Simon and I have made the Dreadnought Project Wiki compelling enough that I am on the cusp of redirecting the domain so that the Wiki is the home page.

We tried moving to the customary Wiki editing model in which people can register and start editing, and the flow of spam started right up. This prompted us to back-pedal to the policy of "if you'd like to help, contact us and impress upon us that you are indeed interested in the subject matter, what you are most interested in contributing, and what resources if any you bring".

I'd really hope that some of the BBS people would step forward and ask for a Wiki account and editing privileges.

In particular, we need people who would like to try to bring our coverage of German subjects up to a fraction of the depth the British side now enjoys. To a lesser extent, US, Japan, AH, Italy, France, etc need the same sort of a champion.

It is less vital that volunteers know a lot about Wiki stuff... the basics are easy and Simon and I will help you learn.

Please contact me via email or by using the contact page.
