    Hi Bashing-om

    NewDocs wouldn't have got this far without the help of 9 core supporters including yourself, so thanking you is well in order.

    Hi all,

    Just a short post to announce that there were 19 pages added to NewDocs for the month

    of May. I also wish to thank Irihapeti as she has kindly joined the team of "helpers" by

    including a link to NewDocs in her signature.


    As no doubt we all feel happy with the present situation, I think we should all

    appreciate Elfy's words from now on by concentrating on the job in hand.

    With kind regards,

    BlinkinCat -

    Hi.

    Just to inform that I've just added a new link under the letter D, and another under the letter L to NewDocs.
    The added links are: Debian - Index of /doc/manuals and Linux Knowledge Base and Tutorial.

    The running total of Documentation pages was updated accordingly, in AlterationsToNewDocs page, and is now of 1,029 plus a Page of Links.

    Another update on NewDocs.

    Added two more links to NewDocs's Links page. The added links are: An A-Z Index of the Bash command line for Linux and Links to GNU/Linux Websites and Books

    Slickymaster, the links page has become an awesome resource.

    On another note, would it be possible to link the pages listed on the NewDocs page:

    Alterations to NewDocs
    Interesting Links
    TitleIndex
    WordIndex

    back to the NewDocs page? I think that would be helpful for navigation purposes.

    Also, what do you all think about adding NewDocs to the SiteNavigation page?

    Hi Buntu Bunny,

    Just my 2 cents on your suggestions.

    The original purpose of NewDocs was to have a simplified (cutting down on excess) but more efficient version of TitleIndex. Correct me if I am wrong, but returning to the face-page should just be a matter of using the page back option on your browser. If it is generally considered that links would be preferable then we can put them in.

    As for having a link to NewDocs on the TitleIndex and WordIndex pages, my opinion is that these two pages are best left as they are, representing the main wiki. Any link to NewDocs may be confusing to the user in my opinion, but any other views should be discussed.

    TitleIndex and WordIndex have only been included on the face-page to allow for the event of not being able to find your required page with a normal NewDocs search.

    However I do think that you make a valid point regarding a link on the SiteNavigation page. What does everyone else think?

    Thanks Buntu Bunny for your considered contributions.

    Cheers,

    Good points, BlinkinCat. The only reason I thought of back links is because I got to the page from a link in Slickymaster's post, hence there was nothing for my back button to go back too. I had no way to go directly to the NewDocs page.

    If someone finds any pages directly related to NewDocs via a link originating elsewhere, such as a search engine, it would be helpful to be able to find its originating page. (This is one of my pet peeves about some websites I find via a search engine.)

    That's my 2 cents, so how are we going to spend our 4 cents?

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

    Hi Buntu Bunny,

    I have acted on your first two points by adding returning links in the pages in question. However the question then may be - should we do the same for all of the remaining 24 alphabetical pages? To now, NewDocs has relied on using the browser page back facility to work. And to now I think it has worked very well.

    At the bottom of each page there is now a return to top of page link (with now two links on the Links page). Should we now add a further link to each of the 24 pages? If we do I think it should be on the bottom as is now on the Links page.

    These questions and the other points you made I leave open for further discussion.

    Regards,
    BlinkinCat -

    Edit - Having thought the matter over, I have added "Return to NewDocs" links on the bottom of each of the 24 alphabetical pages.

    @Buntu Bunny - I feel this action is warranted as I believe your logical reasoning would also apply to the other 24 alphabetical pages. You sure do keep us all on our toes -

    Regarding the Site Navigation Page, I have found out that it is an Immutable Page meaning we don't have the right to edit it. As it is part of the main wiki, I don't think it should be altered in any case.

    Further Edit : I have changed my mind about NewDocs being on the Site Navigation Page. I now believe that there is a case for NewDocs being on that page.
