Your thoughts on BrewWiki
« on: July 17, 2006, 08:45:42 PM »
I've been trying to decide which articles to add next to BrewWiki.  The basic structure is in place now along with many articles, but which topics would you most like to see added to BrewWiki?

Cheers!
Brad

I looked a few days ago and didn't see anything (didn't look too hard) on style guidelines including history.

Whenever our club does a brew, we like to include background info on the style.

Hey-

just thought I would revive this topic as you should really add a way to cite your pages like they do on the wikipedia website here:

"cite this article"

Thanks!
  I agree it would be great to add citations - and I encourage people to do so. 

  BrewWiki is a living document that depends upon people willing to contribute a few minutes of their time to make it better.  If you see something that needs some editing, please jump right in and edit it!

Thanks,
Brad

The BrewWiki is a great idea but a little sparse.

My notions are that aside from a few 'hard core' beer folks, this is an avocation that folks use as they choose. 

The common denominator is that everyone here has BrewSmith software.  My suggestion is to add links to the BS help menus to cite the wiki or other articles.  It would improve the overall help menu content from a programming use guide to an educational tool.

Just a thought.

Thanks for the thoughts!

I agree BrewWiki could use additional contributions.  I welcome you or anyone reading to create an account there and start adding your own articles and thoughts.  I'm considering adding some of the articles from the blog to it as well.
