What belongs in UserBase

KDE UserBase is the home for users and enthusiasts of KDE software. It provides high quality information for end users on how to use KDE applications.

UserBase is the central point of contact for end users looking for help using KDE applications or for any other user-oriented information about KDE-related issues. It provides task-oriented help how to achieve user's goals, application-oriented info to learn more about the applications a user uses or tips and tricks to make user's life easier and more pleasant. Information on userbase should be polished and stable. It should not require deep technical knowledge or being familiar with the community. Contributions by users are very welcome.
