Hi Alfonse, I'm moving the Benchmark page ( to the wiki. Where would you suggest we link to it from the main page of the wiki, or would we? Also, I would like to move the mailing list and newsgroups page from the main site to the wiki. Currently the best place I can see is under Getting Started->External Links->Other. Which seems rather buried. Any suggestions of how to structure that better? Thanks Webmaster (talk) 10:47, 11 March 2013 (PDT)

These pages can be added to the "Other useful information" section at the bottom of the main page. The mailing list/etc page should probably be part of a general "getting help" resource page. I'm working on a more Wikipedia-like restructuring of the main page (see Test Main Page). I could see it going into the sidebar on that page once it's up-and-running.

Hey Alfonse, I followed your advice on updating files and added information on the matter to the webmaster's talk page. Just in case you want t follow. thokra (talk) 06:51, 4 January 2013 (PST)


I only ask that you give constructive criticism or fix the problem instead of merely complaining. I'm not going to devote hours of my time trying to help people like myself looking for answers if that's the case.

Hi, I've added a lot of information to the User:ElFarto/OpenGLBM page, and was looking for some thoughts on it. elFarto 04:52, 30 September 2011 (PDT)
Here's the thing. Unless you intend to actually implement this API (perhaps on top of Linux and AMD's low-level stuff), I don't see what the point of discussing it is. Even if this API were the holy grail, it isn't going to be implemented by anyone unless you do the work yourself. So any discussion would be Sophistry; if nothing's going to come of it, what's the point of speculating?
However, if you insist, I have added some commentary on the idea. Alfonse 11:30, 30 September 2011 (PDT)

I had a previous comment, but I found out it was correct. Thanks, great job.
