    Do you mean add a category rather than a page Munnkeyman? I'm in 'edit' mode in the Dept of Transport section but can't see an 'add page' button/option.

    Sorry if I'm being thick..

    Not at all Capt it's a bit of a minefield to be honest.
    The add page button is only visible when you are out of the edit mode.
    On the main page the 'Add page' link is in the middle of the page on the second navigation bar.(Just to the right and below the 'Political World Discussion' Link

    I hear that.

    Wikia is rather slow at the moment and it can be quite tiresome.
    They're upgrading at the moment so it could be slow for a couple of days.

    Its one of those where if I wander off for a while it'll unclog the mind and I'll spot where I was going wrong ... long day.

    Once I get sorted once though I'll be grand after that.

    Just a word of support and admiration to you both for building this information bank for all of us. I am so impressed and grateful - I am already stunned by the scale of the enquiry. All the best with your ambitious project.

    I note some of the organisations listed may come under the umbrella of 'state assets' (family silver) while others may seem just a drain on the exchequer but are delivering great services. I don't mean you to further subdivide the organisations on this basis but just to note the difference.

    Ta Munkeymann and I'l bring those in on my list as a starter for ten in the morning and then take a canter at DoT on the wiki.

    How do Spectabilis I was just thinking the same thing there earlier that we should be careful not to blackguard anyone doing decent work and I will be very careful when following various lines this work will throw up not to do anyone down.

    Thats the trick of the quangocracy though ... the Fianna Fail hibernation chambers.

    There will be good people doing good work in the community for no little or no reward and they should be honoured for that .. but even with the bit of work we've done so far I can smell the rats in the barn as it were.

    I cannot help thinking just looking at the alphabetical list that it would be worth my checking the Snip Nua report as well and seeing where Colm McCarthy's pen rested and where it moved on.

    I can see immediately it is obvious that there is a shadow government buried in the undergrowth of this lot. Some of the money I've seen already is shocking- some quango chairmen are earning as much as the British Prime Minister.

    Some 90 appointments were made recently and that will be Fianna Fail hiding their pals or party members. They need to be rooted out or at least exposed to sunlight.

    I'm denied a vote. But I'm going to have a say one way or the other.

    Just adding in your local authorities list here Munnkeyman and will bring forward a clean trio of posts to make it easier for the forum to see where I am with it. Will then take a run at the wiki- think I know where I was going wrong but we'll see in a while.

    And we were to see another report from him this month on the state assets - many/all of them on your list. Clearly it has been shelved.

    Quangos A-D Can you think of a Quasi-Non-Governmental Organisation we've left out? Or have you spotted a duplicate/error? Feedback most welcome. In tandem with this A-Z list our citizen-journalist colleague Munnkeyman is compiling a Wiki detailing such bodies broken down by relevant Government Department. Should you wish to contribute to the work either here or on the wiki (link below) whether it is a forgotten quango, appointment or a suggestion please feel free.

    jumping babby jesus do I hate the technical side of websites and now wikis ... Munnkeyman is there any chance we could try a different tack?

    How about you just set up the link pages to the quangos under a Dept and then I'll pile in and add the names and text?

    I just don't think like IT or site constructors and its driving me crackers. Reminds me of a rotten experience some years back when some consultancy crowd in our office arrived and started banging on about html ... told them to arse off in the end.

    Loathe mucking about with creating pages and linking them and so on so refuse to get involved in it at work
