    Actually the 'pending proof' and 'being edited' pages' text is auto generated and I'm unable to change the short blurb before the list...

    Fair do and didn'ts on the main page

    Trust me to ask you to edit something you can't.

    So I'll start on the others then....

    Cheers Zehd.

    Oooops I tossed a coin and got:

    The quick start guide.

    This guide is an executive summary; a basic overview of the steps needed to use GB-PVR. It summarize these steps and also provide links to further information.
    Executive, good use of word but why? Are you management?

    GB-PVR (Could be wrong here but don't most of us just list as GBPVR?)

    It summarize, well it doesn't, it summarizes*

    and finally just my excuse for being a tosser.......

    provide links
    It doesn't, it provides them

    Told you I was anal!

    No doubt I'll be foiled again by Blader's Wiki

    It's all good.

    GB-PVR is the more offical, proper title. I suspect sub doesn't care what we call it so long as he's called for dinner... (or donations)

    It's a standard that I have started, and following through.

    Executive summaries are for people who think they're so important that they don't have enough time to read the whole manual. "Just give it to me in the nutshell"...

    Actually it all comes down to Marshal McClune :'Make it easy, or you lose your audience...quick...'

    Like the man said. Both are common. The hyphen is official.

    From zehd

    From Fatman do

    So officially then we all call it GB-PVR?

    This has IMHO been a whole problem without and within. No consolidation at all. It may be anarchy but it can be an organised one

    My main humph with the Wiki is a lack of agreed terminology but it starts at the beginning.

    So Sub GB-PVR, or GBPVR?

    Bearing in mind that officialness potentially invokes the hand of the Devil's child

    Cheers

    Every time I type it, I type GB-PVR. Links, forum names etc are all "GB-PVR".

    Oooops,

    so now I go into the 'being edited' and it has jumped from 2 pages to 11!

    And all I just wanted to talk about was .NET!

    A beast has arisen?
