== GETTING STARTED: FOR INTERVIEWERS AND INTERVIEWEES ==
 
 
 
Well, how the heck does one get started here?
 
 
 
I suggest you resist the same initial urge that I had to make this complicated. :)
 
 
 
'''''Keep it simple and straightforward.''''' When looking at a section, what are the questions that first come to mind? Those are probably the starting point for creating topics within a section.
 
 
 
As you read through the topics in a section, the questions and recollections that first come to your mind are probably the best starting points for fleshing out each topic.
 
 
 
Keep in mind the same basic questions that any journalist would use: ''WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHEN? WHY? HOW?''
 
 
 
 
 
'''''You are actively encouraged to place topic entries inside ANY section.''''' So, for example, if you happen to have an itch to list out all of the fly-ins you've ever heard of, pop into the "Events" section and add those to the list to be filled out at a later date.
 
 
 
 
 
'''''If you're a Section Editor,''''' I'm delegating responsibility for building the logical framework for your section to ''you''. That also includes writing a brief bio about yourself to put into a [[People]] entry. (If you're too shy, contact me and I'll write something up for you.)
 
 
 
I need people (other than me) to start editing each of these sections so I can turn my attentions to soliciting, gathering, and editing [[10/25 Project]] interviews.
 
 
 
 
 
'''''Never edited a wiki before?''''' Start with the "General Wiki Resources" listed below. In case you're curious, we're running [http://www.mediawiki.org MediaWiki], so I've also included some MediaWiki-specific information below.
 
 
 
Now let's get to work!
