Hi Don

I've already put a couple things on sascommunity; there's one on how to ask a statistics question, and I put up one of my presentations. You could use those as examples.

For me, it's more a question of how I can either find things people want to know that I might be willing to help with, or, find things I want to know, that are already posted, or find pages I might want to edit.

One thing that's key, I think (and that I don't know how to do) is to add links to other sascommunity pages, or to other sources. I'm sure that this information exists somewhere on sascommunity.....
