This site is new and is currently in a state of flux. Topics will get reorganised. Pages will be renamed, split, joined and reordered.

Don't worry about making mistakes. These can be edited out later, by yourself or others.

If you are unsure about whether your changes will "stuff up" a page, make a small batch of changes and then save it. If you need to rollback, click on the History tab on the top right of the page, choose the latest "best" version of the page, click on undo and save the changes.

If you are stuck, direct message me on bokkypoobah on https://daohub.slack.com, or BokkyPooBah on https://www.reddit.com. You can also click on the Discussion tab on the top of this page, add in your queries/comments, and I or someone else will pick it up eventually. If you have a specific question, edit this page and add your question to it.
