the database, I see notifications have been sent to you as recent as a
few days ago. I'll make sure there's nothing strange on this end if
you ensure that the e-mail address in your preferences can receive
I have also made you (Jim and Mike) both sysops in the wiki. This will
allow you to delete pages, protect (lock) pages, and block users. I've
only used these functions a few times. There really isn't any other
administrative functions that I perform on the wiki.
I'll send out a list of topics for Wednesday's training session soon.
I plan on making one change to wiki functionality at that time and
will alert everyone in attendance to the change - I will begin
requiring that e-mail addresses be verified before the user can edit
or create pages. This will provide one additional level of spam
