  1. exclaim Use and improve the docs

    1. Search the documentation first and read the FAQQuestion before asking questions.
    2. When asking questionsQuestion update the documentation when you get the answers.
      When answering questions please reference the docs/FAQs/etc. This will increase the visibility (and maybe overall usage) a valuable resource.
    3. Those who complain about the documentation are welcome to update its pagesQuestion to make it better.
  2. exclaim Report bugs or feature enhancement requests
    Verbose mode:
    1. A bug only exists on record if it's reported in the bugtrackerQuestion.
    2. When in doubt, file a bug report or request a feature/enhancement at http://dev.tiki.org/Make-a-wishQuestion.
    3. If you can't code yourself your own enhancement ideas don't expect that your request will be implemented in short if ever. You might be interested in hiring a coderQuestion to do that for you if you think that things are getting done much more slowly than you would need/like.
