Agree. You could have sections like User's Corner where macros, F9 scripts, etc. could be found, and maybe an Expert's Corner where other questions that the normal forum could handle. And of course it would be dutiful to include a repository of files (exe's or whatever) referenced by the scripts etc. I am not meaning to suggest that the Wiki become more of a file repository - no - but if someone referenced a file or utility then it should be made easy to find.

Another would be tutorials as suggested. Ztree has many many features and the Help file is good but it really requires tutorials on many subjects beginners as well as experts tutorials - how to write an F9 script, how to use a feature that the help only touches upon, How to understand and use the archiver.BB2 file, etc. many of these subjects have been dealt with in small degrees over the course of the forum, - but to get all of this in a tutorial documented form, would be great. If you need to discuss what could or needed to be changed in the Wiki, then continue to do so from the forum as it always has been.

Just my thoughts.
