Looks like search isn't working at all today. I get nothing returned on any search string.

Is there a list of USA Country Managers? I'm well aware of the RC page but after 10 minutes of searching can't find a list of CMs. Maybe it's there somewhere and I'm just dense... :oops:

Searching for "missing bridge" and "missing bridge/overpass" results in "Create the page".

The "missing bridge/overpass" is explained in the When to Report wiki page.

Of course anyone who is interested is welcome to also create redirects. Just use the format:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[PAGENAME]]

Like:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[Keyboard_shortcuts#Transparent]]

Note the underline does not matter.


Is that a challenge I smell? ;-)

Screw it. I'm going to bust out the Websters Dictionary and redirect anything and everything I can.

Whats a good redirect for the word posterior?
So what if the English language has over a million words. That's just a million reasons to get better at wiki editing.:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So, would a starting layout be something where each roll is listed and a brief/general description of mentioned roll?

Then, have a small line of text stating how these rolls may differ by country and establish a list of these countries. Or just refer to each countries forum thread that explains this.

Got one that I couldn't find. Base Node. Anyone know where that would go in the wiki?
