Welcome, and thanks!

Welcome (formally) to the Godwiki, and thanks for pitching in on the first Help:Requests... um... request! That resource is now enshrined in the "Did You Know?" box on the Main Page, so hopefully it'll be a useful resource to more people. And hopefully they'll be appreciative of the volunteers' time and efforts, which from our sample size of 1 so far seems to be working out.

I just wanted to drop by with a couple of quick technical/procedural suggestions / thoughts, since this is all sort of off-the-cuff/on-the-fly in terms of organization and there are scant resources available right now to provide people with information in a more structured way — in fact, there's little information period, because we haven't even gotten a handle on exactly what information people will need to have. So, like I said, we're all finding out together. Anyway:

  1. In terms of updating the Help:Requests page, I'd say treat posting there like any standard mediawiki-driven wiki Talk page, meaning you can sign messages with four tildes ~~~~ at the end. That'll automatically be replaced with your username (with links to your user page, and your user talk page — which is this page) and a timestamp for the message.
    If I posted this... 
    This request is complete, everything looks good! -- ~~~~
    It would become... 

    This request is complete, everything looks good! -- FeRDNYC (talk) 16:09, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

  2. If you'd like, please feel free to add yourself to the volunteer list towards the bottom of Help:Requests. There are brief instructions embedded in comments in the page code, if you edit it, and more detailed/explicit instructions at Help:Requests/howto. (Any input on what information would be useful to have on that page is also very welcome.)

Thanks again, and let me know if there's anything I can help you with! If you respond here (which you shouldn't feel obligated to do, I'm sure we'll end up interacting somewhere regardless), I'll probably see it, or you can always leave a message at my talk page by following the (talk) link in my signature and selecting "Add topic" at the top of the page. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 16:09, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
