I dont think you need to take if offline, I think do think its a great idea
my only comment/concern was duplication of information, which in my experience tends to mean resources get outdated, and then can confuse people even more…
generally my thoughts are:
official C&G manual
I think the official manual here has a definite scope and goal , its somewhere for a new user to start… get themselves up and running, and I think it should cover everything that is in the Organelle Mother UI.
Im sure that C&G are planning to update it, but these things take time…
(and im partly to blame here, I dont have access to it, so when Im adding things to the OS , I cannot update it)
of course, its not practical for it to cover everything… and this is where i think a community wiki can shine
(e.g. pd programming specifics, troubleshooting things like wifi)
that said, Im sure @oweno and @chrisk would appreciate feedback on how the manual can be improved (rather than it some how being ‘superseded’
also one possibility is for the C&G manual to be ‘open sourced’, or put into wiki setup, such that the community can help improve/maintain it… in much the same way the OS is.
of course this is something @chrisk and @oweno have to decide
I repeat, I think its a great idea to have a community wiki, that can continue where the manual leaves off,
and perhaps collates information from the forum … which can sometimes become difficult to find in a historical sense.
the only thing ive noticed on similar products though is, the information can get ‘dated’ quite quickly, esp. if it goes into things like patch specifics.
… and sometimes ‘old information’ is worst than no information, because in the latter case usually just post the question on the forum , where other users are likely to reply with ‘current’ information.
I guess easy curation is the key, @healthylives is being really generous now by offering to curate it, but it might become a burden to keep it up to date long term… easier if any user can go update it, if they find something out of date?
anyway, just my personal thoughts… and i certainly recognise im probably not its ‘target audience’, though I could contribute.
