With great power comes great responsibility

I just noticed that I'm now #1 on the leaderboard. Mostly because aw has been inactive.

Since that increases the chance that newcomers might click on my profile, I thought I'd add a pointer to the arc wiki: http://arclanguage.org/user?id=akkartik. FWIW..

(evanrmurphy first suggested using profile pages as poor man's documentation: http://arclanguage.org/item?id=13641)

Nice touch. BTW, Googling for 'install arc lisp' gets the wiki to the top page or close. I'm hoping that eventually we can get just 'install arc' or 'arc lisp' to do the same. Just 'arc' looks like mission impossible. :) Adding more links to the wiki will help. So listen up, all Arc-fu exponents!

Well, I added links to Arcueid to the wiki as soon as I learned of it, and will be adding links the wiki in Arcueid within the README and wherever else it makes sense to do so.

I see Wikipedia's article on Arc links to the wiki as well, although perhaps it should be amended to be more prominent than a single footnote citation.

Just added one to this blog post, as well as a link in the Try Arc nav to try and assist with this issue: http://tryarc.org/blog/how-to-install-arc

Thanks evanrmurphy, that's a good additional link to have.

Ah, good point. It should help that I updated the anarki readme to link to it yesterday.

Nice PSA, that should definitely help steer newcomers in the right direction.
