Exclamation Asking for your help with Stromtrooper Wiki

A few weeks ago Fyrman and I started a Wiki site for Stromtroopers.
An attempt to create a complete and dynamic content site/index for all things related to v-stroms.

http://stromtrooper.wikispaces.com/

It has been a lot of work, but we have some nice progress.

That been said, we need your help.

Please do one of the following:
1. Add more content
2. Modify existing content
3. Fix any incorrect facts or bad styling or typos
4. Provide us some feedback

This project is for this community. We've put lots of hours into it (and will put more) but have nothing but good will as our motifs.

BlackLab, GreyWolf, Kiwi, Voltar, RedBeans and the many other contributes here - I'm sure you guys can help.

Thanks!

Looks great! I'm no mechanic or anything so can't tell anyone how to reassemble their pile of parts but if I can help anyway (pics of my K8 or it's bits and pieces maybe?) then let me know.

Keep up the good work.

You don't have to be a mechanic.
Just pick a topic you know about, and add or modify content to it.
Even if you don't have any topic you're very knowledgeable about, just read the existing topics and see if you find issues or things which can be improved.

I'm already pretty busy. Besides, it won't let me use greywolf.

The FAQs at VSRI is one of my favorite places go-to places and I see parts lifted for some of the Wiki. I like referring people to VSRI stuff a lot and use some snippets and pics but I'd rather give give credit where credit is due. The Wiki just didn't grab me. I played with something similar at the Yahoo DL650 group and found it unfulfilling. I'd rather work person to person.

Ok, I see.
Such an Encyclopedia would allow everybody to have a central organized data repository, but I respect your decision

Credits are given, but not in a 100% ordered fashion
Everything is very drafty

I could do history as I have it from Peter and then added to it. I also translated parts of the Alpenkonig competition.

I have nothing against the Wiki and might have some time available at intervals for some benign editing, though I would not be much of a contributor -- there's damn little that ever goes wrong with my Vee.

However, like greywolf, I couldn't join using dancer. Nor did it recognize the supposedly-already-existing dancer (really?) as being me.

Is there something that needs fixed? I'm not going to fight to get a foot in the door.
