So be it. I have declared it thus. Let the devs know, particularly nchanter, roebeet, clockworx, hatax... who am I missing off the top...

Oops my bad. Laptop froze while editing and I accidentally wiped everything before the hacking instructions --- then we both were reinstalling the original outline at the same time. You got most of it Wik, thanks. Confused me at first, which is pretty easy actually. I fixed the links I made to my mirrors of the OEM FW zips and also wrote a couple of paragraphs in the empty Overview section which describes the PDN's initial release history, differences between the White and Black, and that we're going forward with development despite lack of source code.

LOL, scared me for a minute. Thanks for cleaning up those areas, Mark. The better and clearer we can make the wiki, the fewer noob questions we'll get in the discussion threads.

I note with irony that as punishment for my hijacking threads yesterday with talk of pony farts, this thread has morphed into telling Mark how to do his job.

the threads are in chronological order by last post if you click on the pandigital novel discussion board rather than using what's new. otherwise, I don't see that happening, as it might be pretty complicated to reimplement. pm mp4 and ask him about it.

I had brought this up before, but since the roebeet's and nchntrman's ROMs are recommended and/or acceptable for mainstream use, they don't really belong in the dev area (where we eat newbies for lunch)you might want to do one of the following:1) Move their threads to the "main" PDN forum.2) Create a new forum for ROM releases.3) Optionally, make the new Cruz subforum a general "custom ROM releases" subforum.Also, a "Help" subforum, where you post questions that need help. That would probably help a lot with clutter, provided people don't ignore it completely, which of course they will.

I haven't touched it... any chance it's been backed up? Maybe you could keep a backup yourself...?

The wiki has backups of changes built in.Two useful tools for a wiki volunteer are the recent changes page Link is on the left side and Watch page.If you 'watch' a page any edits made triggers a email to the address in your profile. It contains a link that will show you the changes made.Recent Changes shows info and links to the last 50 Changes made to the wiki. looks like:

At least point the guy in the right direction first by given him the link to the video thread. We all were newbs at one point.

Oh for crying out loud--how exactly is this off topic or a thread hijack? clockworx was saying the threads we had for the various roms were becoming too unwieldy for some things and since they felt they had a fairly decent beta quality build of the various roms it was now time to start opening things to newbies and making things more newbie friendly. He proposed several solutions and asked for thoughts on them one of which I though was a good idea so I seconded the proposal.[b']This was off topic or a hijacking HOW exactly?[/b]--bornagainpenguin

Let's not get personal in the tell me what to do thread... or anywhere else on here. PM me to move things, but keep in mind, I may ignore you. Otherwise, if it's bad, I'll get it. I usually let one ot post go, and move it all if it gets far off topic.

True we all were noobs... and there is a search function, and the thread was for sd card, not for video playback. Perhaps I am being harsh, thats why I did ask :) so now I know what the threshhold is.

Yea I always look, but some just do not know any better. They are young and unwise and we must push them in the right direction.

Thank you.

the thread was for sd card

And I asked for recommendations for class of SD card, specifically noting that I was interested in using the PDN for video playback. If I had failed to do so, wouldn't you just be complaining about how you are unable to give a recommendation without giving any context?
