Yes, the problem with Forums is that the info can be mixed together, this is the reason why it is needed the contribution of people that can sum up things and put them together in "tutorials" or "guides".
On the other hand, don't underestimate the (indirect) contribution people asking questions actually make.
I can point you to tens of "methods" that were developed and found only because someone won his own shyness and actually posted a problem.
This whole techical field is basically made by:
- some knowledgeable PRO's, that carefully avoid to post anything that may deprive them from their earnings
- a large numbers of "leechers" that just read whatever is posted and if the solution is not a "one-size-fits-all" "one-or-two-clicks-away" one, simply go somewhere else
- a few "ignorant" (but willing to learn ) people like you or many other members here
- a very few people, that even without being experts on the single topic, try to understand it and then use their capabilities to explain it in an easier and replicable manner
- a very few knowledgeable () AMATEURS, that try to explain and report their experiences and more generally solve problems
People belonging to Group #1 won't help.
People belonging to Group #2 won't help.
People in Group #3 may become easily part of Group #4 and after some time even be "promoted" to group #5.
It is a great personal success for me when I manage to induce someone to "escalate" from #3 to #4 and then to #5.
The essence of the net, expecially of technical boards and particularly of boot-land, is the collaborative effort towards a given goal, the whole Winbuilder thingie has been made possible by the contributions of the members, after the initial "spark" by Nuno.
A "minor" but still innovative and useful project, the "Install XP from USB" method:http://www.msfn.org/...p?showforum=157
was actually born from a "proposed deal":http://www.msfn.org/...opic=81788&st=6
which later was taken by a number of good guys:http://www.msfn.org/...howtopic=111401
As well, some "documentation" project like the grub4dos Guide, has been made possible by the time diddy
dedicated to it, but would have been pretty much less complete without a few hints by me and ilko, and without all the topics posted on the board.
Would you be game for some of this stuff?
Maybe a "MBR/partitioning everything" guide?
We already have member online
, and recently member Nour El2mar
that contributed in the specific field, maybe you could make a common project?
