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

You are invited to contribute!

We would like to emphasize that the monthly newsletter can not live without the contributions of FlightGear users and developers. The FlightGear Newsletter is a community-driven newsletter, which means that it is created and edited by people like you. You don't need to be a long-time FlightGear user (or even a developer) to contribute to the newsletter.

In fact, helping write the monthly FlightGear newsletter is an excellent way for getting started contributing to the FlightGear community very quickly and very easily.

Even if you don't have to add anything yourself, just reviewing and improving additions by others is also highly appreciated, as are efforts to help translate newsletters or add screen shots (e.g. taken from the forum or mailing lists) to the newsletter. Screen shots can be uploaded at Special:Upload.

Everyone with a wiki account (free to register) can edit the newsletter and every contribution is welcome. So if you know about any FlightGear related projects such as for example updated scenery or aircraft, please do feel invited to add such news to the newsletter.

A simple template providing a basic structure for each upcoming newsletter can be taken from Talk:Next newsletter. This template can be copied/pasted into each new newsletter to help users getting started providing contents.

The draft for the upcoming newsletter can always be found at Next newsletter.

If English is not your native language, please don't be concerned about contributing to the newsletter, you can always easily ask fellow FlightGear users to review or proof-read your changes. Also, one of the easiest ways to get started is simply copying/pasting text from forum or mailing list discussions, such as announcements (e.g., new aircraft, new scenery, etc.).

Another neat option to get started is adding links to FlightGear-related YouTube videos. For this, we have a dedicated section in each newsletter: "FlightGear on YouTube."
