    Congratulations MG&TL on a splendid job. NewDocs Face-Page is now is now much more aesthetically appealing and lighter.

    Hi all,

    I am rather embarrassed to admit that my dismissive post # 52 in this thread was way

    off the mark. After consideration I eventually realized that Buntu Bunny's suggestion

    in post # 51 had plenty of merit.


    The User Documentation wiki is an ideal place for NewDocs to be located. After all,

    the name alone is at the heart of what NewDocs is all about. After a discussion

    with a number of the NewDocs supporters it was generally agreed that we should go

    ahead and include NewDocs in the wiki.


    The main wiki page is here User Documentation

    As for the positioning, it was decided to locate NewDocs as being listed at number 5

    beneath 6. See also.

    The message to be placed alongside NewDocs name is as suggested by slickymaster,

    being the same as on NewDoc's Face-page.

    Thanks go to Buntu Bunny for steering us in the right direction.

    I trust others will agree with the choice we have made in this matter.

    Cheers,

    Aw, shucks, BlinkinCat. I'm just glad to see it on the main page where it belongs.

    @ All;

    I have been absent for a while. Wow, how things change in just a few days ! Sure looks good. MG&TL 's work on the initial access page is impressive, look'n good.
    It is pleasing to see the level of interest present in making NewDocs informative and accessable. Hopefully, when things settle out with my installs I will be able to make my contributions to this effort.
    All the changes/additions are certain enhancement.

    It is a learning process.

    I think we all agree to the fact that the creation of the link in the Community Help Wiki main page was a crucial step to counteract a tendency of stagnation that NewDocs was starting to suffer from.

    But, IMHO, and because I consider NewDocs as a great resource tool for many users who are starting in the Ubuntu/Linux universe, and because I think that the more exposure it has the more useful it proves itself to be, I will dare to ask the forum administrators their opinion on the possibility of making a Sticky of NewDocs in the Absolute Beginners Section subforum, even if initially on a trial basis.

    The way I see it, it's to Absolute Beginners Section where these new Ubuntu/Linux users logically and initially first recur, and the existence of the sticky would be a good asset to help them to start learning on how to move on this new, to them, operating system.

    Excellent idea Slickmaster. It's true Absolute Beginners is the first place folks go. The stickys are important there for those who are looking for help. And NewDocs is certainly easier to search than the entire forum.

    I do strongly agree that while NewDocs should have a place as a sticky in the new beginners sub forum; Let us not restrict our thinking to only as an asset for those just getting introduced to "ubuntu". NewDocs has become my first level in attacking problem resolutions, it's search function is concise and relevant to the issue, many times indepth.

    Those time that I can find little better to do, I peruse the pages and always add to my store of knowledge.

    In short a great asset that is worthy and reflects the great effort put into it !

    You are absolutely right, Bashing-om, and I stand duly corrected.
