Hi, MikeDunlavey, and welcome to LiteratePrograms! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a couple of tips for newcomers:

  • If you haven't done so already, please take a look at how to write an article on LiteratePrograms. The markup is basically the same as that used on Wikipedia, but there are a few differences of which you should be aware.
  • Please try to include a descriptive edit summary with every edit you make.
  • Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

I hope you enjoy editing here! If you need help, post a question on the Public forum, ask Deco (the site creator), or just ask me on my talk page. --Allan McInnes (talk) 18:16, 13 July 2007 (PDT)

Mike, if you want to put up some of your previously published material on the site, I for one would find it interesting, and I'm sure that I would not be alone. But bear in mind that this is a wiki and that means that others may edit anything you put up. Sometimes the changes can be useful; sometimes they can be irritating but harmless; and sometimes they are just plain wrong. However that's just how the wiki works. Like I say, don't let it stop you adding anything. I'm sure that most of us would agree that the topic is important and well worth writing about. -- Derek Ross | Talk 19:20, 16 July 2007 (PDT)

I agree with Derek - both the interest in seeing some of your previously published material appear here, and the caveat about other people editing your work. The other caveat I would add is that whatever you add here should be within the "scope" of the LP wiki, i.e. LP is not a general software website for people to (re)publish whatever they want, but a site dedicated to literate programs. --Allan McInnes (talk) 22:21, 21 July 2007 (PDT)
