Gentoo Wiki


2006-01-03 - TLAs

Over the past year the wiki has grown at an ever increasing pace. In 2005 the traffic increased almost four-fold and we are now receiving just over 30,000 unique visitors per day. we have received many emails. So, in the new year I and the the other admins hope to address some of the emails we have received and attempt to solve as many problems as possible and incorporate as many suggestions as possible.

One common suggestion/complaint refers to the inability to search for words that consist of 3 letters or less. This is how the wiki is setup to prevent some seriously taxing searches. I cannot allow for three letter searches without hurting the wiki's performance. There are a lot of computer-related TLA's (three letter acronyms), however. So, to solve this problem I am suggesting the creation of a lot of new wiki articles. For this I will need the help of as many people as possible.

If you wish to help check out this list of TLA's and either add a TLA to it or create an article on one of the requested ones. This would be a great help to us. I will try to fill out as many of these as I can personally.

Happy New Year to everyone too.
