Sorry,
I actually moved that page to better reflect the content,  but here is the new link

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Troubleshooting_AVWizard

Thanks,
Rob
Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep in mind not to refer to the wiki anymore as well.

Come on man, can we let this wiki thing rest.  You were shit on and the rant the Trout put on the wiki page was classless and stupid, we can all see that, but there are a few of us actually trying to improve the wiki so that many of these repeat questions can be easily found and people can trouble shoot their  problems.  Hopefully this will help you work on several of the things on your to do list and let you stop answering the same questions over and over again. 

No body is going to even look at the wiki for info if one of the most common posters on this forum keeps degrading it. 

It is obvious to me that you are serious about helping others get a working system, so your help with updating the pages would be greatly appreciated.   I am not a wiki admin, nor will I be, but I do want this to be a place of collaboration and not confrontation.  Please help us help others.

Thanks,
Rob

I'm sorry but the problem here is that I often link to these pages directly, which is completely useless if everybody keeps moving things around whenever they feel like it.  All this senseless reorganising over and over again is getting on my nerves.  The sad thing is that I can hardly even find the pages I added and categorized myself anymore these days.

And let's be honest, is "Troubleshooting_AVWizard" really that much better or clearer then "AVWizard"?  It is a general page about the AVWizard, not about troubleshooting isn't it?

Personally I think you're the sanest one of the bunch (which includes me) so if anyone should be the admin I think it's you.  I just wish you guys had focused more on expanding the existing structure instead of removing and reorganising over and over just for the sake of it. 

So I'm just going to leave the wiki alone and hope that I can still find the (far from perfect) instructions (which I added myself) the next time I want to redo the setup in my own home.

Zaerc - I totally agree. The constant changes are incredibly frustrating and to be honest mostly add zero value. Unless an addition to the Wiki is by someone who is 'defacing' the site or is plain incorrect then it should be left alone in my opinion. Lets get back to adding information and value to the Wiki as a resource - it doesn't need 'editors' it needs more people like you Zaerc putting their time, effort and knowledge into it.
