Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

There are still lots of bugs to be solved, features to be added and improvements to be made. But, now that there's a useable GUI, more and more people will (be able to) discover the magic world of building scenery. And I'm sure that, if all those people give some feedback in the [http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&{{forum link|t=7485 |text=forum topic]}}, the GUI will improve rapidly!
