'Getting started' user guide
I've been thinking that it would be good to have an 'official' guide to Diaspora for prospective users and new users. Something along the lines of the excellent Diasporial tutorials. At present we rely on sites set up by community members, and the fragility of this has just been brought home by the fact that someone has just pointed out that the tutorials (and the rest of Diasporial, apart from the home page) have been taken down.
Would anyone be up for collaborating on writing a really simple 'how-to' guide to Diaspora, along the lines of Diasporial? If so, let's get cracking.
If anyone is in touch with Kevin Kleinman, I'd be grateful if you'd ask him (a) will he be putting the tutorials back up, and (b) may we have his copy to work from, as this would save a lot of work. We could then just update it where necessary.
