Seeding the Wiki
#1
I would like to suggest a New Year's resolution to the experienced members of this forum -- help put your knowledge into tog's wiki to seed it out into a useful resource for new customers.

Pages that are linked on the front page but not yet created include:
- Spectrum Analysis
- AP Setup
- Point to point links
- DNS Setup
- PPPoE Setup
- OSPF
- IP Forwarding
- NAT/IP Masquerading

In addition, there are several pages that are little more than placeholders, including:
- Firewalls/ipchains
- Ping watchdog
- Most of the pages dealing with routing

I'm not sure whether or not tog has image uploads enabled for the wiki, but if we can start assembling a collection of small & useful screenshots for examples, we should be able to at least find a storage repository and remote link to the images.

Not familiar or comfortable with wiki-style formatting? I'd be happy to wikify content other people provide; I just have limited experience with a lot of the areas where the wiki is thin and don't want to provide incorrect information to other users. If you do have this experience, why not work up a short e-mail or PM me through this forum so that the information can reach the wiki? Then you'll also have a source of documentation you can use to help train your own new employees as your business expands.

For those of you still with me, head over to tog's wiki at http://staros.tog.net/wiki/Main_Page and see what information you can help provide. Perhaps you even know of necessary pages that aren't even linked to yet.

Edit: I've also updated the main page to try to organize things in a method that is easier to browse. Please let me know what areas can be improved.

Very nice indeed.

I am generally for it, but my time is so short. I am constantly 2 weeks behind schedule. If time permits, or my New Year reorganization works, I will have more time for few projects, wiki for staros being one of them.

Thanks for the comments on the front page, though I must admit I cribbed the layout concept and some of the CSS rules from the official wiki for Guild Wars, a game I sometimes play.

As far as first target areas, I'm planning to target the menu documentation (configuration options, etc. within StarOS) and wireless hardware (radios, antennas, etc.) I think I can probably fill out basic articles for most things not involving routing between my own experience and the manual, but I'll definately need someone to provide information about the routing options. And I can always use additional information and eyes, of course Smile

Why not share some of your knowledge with the community?

I will jump in with policy routing, it is incorporated in my network for a ~2 months now, so I will give some pointers also for easier implementation.

As always, even if I don't write a bunch of new articles, I will at least always act as "editor" and clean up any spelling/grammar and anything that I feel could be worded more clearly.
