One of the things a lot of the ColdFusion community members could do to improve things is... lift their game when it comes to being part of the community!
There's been a coupla examples over the last few days of this sort of thing:
Few Image functions are not shown in the Coldfusion image functions list
This URL should contain the below image function:
Rupesh commenting against bug 3678093:
cfloop does have a charset attribute which is used for reading the file. however this is missing from the documentation. This needs to be documented.
Come on adobe. Your #coldfusion documentation sucks. The code examples for cfcontinue on both cf9 and 10 don't even use it!(and even once I fixed this one, conversation continued as to how (not) good my fix actually was!)

But in all three examples the person writing is correct.
And all three examples are now fixed. Why? Because I just went in and bloody fixed them.
Participate in your community guys. If you see something in the docs that are wrong... fix 'em! It's a wiki. You can edit it.
You need to get an account with Adobe, and then be activated as a moderator, but that doesn't take long so if you use the docs, you should just go and sign-up right now, so when you next see some shortfall in the docs, you can just fix it!
Frank Jennings posted instructions on Twitter recently of what one needs to do to get appropriate permissions:
@dacCfml @Indy_Griffiths Guys, mail us at email@example.com to become ta Wiki contributor. The process would just take a few hours.So go on then... join in!

Doing my part, if you see a shortfall in the docs and can't be arsed fixing it yourself [hard stare], add a comment to the bottom of the doc page describing the issue, and send a Twitter message to @CfmlNotifier (which I keep an eye on), with the URL concerned. I'll try to look at it. NB: I only have moderator access to the ColdFusion 10 docs sorry, not the older versions.
But let's try to work on this together, eh?
