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

Screenshots tip

Hi,

Thanks for adding pictures! It is really appreciated!

There's one little tip for next time: please hide the menubar (F10 key) and use the built-in screenshot-taker (F3 key). That'll leave all the Windows icons etc. out of the image and thus looks nicer on wiki pages ;)

Animated jetway video(s)

Vinura, thanks for the videos, but I'd like to point out that putting --prop:/sim/paths/use-custom-scenery-data=true at the end of the EXE field isn't the right way to do it. You use the Properties configuration, accessed through the Advanced button on the last page. Also, I really don't think you need 26 minutes of video to explain how to use the system. I'd appreciate if you opened it up in your video editor (Movie Maker?) and deleted the unnecessary parts.

Images upload

Vin, Great to see your contribution to the newsletter, but there are a couple of issues at hand: First and foremost: when uploading a file please add a suggestive name, do not leave it as fgfs-screen-xyz.png, because that way it quickly becomes a nightmare to search the images, and to manage them. second: please take a look at other pages' layout, and take your time to read a bit of the wiki editing help.
