  • Would a Wordie "Tutorial" page be a good idea to supplement the faq page? Some people seem to be finding it hard to figure out Wordie, probably because it is so unexpectedly simple. A few pointers might be in order. I seem to recall that when I started on Wordie, there was such a page, wasn't there?

  • There have been suggestions along these lines before (see tagging tutorial), but thus far FAQ is the most we've come up with. A tutorial would be good provided it's easy for newcomers to find: maybe a landing page for new accounts.

    Edit: see also the Wordie for Dummies list.
