- Removed the NMT Category as it only had the one entry which was small enough to incorporate in the Syabas pade linked to in the About Main Category. chris57 01:11, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
- Renamed Themes category to Skins/Themes. Add a bit of a better intro and may merge Theme pages into Category page. Need some YAMJ skins gallery images adding chris57 23:27, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
- Incomplete article (article isn't finished)
- Consider merging article (article probably should be merged with another article)
- Warning (something bad could happen so be careful)
- Difficulty level (Easy:Medium:Hard) you can add more than one, so if article starts easy and then becomes Hard you can add at each point.

Policies and guidelines
Suggestion for policy:
When someone "wikifies" content from forum posts, it should always be credited to the original author(s).
E.g an informative/interesting post where one (or in case of a thread, many users) have contributed to the content, their forum user names shall be displayed in the wiki article, for example:
"The contents of this article was originally contributed by <username> on the NMT forum."
Optionally, a link to the post/thread could be inserted too.
^^^ seems fair to me.
Just found this section of the WIKI, I find it really counter intuitive having being used to forum setups for so long.
Anyway bear with me i'll pick it up eventually.
Getting a thread together for the WIKI launch. Any ideas for a good eye catching title and where/how to post it?
I'm thinking a stickied thread in General Discussion.

Yeah, I find this section weird too, but it seems the wiki way. If it doesn't work, perhaps we can just use the forum. As for an eyecatching title, that's a toughie. How about Your NMT Wiki Needs You! :) You could also mention that in about 2 months, the wiki has gone from 1 article (more or less; the main page) to 95. - Rioch
- A wiki is something else than a forum. It's better for the supply of information. I think it's good to discuss wiki progress here at this central point. Jackadam 09:10, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Just leanrt somethng new, thanks chris57 13:18, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
- I noticed not everyone is aware of how to use a wiki. First of all, you can sign your contributions on talk pages with 4 ~~~~ signs. With : signs you can jump in your tekst. Jackadam 09:19, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Can somebody adds a new box to the left frame, with the main categorys from the main page? This is very handy and known from so many wiki-sites in the web. And may be change the color from the NMT-Logo from this boring 'i will never ever go back to this grayscale wiki'-gray to a nice blue one? THX --Lumberjack 16:33, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
- I agree with lumberjack on both points, it would enhance navigation and experience.

- I don't think I would be easy to realize that, and it wouldn't be worth the effort I guess. Jackadam 11:15, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
editting with ip
I assume very often people may want to improve minor things on this wiki, but don't see the point of registering for just a small thing. Why not let people edit under ip adress if they want to? Maybe there will be a little spam, but we can revert that easily. And block the IP for further editing. Just like the main en.wikipedia.org? Jackadam 11:18, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
- Sounds OK to me. If things go out of hand we could always revert to require login. / Dc11ab 13:28, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
A good wiki example
- That wiki uses other software, not MediaWiki. Niels Leenheer 15:44, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
- I think we cant compare our MediaWiki with this DokuWiki. Both are (not totally, but very) different. I like this translation feature, that they offer. There exist an german wiki at this austrian server. There are not a lot of pages (23) and not much users (35) yet, but may be we can work together? --Lumberjack 20:01, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Good idea, but not with a section for every brand. i think a matrix shold be better. --Lumberjack 16:03, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
- Matrix looks better, that's true. We're having 2 receivers now, waiting for a couple more. Jackadam 16:07, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Subcategory for Web Services in /Development?
I think the Web Services don´t really belong to the categories that currently exist below /Development but they still deserve a category, don´t you think?
- Always open for change if its well thought out. Excal has said that he also feels some of the Categories in the Development section need looking at. Put forward ideas either here or in the forum WIKI thread. chris57 22:47, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Is there any possibility to add an other language? I would like to translate this wiki to german and i saw this feature at the wiki example named above. Also the german forum users are interested in an german version.
- I for one like the idea of translations, but the problem is to keep the information consistent across languages; e.g. there must always be a synch to the reference language (e.g. English). If an existing page get's translated that's fine (risk is that it is left unmaintained) and the other way around; new pages may pop up in other languages that are not in english so we start to get a non-consistency among the articles. How would we distinguish and link the translated pages? Dc11ab 11:20, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi! Im new to this so please be patient if I seem to be asking stupid questions, But, Iv just purchased an EGreat EG-M32B along with a Seagate 1TB hard drive. I intend purchasing a 'Drobo' For extra storage space... 1. Can I use just about any Skin/Software to organise all my Blue Ray/Dvds, music, pics etc? 2. If not, which are the best software?? 3. How easy is it to load the software and covers that introduce my collection?
- Hi Steve, please use the Networkedmediatank.com forum for these types of questions, the Wiki is not suiteable for support/discussions. You'll find that there are different kinds of jukeboxes; some requires a Windows PC/server, Linux etc. while some run straight on the NMT unit. Search the board and I'm sure you'll get informative answers, good luck! / Dc11ab 07:57, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
