Duly noted hahaha.  :)  You definitely read my answers very literally.

I want it to be a community resource specifically for developers using TextMate.  I spend most of my time writing code, not documentation.  So if everyone adds a little thing they find useful or a little bugfix/workaround, it will help everyone.  I will use it as a personal resource, in the same way I use Wikipedia.  Just because it is useful for me doesn't mean it won't be useful for others (and I am actively promoting making it useful for everyone who wants to use it).

By "Control Freak" I really don't mean over the content of the wiki.  I should say I'm more of a DIY guy.  If the community wants something, I don't have any problem listening or allowing other responsible people great degrees of control.  I just like to figure stuff out for myself.

BTW the tm2tips site is too linear for my tastes.  I'm familiar with it.  I can't look things up by subject like on my wiki. 

I haven't finished my site yet, I just thought I'd mention it since someone may find it useful.

Thanks for your advice everyone,
Brandon Fryslie
