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).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Attracting new contributors

Hi,

while I agree that we need additional contributors, I don't think we should try to achieve that by placing the same (lengthy) texts in every newsletter. Reading the same call for help every month looks rather desperate and might make people avoid our newsletters because they've already read half of it. I personally think the "Contributing" section is sufficient and a lot more attractive.

Not sure what you meant with your edit comment, but there's still the "Getting your own ideas and features in FlightGear without having to be a coder" section that was already present in the previous edition; as well as (partly) overlapping with the "Contributing" section.

Okay, apparently I completely misunderstood and have been removing the wrong sections. But feel free to revert/remove whatever you consider redundant. In general, I tend to agree with you - but currently we're not exactly having too many contributors, and not a lot of content either. So I tend to add stuff just to populate the newsletter a little, even though I realize that quality isn't really improving this way (just talked with Thorsten about this). Sorry for removing the wrong sections though...--Hooray (talk) 20:54, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Newsletter and Android

Hi all, I really enjoy the new theme for the newsletter, however the layout seems to be screwed up on Android default Internet browser. Has anyone else tried it?
