Re: How to Get Started / Guidelines
No problem at all for asking questions, guys. I understand your being wary about the program. Don hasn't been on here for too long and isn't well known yet, even by the moderators, tho we have been carrying on a dialog with him regarding this project for a few weeks now. He has explained it to us in the Moderators Forum and it does sound like it will be a good product once finished. He does seem like an upstanding fellow, as all the folks associated with VS have turned out to be. Like I said in my other post, the way I understand it, all the members here will have access to the published works. Not only from MTF, but from MyLawnMowerForum, Outdoor Power Equipment site, Car forums, Truck forums, Motorcycle Forums, etc.... What will be nice is that a lot of the projects just might interchange with our forum, such as painting, powdercoating, some steps taken in engine rebuilding, sand blasting, etc. Heck, I think they even have a site devoted to horses and dogs, if I am not mistaken. So, with all that information available under one umbrella, I think it will be a very handy tool. As Ranchkingron mentioned, tho, Don will have to be careful on using the submitted works. A hint or tip could be published that goes totally against correct procedures, and lead to possible damage to a readers project. I am sure there are safeguards in place to proof read the submitted works, but if not it would be a good idea.
To sum it up, basically as best I can, it is taking info that we all freely post here on MTF in the forums and occasionally get made into stickies, and sharing them with members who are as enthusiastic about other forums as we are with ours. Don't think that can be all bad, personally. Might even drag in some new membership here when they see how smart, intelligent, and friendly we are on MTF!
