Restoring front page after spam
The front page has suffered spam attacks lately. You may restore it by doing the following:
- Select history tab
- Select the time&date-links backwards until a healthy front page is found
- Select the edit tab at the last healthy front page; copy the entire source code from the edit window
- Go back to the current (i.e. spammed) front page; select edit and paste the correct source code over the spam code; save page
- Check result; Have a cup of coffee if OK

The write up for Garage Band is great, is there anything like it for Audacity?

PlugIn / plug-in
The front page has instances of both. I don't really care which is deemed canonical, but I was trying to search the page for instances of plugin/plug-in so consistency would be a good thing. Perhaps PlugIn was written in camel case out of habit from other wiki systems, which treat those as WikiWords? But MediaWiki doesn't care, so just pick one and standardize it.

Hi! We have searched for a way to undo the silencing effect. The only thing we've discovered so far is to use the undo option or reimport the file. Is there a simpler way?
Is it possible to block regular vandals? It's not good to go two days with porn-spam on the front page. Also, some of the links on the main page don't contain fingerspaces. Should they be added? Tommylommykins 10:11, 9 November 2006 (PST)
removing vocals how to
I don't remember how to remove vocals using audacity. Memory loss could be age related or I killed those brain cells drinking! I seem to remember creating some OK tracks for kareoke. Anybody out there can give me a tip? (Besides laying off the booze!)
Split the stereo track and change them both to mono. Choose the right (Bottom) track. Invert the track. You have KARAOKE!
Just did a minor facelift on the Main Page. I needs a lot more work still!

There are really a lot of orphaned pages. The only ways to get to these pages is by hitting the "Random page" link in the navigation bar, by hitting "Special pages" then "Orphaned pages" or by seeing them in the "Recent changes" list soon after they've been made. Someone in charge of the wiki might want to check these pages and either delete them or create links where they would be appropriate.
(That really was the long way of saying that people really aren't going to see those pages)
You will also find that users have created pages for themselves which is redundant. We have user pages that are linked when using our signature with 3 or 4 tilde like this ~~~~

I think the Multilingual section should be moved to the upper part of the page,
because a person that doesn't speak English, the first time he will come to the wiki, might think:
"there's nothing for me here", and leave without bothering to scroll down the page.
exporting WAV files
how can I adjust the pause at the start of a WAV file I export? - it seems to be set at 2 seconds but I can't see how to adjust it.
