h4. Explore the wiki.
* The wiki is laid out in [Spaces] and sub-spaces. Generally a FAI commission will have one top level space and a number of sub-spaces. Wiki users may also have set up their own [personal space|personal spaces].
* The root of all global spaces is the {link-to:dashboard}Dashboard{link-to} and there is a link to this in the _breadcrumbs_ 'trail' at the top of every wiki page.
* You can access users' personal spaces from the main menu: view --> other pages --> people directory.
* Depending on the [groups|User groups] you are a member of you will have more [permissions] in some spaces than others. By default everyone is a member of the *confluence-users* group and by default members of this group have permission to view and make comments on every page. You have total control over your personal space.
* The entire list of spaces in the wiki is:

{subspaces:style=plain|sort=title|addlink=true|displayEmptyMessage=false}

h4. Enjoy!
