    But it's a bit more specific than that - it's But if the people who run it are happy that's fine.

    He who receives a good turn should never forget it; he who does one should never remember it.

    Any guidance on how to create entries in the Wiki, and the difference between books, chapters, and pages? I can't figure how to insert anything except at the root of the categories Magician created.

    I have an edit on Beaver Scouts that has been awaiting moderation for over a week now...

    Is this something I should be worried about?? : )

    Roger's almost right, it wasn't that they couldn't control us (although we did have a tiresome insistence on standards), more the fact that they wouldn't really join with us in putting content on what was after all the TSA's site and not ours.
    Hey ho, water under the bridge..
