We will certainly need those proficient in English to check spelling
and grammar, but we also need those proficient in Linux and in
particular, openSUSE for the technical content. It takes a blend of
people, with a blend of skills. While English is my native language, I
am not one to proof read things for grammatical correctness or
spelling. I am dyslexic, so things like that get me all confused. It's
the technical part that I am good at.

Mike, maybe you could do some writing on Notebooks and Netbooks. Since
I don't own one yet, I have no experience with them. Maybe you could
edit or add to http://en.opensuse.org/GRUB In my opinion, there is
certainly room to add content there.

However, before anyone does any editing or adding, please see either
myself or spyhawk in IRC, so we can go over some details.

I certainly appreciate all those who have joined, and Mike, I
appreciate you taking the initiative to introduce yourself here on the
mailing list.

Respectfully
Jon Rocker

Jonathan_R requested that we introduce ourselves.

I'm Mike (sometimes AKA confuseling), a one year or so Linux user, but a
moderately technical computer user for many years.

I don't have anything I'd call a 'specialism' yet, but my Linux uses
include general netbook (eeepc) use and tinkering, word processing /
spreadsheets / dtp / diagrams (mostly all related to my degree), a
MoinMoin personal wiki I've set up for keeping notes on the same (so
wiki syntax is at least vaguely familiar...), and quite a lot of mucking
around with grub, trying various different distros.

I'm also just starting to get back into coding, having learned a bit of
C/C++ years ago, and now trying to learn Ruby on Netbeans (assuming it
survives Oracle :( ). I'm also dabbling in LaTeX, but not sure how long
that'll last...

I'm a native English speaker, and am generally reckoned good with
language - so I suppose I anticipate that, rather than anything
technical, being my main use.

Nice to see you here Mike.

You are the first one to introduce yourself using mail list.
I've seen some forum nicks on the current en.opensuse.org wiki, so that is
probably the introduction method they used.

A native English speaker has important role on the wiki where majority of
writers use English with various levels of proficiency and can't achieve clear
and concise style all the time. (like me :)

I guess that Wiki Team page needs bigger team section where we can list in a
few words where we can help.

If you have any questions, among other things you can visit IRC channel
#opensuse-wiki .
