What I would look for (in addition to Timothy's reply) is an easy way
to navigate to information based on general to specific structure.
Sort of like discovering what you want by 20 questions game.
Searching for information requires that you know what to call
something. However, a newbie does not know what to call something in
revspeak yet. A newbie has a problem to solve, and wants to find
ideas for how to solve the problem in Transcript. This list is very
good for getting that information from the experts for the asking,
but not so easy to find the previously posted solutions without a lot
of reading. I would like to see the information organized by general
topic to specific topic in a hierarchy where many different starting
paths can still lead to the same information. This is not like flat
structures (like a table of contents) or simple hierarchies (like an
outliner) or random hypertext links. These all take a lot of time
and reading to find the solutions to problems. I am just starting to
use wikis, so I don't even know if the wiki form could support such a
Having the docs and examples organized this way would get me coming
back to such a site as my first choice for information, and I would
desire to contribute to it. I am sure it would be quite compelling
for newbies and experienced scripters alike.
