    Two pages were moved to ToBeReviewed because they had not been edited in over 18 months.


    The current number of Documentation Pages is 958 plus a Page of 71 Links.

    Another update on NewDocs.

    With the idea of keeping NewDocs a tidy and useful primary resource, some clean up was made and 16 references were removed from the U page as they were sub-pages which can be accessed via another NewDocs listing (a parent page).

    The Joomla page has been moved to the ToBeReviewed page; the reason being the addition of the Unsupported and the NeedsUpdating tags to it.

    Five new pages were added to the Helpful Links page:
    1. An Awk Primer
    2. Awk
    3. Awk One-Liners Explained
    4. The Grymoire - home for UNIX wizards
    5. UbuntuHandbook

    One new page was added to the S page:
    1. Shimmer Project

    Two new pages were added to the X page:
    1. Xfce Desktop Environment
    2. Xubuntu website

    Finally the target url on the Troubleshooting page was replaced.

    The running total of Documentation pages was updated accordingly, in AlterationsToNewDocs page, and is now of 937 plus a Page of 76 Links.

    ANNOUNCEMENT

    On behalf of the NewDocs team, I am very pleased to announce the formation of a NewDocs Launchpad team.

    Our goal is that NewDocs is a user friendly and fast work resource, enabling users of all skill levels to find the information they need to become proficient with their operating system of choice.

    The purpose of the team is to keep NewDocs up to date and relevant to the Ubuntu community's needs. Toward that end, NewDocs is a subteam of the Ubuntu Documentation Contributors team, which comes under the umbrella of the Ubuntu Documentation Project Team.

    We invite you to come have a look at our new Launchpad page! We also invite you to consider joining us.
