Just a moment ago I was making plans for starting a few missing pages...  :)

As for actually usage of the contents, there is also some handy technical reference there - the Wiki is the first place I go to when I can't recall some of those arcane facts about file formats and modding quirks.

Yep, from this aspect it can be used as a base of "hacker" knowledge.

Pathetic or not, I forgot how to add a new article - so I had to look after in Wikipedia. ;D

Semi-OFF: the own knowledge has less and less importance, since everything is available at Wikipedia. What will the next generations do, if they lose the internet connection (disaster, war, etc.)?

WikiPedia should sell backups. I wonder how much space it would take up if all graphics were removed.
But we can't be quite sure.

Or how many pages of a printed version... (no more forests? :D)

Yesterday I started a small article with some racing advice for beginners at http://wiki.stunts.hu/index.php/Driving_tips . It is not exactly a "Driving School" feature, as the tips are quite terse and general; so there is a lot of room for expansion. Thanks to Dreadnaut for reminding me of the need for something in that vein!

In my next editing spree I intend to work on the missing pages about track elements and (custom) cars. Help with that will be welcome, too  ;)

Just wrote an article on illusion tracks: http://wiki.stunts.hu/index.php/Illusion_track . It contains a cursory explanation of what makes the effects possible and a few examples. The final example (symmetrical dual-way tracks) is, as far as I am aware of, a novelty. The examples are not very comprehensive (as of now they are geared more towards fooling the track validation as opposed to TOFF-style psychedelic craziness), so please add or suggest more illustrations  :)

Could somebody give me permissions to create an account, etc? I already wrote the article.

Come to the chat http://forum.stunts.hu/chat/index.php I'm there now :)
