Yeah, I clicked that. I was really hoping it would be like MTBR, but the forum format is really annoying. That's why I'd like to see Vital expand their review section.

This is a great idea.  I'd be willing to help out with anything I can.  I think that sheep should set up a sub domain on bikeguide (wiki.bikeguide.org), that is, if he has the extra bandwidth.  I'd be more than willing to install a wiki application, and make a theme for it so it fits with BMX.  I know that there are a few other designers/developers on here, so I know that they could help with that as well.  One thing that would worry me about this wiki though, is that people who don't particularly like bikeguide, can just edit it however they feel.  A good way to combat this would to hook the login from the forums to the wiki page, so that only bikeguide members can edit the page.  Don't get me wrong, I know that it would be more thorough with more people, but then one little punk could just come in and wipe out everything.  We could also ditch the login idea and just have comprehensive back-ups, probably with Cron, unless someone knows of a wiki app that does this automatically.  I think bikeguide should defiantly go through with this idea.  Good job OP.

Id make another donation for a wiki.bikeguide.org

With some diligence, vandalism isn't an issue. You can just periodically check the changelog and restore and vandalized articles.

I'm down to donate some cash if needed to host, CAD work if needed to help illustrate and/or info if needed. I haven't posted in here much but I am very interested.

Even if we don't get get it hosted here, it would be cool if sheep could throw a link up on the main page, and onto the title bar of the forums.
Barring that we should chip in for an ad banner here.

Well, I guess I'll grab some coffee.  I see some late nights coming up for the people who help out on this one.  It needs to be done.

I am glad to see so many of the more respected members of BG interested in this! I made a spreadsheet listing different components and potential articles for them. Please edit, add, remove, change wording, whatever you feel needs doing. If you know a good article or video for something already, post a link with the word "done" under either article or video.
