Q. How can I keep up with what's happening?

There are many ways to do this.

  1. View the recent changes to the wiki. Whenever you visit the site, you should be able to click on the Last Changes link (in the sidebar) to find out which pages have changed recently. You may also use RSS to see recent changes.
  2. Track pages via email. Once you are logged in, you can decide to track changes to specific pages. Just click the eye icon at the top of the page. This will send you an email whenever that page changes. (If the eye icon is crossed by a red bar, it means you are already tracking that page.)
  3. Track the discussion forum via email. You can also track activity on the forum. Again, you do this by clicking on the eye icon. The discussion forum is often used to advertise new topics created by people, or to broadcast messages that are of general interest to the whole community.
  4. Use Web feeds. We have feeds for the wiki, the forum, and the calendar. Look for the Image RSS icons at the bottom of any page.
