Mirek, have you given maintainer rights to phirox or someone else? Or maybe want you to delete these pages.
However you done a nice job Razz . Keep it on. Someday maybe you let C++ for php Laughing .

The wiki can take a role similar to the "Community Contributed Documentation" at Ubuntu's help site (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/).
It sits right next to the official documentation and works very well alongside their forums, especially as a place for recurring themes that would be arduous to read entire forum topics to understand completely.

I agree with you but for that we need upload to be enabled and i don't know if Mirek will agree. We need to clean somehow the wiki from spammers accounts and install an add-on for users account creation to proof they are humans.

After solving that we can just wait for contributors ( since the wiki was "restored" there was just 2 contributors: Phirox and me, but with my bad English and also poor knowledge about Upp i cannot be named contributor Embarassed ).

So, feel free to add your documentation on wiki(you can use just some images for now, listed on Sandbox).

Ok. What about linking the wiki accounts with the forum accounts? Is this possible?

Yes it is. But that request time even for a web developer. The problem (spammers) is simply resolved with human proofing test. There exist an add-on for wiki.

The problem with cross-account is quite special, because we don't want all 518 users from forum to have accounts on wiki(it is not normal), just contributors. At the moment the wiki have 238 users from which approximate 5 real users, others are spammers.

Another problem are uploads. An image says a 1000 words. I guess you cannot make documentation without images (you can but have to write a lot).

So, fist of all we must:
- remove spammers accounts from wiki
- install 'human proofing' add-on
- enable uploads
- find contributors

I have just noticed sf.net now supports wiki for projects.

Should not we use it instead?

Wiki which are hosted on sf are primitive, but good enough to store info we need. I believe we have some advantages making that move:
- the maintainer will be one from dev team
- spammers are not interested anymore
- save space from upp server
- ...

I agree with you.
P.S: Don't forget to update links on all pages. Razz
