For this, I'm in work mode. erhaps I should be smiling more. But it's saracsm, and dry comments. Don't mean ANYTHING bad by it. It's all good... Let's get our hands dirty and overhaul the wiki.

But why? GB-PVR doesn't need Dot Net 3.0. It needs 2.0 and updates.
Do you want mention that .net 3 is supsoed to be backward compatible, so go ahead and install it and you won't break anything?
Should we say the same thing for 3.5? How about Service Pack 3
The quickstart is much longer than before. But that's because it needs to be at least this long, to get the structure of the process from downloading to using...
I don't want to put too much information on the first couple of pages. I want that info to be located inside, in the manual itself.
This is the concept:
Wiki Title: Frogs are evil
This wiki is degined to explain how all frogs are evil. You will find information to determine whether your pet is a frog, whether a toad is considered a frog, and whether you should actually contribute to a wiki about evil frogs
Table of Contents
Amphibians in General
Evil and Good Frogs
- Remember ALL frogs are evil. Even the prince kind. Esecially the prince kind
But I have a Toad, does that matter?
- More than likely you didn't read the preceding topic. Otherwise you wouldn't be reading this one. For more information, see, Page: What haens when you refuse to take directions by the editor...
How to tell if your frog is evil
- It all depends on whether it is evil or not
I'm sorry but I'm tired and I have no more energy to talk about evil frogs. If you would like to continue on your own, please google 'evil frogs'---
Hah... My point is, the quick start is a list of really short ideas. Some people, all they do is skim. If anyone needs more info, like troubleshooting, they have to go a couple of pages deeper...
I've broken that rule with the system requirements. It should be on the Download and INstall page. But it's so freaky important that people read this, I put it on the front too...
So, do you think dot 3 is freaky important to be on the skim page?
If you do, that's cool, we'll do it, but I really think it would be a detail rather than a skim point...
