- The basics
- What JS is
- How to ask a JS question
- How to learn more JS
- Awesome previous questions
- Useful links, tools, specs...
What more could they ask for, really? It's nearly the combination of things we endless tell newbs in the chat room or in the questions they ask -- like, endlessly, asking what jsFiddle is, how do you use it, what's JSON, why doesn't JSONwork... again, and again, and again.
Wait a minute--we have an awesome resource on it. Maybe we need to just edit it. Or tell more of them it's there.
Okay, so I told a bunch of newbs about it. Turns out the new newbs don't know about it because... they're new, and nobody told them about it, and they didn't see it. So why bother improving it, if the only people who really find it are the people who aren't new to the site?
Right now, to get there I have to do this:
- List of questions, eh? I know, I'll look at more questions
- Well, that didn't work. What's this tiny nonchalant "about" link next to the tag?
- Oh wow, a page full of information.
We're effectively demoting importance of the wiki to the people it will be the most useful to.
So, what can we do on SO such that newbs will find the wiki? Because I'm really tired of explaining what jsFiddle is.
