Wiki Process

I maintain the local intranet wiki. Users register themselves and can modify any page.

The only things on the front page is a link to the "register yourself" page, and a link to the RSS feeds. Hard to get wrong.

I just got an email from our Program Manager called, "Wiki Process" where she wrote a Microsoft Word document describing how to register oneself on the wiki, and where to put things, with instructions like, "open two browsers, one to copy from, one to paste to..."

She then put the Microsoft Word document describing the Wiki Process onto a Microsoft SharePoint repository. And emailed us about it.

Apparently, if you want to use the wiki, it's easy: Ask a manager for a SharePoint link, use a Windows browser, go to SharePoint, get the latest revision of the Wiki Process document...

No joke.

::facepalm:: Welcome to the department of redundancy redundancy department. Please take three numbers and wait until they're all called, then a representative and their associates will be with you to have you fill out these three forms in triplicate so you can see a panel about your question. Seriously. It's a wiki. Not a freaking Rube Goldberg machine. :(
