How you can support ARMwiki

I'm not asking for money, I'm asking for expertise.

I grew up using the ARM on old RISC OS computers, played with the ARM926 in my PVR, and am now the owner of a Beagle xM (OMAP3730, ARM Cortex-A8). There is a lot of stuff I don't know, and maybe even a bunch of idiotic mistakes on my part.

If you can help, please do!


Gaining the ability to edit

The only specific requirement, other than the style guide is that to try to curb spambot behaviour and random vandalism, you must be a registered user with a confirmed email address, and ask for edit rights.

This is simple, and free. Simply click the "Log in/Create account" link on the upper right. Choose to create an account. Provide a username, a password, and an email address.
Then log in with those credentials, go to your preferences (top of the screen, towards the right) and ask for the confirmation email to be sent to you. When the email arrives, click on the link provided to flag your email address as valid. Then simply send the administrator an email asking for edit rights (and as a guard against spam, drop in a line or two about your favourite ARM feature).

I apologise profusely for this final step, it is not really in the spirit of a wiki, but then neither is spamming rubbish about "toe rings" and the like.

It might seem like a bit of a hassle, but you only ever need to do this once. Why not do it now and get it over with? ;-)

Hint! While you're there, you might like to go back to your preferences and tweak things the way you like them?

ARMwiki vs HeyRick

If you really want to donate...

Please consider making a donation to the Japanese Red Cross. There is a special part on their site at http://www.jrc.or.jp/eq-japan2011/index.html with information on the recovery efforts after the earthquake/tsunami in March 2011. Believe me, they need your help more than I need cookies...

There is a lot of information about the funds raised, their distribution, and the effects our generosity is having, and the information on the page linked is all in English. So please, remind the Japanese affected that their government might be about as inept as our own governments, but we - ordinary people - can do our little bits to assist; across boundaries, languages, and cultures.


Thank you.
