Come on guys! :)

Is there really nobody out there willing to contribute?

We have 1.0.5 basically ready to go and need help with documentation. This is a great opportunity to get involved.

Feel free to PM me with questions or respond to this thread.

Looking forward to some great input!

Re:Call for 1.0.5 Documentation Help! 9 Years, 1 Month ago  
Oliver, I like to help with it but my english is not good enough for writing documentation.
But I am working some knowledgebase/faq/help component for fireboard and firemessage . It will have moderation access too, so you can edit add etc. I personally don\'t like wiki which is we are using. It is more confusing for members. So I like to keep it simple. Other side, maybe I will make a new site for fireboard documentation, dev blog, help, download etc. separate from bestofjoomla.com then our developers will be have more access.

But right now if we get a word or pdf document will be fine.

I would propose to not publish any version till the work on the documentation starts.

I will check my schedule and see if I could find few hours to contribute.

OK, let\'s start with it at least. Shouldn\'t be that hard.

What we need is shared workspace - i.e. Google docs or SVN (first should be more easy for non-tech users).
We need table of contents, where the key chapters should be covered and afterward, start writing it.

Example of table of contents could be

Fireboard Documentation

Table of contents:
1. Installation
2. Upgrade
3. Configuration
4. Sample data
5. Creation and management of boards
6. Access levels and moderation
7. User Administration
8. Uploaded files
9. Uploaded images
10. Change templates/edit CSS
11. Pruning forums
12. Synchronization of users
13. Smilies management
14. Rank management
15. Statistics
16. Frontend moderation
17. Other frontend features
18. Integration with other extensions
19. Plugins system
20. Fireboard extensions (modules, plugins)
21. Translating Fireboard

We need approximately 20 users, each of them writing ONE CHAPTER. It can not take more than 2-3 hours.

That\'s a very good start.

We will need to add:

.) Release Notes
.) Maybe something about SEO
.) FAQs

Re:Call for 1.0.5 Documentation Help! 9 Years, 1 Month ago  
Well, release notes is \"your part\".
SEO - we have a lot of people dealing with it around, almost anyone can contribute.

FAQs- that\'s the area where even the people with no time could spend 10 minutes to write one FAQ to be included. Something they suffered, found the solution and could help avoiding the users having the same problem in the future.

I will write now the sample data part in order to show to the X thousand people around, that you can\'t just demand all the time.
