    Default How about tutorial/advice forum

    I think we need a sticky function or tutorial forum section. No talk... just a pure advice! It's hard to find it here. All buried under tons other topics.

    Thumbs up

    Good idea doc,

    I always read stuff and find it interesting. then when I come to have a problem, and I know I've read the answer somewhere on here, I'm buggered if I can find it again.

    Cheers

    I agree to some extent. The problem is that the threads tend to turn to crap once everyone puts their two cents in. If there was some way to control that it might work, though.

    What about Wiki style forum. Only one post per topic but it can be edited by senior members?!?!

    Good idea as well. I think it could be the same style. One post per topic.
    "CT6800 wiring diagram" "Simple USB DAC" etc. Description, tips....and image attached. Simple and easy to find.

    Good idea - this works well on other forums, e.g. BlueRoom

    I agree with the Wiki idea... but it would be nice to have the contributions go through a separate administrator that could filter spam-like modifications.

    The only failure of this approach is that 'there is more than one way to skin a cat' or in this case build a laser show

    When I did my alignment guide i posted it in PDF format - I was gonna convert Adams scanner tune up tutorial to the same - maybe all we need is space on FTP (which we got) plus some clear list of whats in there.

    If you need to ask the question 'whats so good about a laser' - you won't understand the answer.

    I like that idea Rob...

    Put a sub-folder on the FTP server (call it "tutorials" or something) and then index the list of documents on the server in a sticky post here on PL. Edit the post from time to time as new documents are added.
