There's now a link to the wiki under the "Resources" tab of the forum.

I just this a.m. got the ability to upload pictures turned on.
Now to figure out how to use it. :) (It's actually not too hard).

My idea is to have a page with a specific topic, with relevant information or posts copied over (or fresh writing) at the top, then links with short descriptions to related information, if appropriate, underneath. The idea being a person with a question or interest, could visit that page and obtain the needed information, then "read on" if they desire.

If that doesn't make sense, or there are other ideas out there... let me know!

Good work Curtis.
Are you going to write something up on the picture upload process, once you have it figured out? I would definitely need detailed instructions...I am sure
:)

I like the idea of a page per topic with an article and then links and attributions..

We just have to figure out how we can get anyone to write anything. So far, there is not much up there other than the links I tossed on there (with a very few from a couple of others).

I guess an alternative would be to compile excerpts from the forums. At least the writing has been done. Then it is a matter of copying and pasting. Can the WIKI share photo links with the main forum? At least this material exists and we could begin to get some useful content going and maybe get more attention... and possibly input. I could do some work on that part is we decide that it is a good idea.

Another thing we could think about is setting up the pages with things that we would like covered, then asking people for input on those specific topics. Sometimes it is difficult to just come up with a topic of interest to write on. If we cover that part, maybe we could get more participation.

Just a few thoughts.

Yea, I'm going to create an instruction page for how to post to the wiki, once I get the photos figured out.

We're thinking along the same lines, pulling excerpts from the forum. I don't know about the photo links, but I think they'll have to be reloaded into the wiki. (I tried copying a forum post with a photo link, and it didn't work).

I think, once a format is established, others will start to contribute. :)

Thanks for doing this Curtis. Now we just need content. We have lots of imaginative folks out there with lots of experience, we just need them to write some of it down.

I played with the WIKI a bit last night. It is pretty easy to use once you know a few of the basics.

Give it a try you guys and gals...
