Welcome wikidot
« on: August 07, 2010, 11:27:00 am »
Recently, we made a wikidot site called otcalc.  It can be found here.  This is an amazing site.  It's all navigated via the top menu bar.  If you want to join, hover over the users button, and then click "Join".  That page will tell how you join.  You should get a wikidot account first, but for the life of me, I can't remember how.  I think it's mostly automatic, now.

If you hover over the users button, you can click on a button that says teams.  Click on it.  Most likely, you will not be part of a team, just yet.  If you are not a part of a team, and want to be, click on the "users" button.  If you are not in that last, It means I haven't added you yet.  Wait patiently until I do.  When I do, You will have a members page.  Click on the link for your members page, next to your user name to see it.  You can edit it to reflect interests, hobbies, or whatever.  If you click tags, you can do a space separated list of the teams you are on.  For example, If I was on all the teams, I would have:
admin z80-software z80-hardware arm-software arm-hardware.

Me and Albert H are the only two admins.  I will detail more things later, but for now, sign up and try it out!

[EDIT] More added:
Okay, so all the discussions should happen on Omnimaga, except a few things.  One of those are suggestions.  Suggestions are rather simple.  All you have to do is hover over the processor of your choice in the menu bar, eg Z80 or ARM, and select Suggestions.  Here you will see, if there are any present, the suggestions that people have given.  Creating your own is simple.  Just give it a name to identify it, and click "Create Suggestion".  After that, you will be brought to a page where you can suggest things or ideas like keyboard layouts, etc.  This is for both hardware and software.  You can rate these ideas up, or down, depending on whether you like them.  If suggestions are liked, then they can be accepted, or if they are disliked, they can be rejected. (Note: The automatic support for this is not done. I'm working on it)

Most of you probably want to change your buddy icon (Avatar).  In the top right corner, click on my Account.  Then, on the left, click "My profile".  Click "My buddy icon", and change it using that.

Do not edit pages unless you have permission to.  Eg, if you created the suggestion, you are the head of one of the teams and are updating the main hardware/software page, you are an admin or moderator, or if you are editing YOUR user page.  Tags are used somewhat in the site as described above.  They help identify what team you are on.  Please use them.  Note, adding the "admin" tag does not make you an admin.  You can also discuss pages if you want.  All these options are at the bar at the bottom right of the webpage.

Any questions are to be asked here in this forum.  Most of the discussion will go on here.  The wikidot site is basically a repository of ideas and information.  When we finish, the site will probably host all the information about the calcs, if we choose to make it FOSS.

Create a wikidot account here, and then sign up to my site here.  The forum for that site is the per page discussions, but there is a button for recent-posts under users in the menu bar.

Any questions?

Nice!
You should also add Firmware to each drop down link.

Great. But you only signed up to wikidot. I invited you to the site itself.  Be sure to change your tags to signify what team(s) you are on.

Yeah, everyone who signs up looses the game.

Anyway, Sir, I added the software section as you suggested.

[EDIT] I just modified my first post.  Please read it. Thank you.

Yeah I think the discussion should happen here. It's best to use an already existing calc forum for the majority of discussion rather than splitting the TI community even more when only 2 english TI forum manages 10000 posts a year anymore. However, suggestions for the Wiki pages can happen there. I assume that includes page discussions, too.

Hey graphmastur, I think you should change "Software" to "Firmware," because most people use software to reference the individual programs that run on firmware, and use firmware to reference OSes.
Also, can I be added to the z80 firmware team?

Done.  I'll add you.  I'm about to add lead parts, and icons for the main member pages to show teams.  I'll let you be the lead for z80-firmware, and for now, I'll be the leader for both arm categories.

[EDIT] added team leaders.  You are the z80-firmware leader.

I added, to this page icons to show for hardware and firmware. Leaders aren't shown on that page.  This way, you can see how many projects a person is part of.

Any other suggestions/questions, please ask.
