not at all, sounds great
Looks like I can find some that sell at over 400 euros, nothing I would need for a gym locker and similar. I find locks but no suitable padlocks (many passive options, not many active.)
By the looks of it, I will have nothing to post about this after all…
Have you seen this?
Yup, but I was suggesting an actual wiki, self-hosted or otherwise. Still, I definitely understand if one more thing to maintain may not be a good idea.
An actual wiki would be much easier to navigate and search content in. We could transfer much content there from the forum (crediting the forum users) and then keep everything updated there.
I’ve been playing with the idea of setting up (yet another) unofficial community wiki . Would you be interested in helping to get it off the ground? My main concern would be lack of long-term contributions due to the unofficial nature of it.
I would help set up a few, to be completely honest I have no idea how long I will be around. It could be years or weeks… I am a bit unpredictable even to myself.
Still, if you are doing that regardless I could get some content from the forum to the wiki. The thing is I mean an actual wiki, it could be a fandom.com wiki for all I care, as long as it is formatted as a wiki.
If we could properly leverage the wiki powers of discourse would that be acceptable? I’m not sure it’s been implemented properly here which is why it’s kinda garbage so far.
Would this be formatted and navigable like an actual wiki? That is my main concern. Revisions, multiple contributors, updates, rollbacks and easy search and navigation as well as cited sources are really important I believe.
Ideally there would be a standalone wiki, I think. It would probably be easier to navigate and dig through.
Exactly what I think as well. We are all investing energies into maintaining stuff on the forum that would not suffice if DT and chip biohacking grow further. I bet hard access to information has already scared some potential participants away. Easier access to well categorized and maintained information would spur adoption and development further in the long run.
The login systems don’t need to be tied together between discourse and the wiki. I think spinning up a wiki.js instance or a mediawiki would be sufficent. Could start with a few trusted community members being the wiki mods.
For what it is worth, I fully second this.
If it’s not working out then absolutely I’d explore a separate wiki spin up
It is not bad, but a wiki is just more accessible. This resembles readthedocs for developers which not many have used while a wiki is just a wiki and everyone knows how that works.
Of course, this is all just my opinion, I just appeared here out of nowhere a few days ago so I do not have deep insights into this community and its needs. My opinions may be flawed due to my mostly still outsider perspective.
Edit: @amal I believe that with the introduction of the Apex line you are actually tempting less dedicated/crazy/techie people into the space, and then the lack of easily navigable documentation scares them away. It won’t be just grinders anymore I think.
