Eric, I've been following your wiki contributions, really interesting stuff, thank you for contributing.
Just a few minor suggestions, I noticed you don't use the wiki markup very much, particularly two features:
- numbered lists
- signature tag when doing discussions
For numbered lists put a hash mark in front of items, instead of manually numbering things (edit this talk page to see how I did the list above).
For tagging your comments in talk pages there is a button above the textarea (second from the end) with help text reading: "Your signature with timestamp". If you click that it will automatically insert some characters that get replaced with your name, date, etc upon saving the changes.
Definitely take some time to read the markup help pages, there is a lot of cool stuff you can do with wiki markup: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Formatting
Lex, Thank You!
I am definitely still a novice in this whole text/webpage/wikipage formatting thing so your help is greatly appreciated!
We are in OSE meeting now, you should join if you can:
Im writing this as a template for myself.
great work on the wiki Eric. if you are looking for a little project you could go through and make sure that each of these genealogy pages are listed in order of newest to oldest Genealogy_Directory Also might try to make them all styled with bullets or whatever the same way. Also, feel free to try out OpenSCAD if you want to jump in on the circular knitting machine code :D I can help with tips and tricks. --Dorkmo (talk) 21:50, 10 March 2018 (CET)
Thanks! I can definetly do the organizational stuff. For now I am trying to make "Construction Sets" for just about everything we have made or will make. I am also doing some stuff like making sure all information pages go into a page similar to constructions ses but for knowledge. Organizing the geneologies fits nicely into this so I will definetly do that.
I am a student so my work is kind of sporadic. Once I am done with all the stuff listed in the above bit I will probably do a smaller design or to of mine on this page as a sort of learning exercise. I think I will do this Open Source Vacuum Cleaner project, or maybe design a dremel tool holder to make a basic D3D 3 Axis CNC Mill.
Then once I am done with the above things I will probably join the official dev team and do stuff with that.
Anyhow how does OpenSCAD work? From what I gathered (and may be completely wrong in thinking) it is a CAD software where you directly interface with the code, instead of a program like FreeCAD where you use the interface of the software (unless you get all fancy in FreeCAD at least).
I don't think I will be of much help on that front (YET at least). Although, It seems like you are doing a fine job on it without me getting in there so I guess I will leave it at that. Sorry if I ranted a bit there, and keep up the great work!
I'm just writing this as a sort of test of this f a n c y n e w s e r v e r before I do anything else.
