General discussion[edit]

This is currently very little more than a brain dump of things I've quickly thought if with no structure or order at all, let alone actual content. Feel free to run with it where you will and discuss your opinions, etc nothing at this point is set in stone (particularly the name). Thryduulf (talk) 02:01, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

There's some stuff listed at User:Conrad.Irwin/For Wikipedians. A better name might just be "Beginner's guide for experienced Wikipedians". --Yair rand (talk) 04:04, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
