What if on the main page
or other location there was a section for often asked/discussed questions and how to's?
These could be basic frame building ideas taken from various threads (1 2 3 4 5
). I'm thinking something like; here are some choices for the frame base (pipe); fittings; decking; oar towers; shade (Bimini Top/Umbrella); seats; etc. (I would love to help create this one)
Others could be: favorite river beverages (white wine
, red wine
, beer), camp games
, packing checklist, rigging ideas, favorite trips organized by length, coolers; etc.
These could be wikis where any user could create a new one and others could build on it. These would be like threads but a brief overview and give users ideas where to start. I don't ever want to remove the discussions but have a base point for ideas.
I first found this site looking for frame building ideas and was able to formulate ideas after searching and reading through threads. I wish there was a place where one could look at to get a quick "lesson" as to what can be found in these threads without having to read all 10 pages of "More Games With Frames
". (One of my favorite threads by the way)
I am not a web designer or engineer so I don't know how hard/costly this would be but I think it would be valuable. I just did a search looking for "how to add a wiki to site
" and TWiki - the Open Source Enterprise Wiki and Web 2.0 Application Platform
came up. They state these (amongst other) uses:
- To replace a static intranet. Content is maintained by the employees, thus eliminating the "one webmaster syndrome" of outdated and insufficient intranet content.
- As a knowledge base and FAQ system.
