Default Can we get a howto wiki too?

Howto's in a post is one way to convey information, but they are static. As BSD evloves so does the need for the info. It would be nice to have a one-stop-shop for the newbies.

Thanks for the new home guys! Coup d’état's are tough but I think that admin was given enough time personally, and bsdnexus just isn't cool enough.

This is currently what we are working on. We are working to integrate the wiki with the forum in several ways, including the easy transfer of user accounts from the forums to the wiki. This should be up before long!

i think itd be a good idea. theres lots of info on this board and your guys' old board. move all that stuff onto a wiki. that'd be pretty cool. when it comes to linux OS, to be honest i really hate using google. i would like a definite promising resource. ex. this site

so a wiki would give me a place to check before i ask

Yes, a definitive wiki would indeed be wondrous.

Monitoring & moderating a wiki could be very time consuming.

Yes this is true, but otherwise you don't monitor a Wiki, it's monitored by it's users. And it's rather easy to control spam, while using accounts of people registered already to this forum.

Spam won't be a problem, users need to register through the vB interface, and post using the DokuWiki interface, I doubt there are spambots that can handle that

And I also don't think we will have to deal with wikipedia-like situations such as editwars, vandalism, etc.

Yes, I was missing wiki too. Gentoo for example has a great wiki (http://gentoo-wiki.com).
