This is nothing too serious, but I'm looking forward to making and article about Odds and ends and this and that.

IOW an article about helpful things, tips, tricks, and interesting features in MMF2.

So if you have any such thing in mind just post it on here and I'll add it to the article. Everything will be seperated into 3 groups- beginner, intermediate, and advanced, so please say which catergory your advice will fall under.

As usual, all will get credit for their advice.

Interested?

In my experience.... nobody would read it. It's going to be long. And nobody reads long TDC articles.

Instead.. I suggest starting say, a wiki or something for klik ideas. I used to do this Click FAQ, it didn't work out.. not for more than 4 years. Did it 3 times even. One major idea like this has been planned every 2 years. They don't go anywhere.

Start a wiki. It's the best solution

I read long articles if they interest me. If people reply to this I'll judge it by what they say and then decide to read it or not.

A wiki would be good, sometimes articles get lost in the archive never to be read again because people can't be bothered searching for it or don't even know about it so they ask their questions on the forums. For me, a wiki is always there for me to go back to, but I'm not saying it should replace an article. In my opinion, you should do the article and keep building on it, and also start a wiki. If you slowly build up the article then people will read it piece by piece everytime it is updated, making length not an issue, and with a wiki aswell it will be even more noticable/helpful. Keep people updated with it, mention it in forums etc and then it may be successful. Look through the forums, if people have mentioned something you think should go in the article, pm them about it. This whole site is full of helpful little tips that hide in the most obscure places so bringing them together would save a lot of time.

I write long articles, but honestly, something about them makes it harder to read them back on TDC, compared to on Notepad. People read comments before reading the article - and obviously since the long articles have no ratings, nobody really comprehends them even when read.

Wiki structures are very well designed for reading.. and it's actually much, much easier to collaborate and fix typos.
