Where to put new (or old) DIY projects.

(1/12) > >>

Bryce:
Hi All,
      I have a few hardware projects that I designed over the years, that have never been put on the interwebs. I joined the CPCWiki not only to add my general knowledge of all things CPC, but also to possibly release my designs into the WWW. The only problem I have is that there isn't really a place for DIY projects on the Wiki, although there are some DIY projects scattered throughout the Wiki. My question is, should I/we/somebody create a Hardware DIY section where all DIY projects can be found, or where should one sort these items?

Bryce.

Just in case anyones interested, the first (easiest to document) projects are 'Converting an MP1 to an MP2' and 'Getting Scart quality on an LCD/Plasma TV' (Which I built this week after discovering that my Scart cable doesn't work on my new TV), which I will post as soon as I know where I should put them.

Octoate:
It would be great to see more DIY projects in the CPC Wiki. Currently some of the DIY articles are linked in the peripherals article, but if the number of DIY hardware will increase in the future it would make sense to add an own DIY article. However, we should create a DIY category to mark the current articles.

Bryce:
In the Peripherals section alone, there are already 7 or so DIY projects which could be moved to a DIY Page. My suggestion would be to add a menu link in the Hardware menu on the main page, maybe grouped together with Reapir, ie: a "Repair and DIY" section. I have a good few projects I could add to the section and we could start a Do-it-yourself repair section with fault finding tips and step-by-step guides... Just a suggestion.

Run with it. Your suggestion is good and I think you should continue.

Yes! Great idea! I only can encourage to do it that way! Ride on ;-)
