My comment three sections below about Grand Wiki tour applies here also. As for MediaWiki tour, I've no objections to adding WikiFur though I'll need to work out where exactly to place it in the tour.

We probably fit somewhere close to HomestarRunner? or MemoryAlpha. I have a few comments myself about the Grand Wiki tour, but they apply generally, so I'll put them over on the discussion page. --Laurence "GreenReaper" Parry

Thanks for submitting this. The Grand tour is reserved for the big vibrant wikis that have been around for a good while. The international tour is for wikis that have a big international flair to them. You might want to talk to MarkDilley about the Eclectic tour. You still want to go between Homestar Runner and Wiki Travel in the MediaWiki tour? --SeanFennel

Yes, please. And electric tour seems to be a good variant also. Sasha

Heike (or Michael), thank you for your entry and for preparing the TBH page. For the TTCT you need to prepare an additional English TourBusStop page. Are there special positions where you would preferred to be linked in? -- HelmutLeitner

OK, done. For the TTCT I'd prefer to NOT be a neighbour of YpsilantiEyeball?, because it uses a DynDns? hostname and a weird port. (And doesn't work at the moment.) Otherwise, I don't have preferences.

Thomas, thank you for the preparations. Sorry, the GRAND-WIKI-COMMUNITY-TOUR is only for big estabished communities, WIKI-DEVELOPERS-TOUR for developers of wiki engines. I would suggest the ECLECTIC-WIKI-TOUR (talk to MarkDilley) and later - when the wiki has grown a bit - to the SOFTWARE-DEVELOPERS-TOUR. What do you think? -- HelmutLeitner

Sorry, I did not realize the GRAND, thought it was the BIG tour, not the tour to BIG wikis; my fault. But isn't WIKI-DEVELOPERS a matching tour? I mean, GeboGebo is a Wiki-Engine in development. I'll talk to MarkDilley, thanks for your advice, Helmut. -- ThomasFriebel?

Sounds good. Maybe HTMLWiki can also be added after or before CssDiscussWiki 'cos the close relationship between HTML and CSS. --[Progman]

Peter, I forgot that the SOFTWARE-DEVELOPERS-TOUR is an English tour. If you want to join it, please prepare an English TourBusStop page. You could connect these pages in a similar way as we did on DseWiki. As a first step, I'll suggest you now to the GCT. -- HelmutLeitner

Very cool idea, thanks for letting us know about it! I'll defer to you regarding placement in the route; I agree that the ECLECTIC-WIKI-TOUR is probably most appropriate. Take care -- Jack

Dave, welcome. Typically we expect that wiki is well established and living as a community before it is joined to the TourBus. The ideal time would be 3-6 months after founding, when you have 10-30 contributors and 300-500 pages. The only tour for very young wikis is the ECLECTIC-WIKI-TOUR. MarkDilley is the driver for it, but he's current absent. Neither the SOFTWARE-DEVELOPER-TOUR nor the GRAND-WIKI-COMMUNITY-TOUR will fit very well. I don't see that you are writing about SW development. The GWCT is the backbone for old and large communities that are meant to connect to large semantic areas. To go for it is not impossible, but it would mean to grow for 1-3 years to at least 100-200 contributors and about 1000-3000 pages, and become the center for wikis about something like "management and organization". If you have grown a little, you could join to the long and winding Route 66. What do you think? -- HelmutLeitner

Helmut, I can definitely wait until FacMan grows up a bit more. Thanks for filling me in on the traditions and norms of the TourBus. My hope is that FacMan will grow into the hub of information for facilitators and managers, but it has a long way to go before then. --DaveHoover

Dave, I'm happy that you are not too disappointed. If you need information, help, or advice to reach your ambitious goal - that's what MeatBall is for. -- HelmutLeitner

Does the administrative contact have to be a single person? If not, you should use (wikiadmin at aniki.info) so that you get all admins at once.

You can also give more than one names or point to a page listing administrators. It's just in case we need to contact someone that acts for the community. Do you prefer a special position within the GERMAN-COMMUNITY-TOUR? Between BücherWiki and JuraWiki? -- HelmutLeitner

Between BücherWiki and JuraWiki sounds fine. I've changed the contact address to the admin address. This way you should always reach somebody with a more technical background (we coordinate server administration through local newsgroups, your mail will appear there). If a mail is not of "technical" nature, it will be forwarded to the Aniki user's mailing list. -- Christian

Hi Ted, I think a great place to put this wiki is after the AndStuff wiki. If that works, I will do so by August 5. Best, MarkDilley

Sure, Mark. That's great. What else do I have to do on my end to make this work? --TedErnst

Ted, Umm, I will try to do it by August 5 (it should have read :-) - I will get to it, but if you want, please link it up! ;-) MarkDilley

I think I've done it correctly. I changed the AndStuff page to point to ChicagoHumanist, I made the ChicagoHumanist page point to Nomic and then I changed the map here on Meatball so ChicagoHumanist is in the right spot. Could you please check to make sure I did it all right? -- Perfecto! ;-) md

Dan, another tour that fits your wiki is the USEMOD-WIKI-TOUR and in the long ran I see a potential for an ANIMAL-WIKI-TOUR (or ANIMAL-KEEPER-TOUR or ANIMAL-LOVER-TOUR). Typically I do not add wikis that have been just founded, because nine out of ten wiki founders run out of steam when they find out that their wiki needs - perhaps like an animal - dayly personal care for an unforeseeable time. Please keep going, grow a small community of members (5-10 are enough), and I'll join your wiki at the end of March. -- HelmutLeitner

Yes, I understand that and I also want to see that the Wiki is developing, but just a question, did I submit all information right here, ist it properly done? DanKoehl

BusManagement comment (currently only IMHO -- hl):

It appears that Netscape 4.7 isn't loading the CSS stylesheets. I tested with Mozilla, Opera & IE, I'm afraid I assumed Netscape users (such as myself) had moved to Mozilla. There isn't much I can do short of reverting to the UseModWiki 's built-in headers. Is there a way to make perl browser-sniff? Those bus routes sound great, BTW.

Netscape 4.7 loads CSS, but there are a number of portability problems. I'm no CSS guru, only worked around a number of smaller problems on some of my wikis that use CSS. I vagely remember the background problem, this should be easy to solve (IIRC one takes it from body-tag, the other from body-style). You have the three header parts in "div"-tags (left, center, right), which NS47 puts below each other. What if you use a normal table? I think there are quite a number of NS4X-users out there (IIRC about 10-15%). I only saw that you use Javascript. Be careful to put no vital functionality into Javascript, because a lot of users turn off Javascript because of security concerns. -- hl

fixed. Netscape4.7 will load the built-in UseModWiki header. The content CSS looks ugly, but not disastrous. Really, NetscapeMustDie?.
can someone from BusManagement with NetScape installed please verify this? Thanks! -- ip

JavaScript is used for the "Quick Navigation" pop-up menu in the upper-right corner of the pages; it naturally won't work at all if JavaScript is deactivated or not present, but then again the "Quick Navigation" menu isn't critical functionality either. I'm speaking here as somebody who used to use Netscape 4.7 until I got so annoyed by its bugs that I moved on to Opera; and I've been browsing a long time with everything but HTML/CSS disabled, so I can understand where you're coming from. :-) -- MichaelBuschbeck (a.k.a.

Stephanie, sorry for my delayed answer (I was for a weekend to Salzburg). Currently it's hard for me to find the right tours for you. Sooner or later there will be a PHPWIKI-TOUR, that's easy. IMO you should perhaps be on the MULTILINGUAL-WIKI-TOUR and the HUMANITIES-TOUR (both are in preparation). What do you think about this? -- HelmutLeitner

No worry - both seem good for me... let's say whichever comes first, how about that? -- StephanieBooth
