Yes, I've been following your posts. I'm not sure what the technical interests are of most users. It varies often; byref function returns were popular for a while, then it was ImageCreate/ImageDestroy, then function pointers, etc.
Most users probably just want to know how to use it, but more importantly, why to use it. For example, I think primary purpose of new operator in C++ is to allocate memory and call the constructor. delete, obviously destructor and deallocate. But in C++ it is generalized to every kind of type, including arrays. In fbc we have fixed & resizable array container types, so why would we want to use new/delete?
The articles you have been writing have the content that could maybe one day fill in some of the gaps of the wiki/manual. And there's some wiki pages that have very technical information that only makes sense after reading some other pages first. So the order of understanding plays some role in how technical a reader might perceive the information.
