WikiFoundry updates
If you are experiencing an issue, before you report it, please check to see if there is already a recently created thread made by someone else reporting the same issue, and post on that thread, instead of creating a new thread.

Doing the complete opposite clogs the forums with the same report, and makes things messy. Let's try to keep things in one thread. Any duplicate threads end up being deleted anyways, so it'd be better if there weren't any extra threads created in the first place.

You can use many different features to find threads before posting your own. The Search this Site box, and the Discussions section are the main ways to find recent threads about an issue. There has also been a thread dedicated to this that you can read here.
You can follow Travis' progress on the WikiFoundry Twitter feed and the Facebook page.
If you have specific questions, feel free to email Travis at travis[at]wikifoundry.com

Thank you, WikiFoundry Central Staff

Featured Tip - Upgrade your browsers
Tip provided by: CaptainSpaz
As of November 6, 2013, WikiFoundry now supports the Blink layout engine, meaning Google Chrome, Opera, and Maxthon are now supported. Though, it is only recent versions of these browsers that utilize the Blink engine; older versions still use WebKit.

These browsers are full of features and support that Internet Explorer and Firefox haven't offered us, and you may find you have a better experience on WikiFoundry with one of them.

In any event, upgrading your browsers insure you will be able to keep up with any changes that may occur to the Wiki platform in the coming months or years, thus creating fewer support issues.

For more info, and download links, view the browser support page.
If you have any tips, please message one of the Staff members.

He has also been running the yearly WikiFoundry/Wetpaint awards since the original creator, Michael Beezner, was laid off by Wetpaint. While he mainly does "behind-the-scenes" work now, he's still a well-respected member of the community, and we thank him for all his work he has does for the community.
If he has helped you out at all, feel free to send him a compliment to thank him!
