Some of you may remember a while back I asked if people wanted me to write any new guides for various techy things.
Well, I've been doing that (a little bit, at least) but rather than posting them on LJ/DW or whatever I've been putting them on a wiki... a Vidding Tech Wiki!
I figure if I continued to do this for long enough, it might become actually useful.http://vidtech.info/
This is *really* *really* early stages
. It has a few random guides, some WIP stuff and some placeholders for things I intend to write but I figured that if I showed people it might motivate me to do more with this. Right now there are a few guides and the start of a glossary and that's it.
This is, of course, a wiki and I do want everyone to contribute if they feel they have something to contribute. Guides can be personal 'this is how I do x' or general 'this is what X means and ways to do X'. You can see there's a mix of this already.
Editing is simple, you login with an OpenID (livejournal, dreamwidth etc etc) just like on Fanlore and you can make pages. Later I will likely add some more admins and such but really that's thinking far far ahead. For now, all I'm looking for is people to look over it, give me some comments, suggest content, point out glaring errors and generally make it a bit more useful and usable. I was in talks about putting content like this on Fanlore but for now it's going to be separate to see if it becomes of any use. Text content is currently under a Creative Commons license
. If people have thoughts on that, just leave a comment here.
If you have a guide that you'd like to put on the wiki but you'd like me to do it, just ask. The more content the better. I'm hoping that we can fill out this wiki with a lot of commonly asked questions and have good guides on ripping, clipping, project settings in different programs, exporting, playback etc etc etc.
Let me know what you think. Feel free to link to this in any communities that might find it relevant.
