Images of doom. Also, Orlando. With the occasional spot of metamoblogging. Because being recursive is fun.

moblogUK encourage the use of the tag 'metamoblogging' in this situation... :)

Gah, I never do remember to use tags.

see also for tag help. much more clear than my attempts to document them.

You may start URLS with usernames for user specific tag searches, ie:

THAT is a damn cool feature.

Also, thanks for the wiki link!

mat says:

the wiki is new, I'm not really publicising it much right now. But Joe wrote such a good bit about tagging, it seemed rude not to link to it.

Feel free to register for the wiki and contribute, by the way.

Oh, you can also do this:

For a random metamoblogging image, like this:

That's how Alfie does the "GIRLS" image in his sidebar.

I'm not sure in what way I'd contribute, but I'll register. I do heart wiki. But I'm sure there are folks who are far more familiar with how things work 'round here.

I had wondered about that! Very cool!

You're actually in a quite a good position to at least review some of the documentation - being a new user, you can spot the bits that don't make sense.

I'm crap at writing documentation, becuase I know the software backwards and it's very easy to think that people automatically know how to do thingX, when in fact I really need a paragraph on ThingX, because ThingX is actually quite tricky, but I don't notice because I wrote/invented it a year ago..

Which is why the wiki exists. It will hopefully become the definitive help/faq for the site. RSI slows me down, but I'm trying to write a section or two a day. We'll get there. :)

The tag 'bandwagon' is doing OK too!

16th Sep 2005, 16:46

onceupon says:

Well, THAT I can definitely do. I AM an editor, after all. Clarity of writing is my purpose.


Actually, it's nice to find that there's some way in which I can help out on the site. I've found myself spending quite a lot of time here and it's always nice to contribute when one finds something really awesome.

Bandwagon is looking quite shiny.

"Because being recursive is fun."

Isn't it though. The unix world has known this for a long time, and has a grand tradition of using --link-->recursive acronyms<--link-- (can't see links in this theme!)

onceupon says:

*laugh* That is absolutely excellent!

I really ought to just give up on getting any work done today. *grin* Apparently, today is meant to be spent on wiki and moblog!

It used to cause me particular amusement when clients/managers would ask me what 'PHP' stood for, at the agency I used to work at.

I'd explain it stood for 'PHP Hypertext Preprocessor' and they'd ask 'Yes, but what does the PHP bit stand for?', so I'd say...

round and round we go.. :)

A never-ending spiral of acronym madness.
