what do you mean with mirroring the forum?
I meant that each "HOW TO" goes in a sub category named after each forum category.
The following are examples of fictional pages in sub categories under the "HOW TO" category
[[howtos:Hardware & Drivers:ATI vs Nvida]]
[[howtos:Networking_Security:Set up wireless networking]]
[[howtos:Software General:Install software from Source Code]]
[[howtos:Web & Internet:Browser Comparisons]]
[[howtos:Office & Printing:Lexmark Printer Driver Installation]]
[[howtos:Multimedia_Games:Counter Strike on Vector]]
[[howtos:Portable VL:Vector on your USB stick]]
[[howtos:X-Rated:Alternate methods of configuring X]]
[[howtos:Technical General:How to auto start a daemon before login]]
In the first example the article "Install Vector is in the "HOW TO" category and in the sub category "Installation".
"Docs", "F.A.Q.s", and some other categories could belong to a higher category ex.
[[news:Style guidelines released]]
Pages should be either 'beginner' or 'user'
I like that idea. Now how do we distinguish them apart. Perhaps some kind of logo.
Before this project began I was toying with the idea of setting up a wiki this winter for beginers (me). I had the name 'NEWBSAUCE' in mind and imagined a baby penguin in a diaper being spoon fed. My motto was going to be "Strap on your bib,". Perhaps some of the artists can come up with something like this.
Or we could just go with a different page colour.
the gentoo wiki is great and we should take it as a model for contents and organization
It is and we should take note of both it's strengths and weaknesses.
