New Articles Needed

From NeoWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Listed below are hints and topics from the forums at Trinity that need to be added to the wiki. You can help us by turning the content of these links into new articles by editing the stub pages.

For each topic below, there are two types of links; one to a "stub" page in the wiki and one to the actual thread at trinity. The wiki page link is provided to make creating the articles easier. If the wiki link is blue, a page is already set up for you, ready for editing. If the wiki link is red, clicking on it (if you have editing privileges) will create the page for you.

The links to the trinity threads (blue numbers in brackets with a link icon after the end bracket) are provided both for potential editors, and for those persons looking for answers to their questions. You can click on the link on this page to get to your answer more quickly. (Note that in some cases, the wiki page may contain quotes from the thread as well as links, and may be a faster route to the information you need.)

Note that the predominant language of the trinity forums is English, so most if not all of these threads will be in English. At the time of this writing (April 2007), there were French, Spanish, and Italian speakers among the "regulars" at trinity. If you are in need of a summary or explanation of a tip in one of these languages, post a request in the appropriate thread, and someone may be able to help you.
