What step-by-step forum guides do you want?
« on: Wednesday, 01 February 2017, 05:46 pm »
I'm planning on making some guides (either pics or video) to show how to do certain things on the forum step-by-step.

Are there any particular things people would like to see in this regard?

And would you prefer a how to video or a series of pictures to show such things?

That's a great idea. I'm a total newbie when it comes to doing any work on the bike myself though so you don't want to hear what I need guides for. Ha.

Just a thought but maybe you could set up a dedicated 'How to...' section in the 'Technically Speaking' part of the forum that can only be added to by the Mod to avoid them being lost in the pages of other categories? People could obviously still contribute but via the mod but it would help keep things relevant and avoid multiple threads covering the same thing. Just an idea anyway.

Great work here Vlad, well done. I for one appreciate the effort you're putting into this place and how you're working hard to involve members in having an input into how it runs.

Something I could have used in my earlier years was the removal of snapped head bolts (any bolt really) with Ezy outs or similar.

Things that would definitely benefit newbies like me would be routine maintenance things that people perhaps avoid due to not having the confidence to do. The risk here is that you're just being asked to reword the Haynes manual. But for example servicing the forks and brakes.

Ok so i was misunderstood.

But it's all good a lot of that WILL be coming....

What I meant was how to operate parts of the forum itself.  Anything you have trouble with?
The gallery is obviously one I'll do.

Anything else?
