I might be afraid of my ______* knowing how much time I spend here. :sick: :whistle:

(*=insert: boss, spouse, therapist)

(I actually have a tendency to leave the window open whether I'm here or not, so it's not really a good indicator of whether I'm actually on. "He's here... why isn't he answering me?") :)

I did an edit to this page. It will likely need to be moved, as Clay had a different idea for this page, but it can be done.

wickededgeusa.com/wiki/index.php?title=K...Edge_Knife_Sharpener.

BTW CBW, those links are some that I think should be included in any sort of compilation of important historical data.

I tried for just a few minutes to figure out how to create a new page, but did not get there. There is something ccalled a community portal, maybe we can do something with that.

There is also a users guide and help applet available from the main page...once you get there. I am at work now so I can't spend much time on it right now. I will take a closer look later.

I don't see anything in the link you posted... maybe it needs admin approval.

Try that.
I followed my original link and nothing was there. I then selected "recent Changes" in the left panel under "Navigation", and it brought me to a list of three items, all by me... as I edited the thing three times (now 4 times).
Anyway, I got to my content that way.

This is brilliant. I love this idea. I was just curious how hard it would be to add to the page and it is actually a no brainer. I put in the links to the Youtube videos for the Chosera, so if you follow the link now it contains my contribution.

I suppose there is a potential for abuse by some to hijack or use the page for personal or non relevant info if not monitored or somehow controlled. But it seems like the beginning of a really great reference source.

Good luck with it, I will definitely be watching this one.

Yup... I can see it now. (What actually messed it up in the previous link was the period at the end.)

Cool. This could be a nice community effort. For now, add whatever is appropriate... I'll try and come up with a way of organizing it! :silly:

Thanks!

At some point we need to figure out how to make a new page/topic/category. This particular one was origninally setup by Clay for sharpening recomendations. I guess what we are doing is sort of in that realm, but possibly we could make a specific page tied to "Hot Links" or "Must Read Topics" or something like that.

Ok... that part I figured out. For example you can now find what has been posted here...

wickededgeusa.com/wiki/index.php?title=W...d_Edge_New_User_Info

So, maybe use this link for now to add stuff... and I'll think a bit on organization.

That's possibly the most important bit.

A WIKI normally has a page exclusively about one subject.
Then a page for another etc.

So you probably need to work out an index, then build the pages?

Trouble with WIKI's, they often get abandoned and outdated.
They are a great way to give all the answers to one question with a single link though.

I have over 11,000 posts on a tech forum here in Aus, the WIKI doesn't get a lot of use as there are always hundreds/thousands of people online who fight to answer questions first.
No WEPS thread yet. ;)
