Start a "How-To" section anyone?

Hey Guys,
A LOT of other forums for bikes, vehicles and other hobbies etc... have HOW-TO sections. There is some intermittent advice here and there when people ask a question, but I think it would be great if we created some HOW-To's for all the projects that we do. We could make an image chack account to host pics just for fireblades. Move some of the Posts that have explanations in them with some pics and we'd have a pretty bad arse forum.

There already is... Check the "Articles" section. Useful How-To, Tips, etc threads are moved there as needed.

Intermittent advice? Search harder!

Nothing against this place, I love it. I already read the articles section.... it could use some updating. I'm talking about write-ups with great details and pics. ummmmm, yah... search harder... never thought of that. searching harder won't help when there isn't an abundance of info or consolidated info.

When people create write ups with details and pictures, they will be moved to the appropriate articles section.

If you search hard enough, you'll find enough "How-To" information...

I hate it when it tells me I can't give rep because it's been too soon.

Re: Start a "How-To" section anyone?

Thanks for the bashing or tainting of my post.... Are we starting a burn war?....lol. I don't care to use smilies etc.... so I'm probly not going to achieve "coolness" in your cronie's eyes. I was just looking for some people that are interested in doing some more how-to's. Not for someone to waste space on my post. I'll put up a how-to on a couple things, but I never claimed that I knew everything (thus my need for how-to's). Why don't you spend more time on making that kind of input instead of trying to impress kids half your age with sarcasm?


Mods, you can delete this thread if you like, it's gotten way off topic.

Re: Start a "How-To" section anyone?

well its not WAY off topic yet. And we have all helped people here with what they need to do in order to get their bike up and running. How To's would love to do some writeups on the items that I have taken care of... just don't have that much devotion so I share my knowledge when the problem arises for someone else

Re: Start a "How-To" section anyone?

You saved it!... lol. I'm not disputing that you guys don't help people, hell I don't even have a how-to that i am looking for right now.

I did the same thing on my repairs. On all the work I did on it, I forgot to take some pics etc... But I've got some tune-up work coming so I'll do those. I can't think of anything that I need to do right now.. I was just looking to read up on what people do to their blades.

ps- how the hell have you made 3k posts in 5 months?... lol. That's amazing.

I try to take pics too. I was changing my chain/sprockets and remembered my camera after I was coverd in grease and chain lube. I still managed to get enough off my hands to get the camera and snap a few pics.
