    Hi Kamal!

    Can you give us some more details on what's so annoying and tedious. We would love to know so that we can try to make things better and easier!

    (you can also send a private message to me through my screen name on these discussion boards...)

    best regards

    This is a matter of different feasts for different beasts.

    A Wiki artilce is normally one or more pages long while a discussion board is very short. So the interface on one is meant to be quick and simple to no inhibit the process while the other expects more forethought and multiple editing after the original post.

    The new Wiki editor has made formatting a Wiki article easier. One thing I'm working on is more templates for How To and such so you can create a basic layout and only need to add your own data.

    Let me know what we can do better.

    Wiki is made up all such things. So get habituated with it.
    Sometimes you may consider to edit particular paragraph only, instead of whole article, which may subsequently lessen your annoyance.
