I think that these tech articles should be complete and finished when they are posted. The bronco forums (78-79 and the 80-86 and the sas) should be the ones wehre people say I started my ....swap or what not.

its come to my attention that alot of chit chat and thread hijacks are happening in the tech/write up threads, please try to keep the threads clean, act like adults and moderate yourselves, the write up section in particular is meant to be a source of information and consideration to the thread starter should be shown for taking the time to pass on the info to others, please just try to keep it to discussion of the subject

thanks

Not trying to willy nilly and just go threw here and delete post or anything. But I have been putting an effort into keeping the Tech Write up section just that, A Write up section It Is to be used as a Reference if your doing the same thing/project.
There are rules for this area that no one/most don't follow, eg.Like If you have a ? You PM the original Poster. not keep posting in the thread. If You need or Feel you have to do that, Go Ask the ? in the noobie tech or the 80-96 tech section. more then likely you will even find the same ? posted many time there already. If anyone"original poster" feels that they just need to keep conversing in the thread ask And Ill move it for ya.

So a lot of threads are going to get cleaned up. Please be supportive of the rules for this area. Thank you All. Remember you all make this section what it is and it has some of the Best write ups of any forum out there.

Hi Larry, here are some thoughts.

I always thought the Q&A after the original write-up frequently added to the understanding of the process. Yes, the original post shouldn't be a question, those belong in the other sections. And all the "Attaboys' don't add anything either. But if you "Clean up" all the Q&A that follows the original write-up, you are removing info that others who read it later should have as part of the instructions. It isn't like they clutter up the original write-up in the 1st post, they just follow it. And often there's good stuff in what follows.

Having the OP answer each question over & over in PMs as suggested doesn't seem nearly as effective as allowing him to answer each question once, & then keeping them stored with the write-up for future members with the same questions. Please leave the follow up info intact.

Thanks, Ken

El Kabong,

I think that is his intent. To leave follow-up posts that are directly related to the Tech Write-up and delete personal statements. You are correct in that clarifications and corrections are invaluable.

This sounds a lot like he doesn't want Q&A to follow a write-up, & if it goes on the write-up thread will be cleaned or moved. Why not leave it there to answer future questions, instead of wasting the OP's time with repeated PMs, or spreading the info all over the site in multiple threads? Questions directly related to the write-up seem like they belong with it.

That there are the rules of this section El Kabong I didn't make them. I'm not going to get rid of everything Just going to try and keep it a lot cleaner. before 3 other mods/admin took care of this section and everything got deleted then. If you go back and look at write ups from the first 2 yrs of this section you will see how much neater they look.

It gets a little confusing in a lot of the write ups when there is 4 pages of ppl talking and throwing their opinions of how they would do it.

Ill get back to you later on this bud If I can I have to get ready for work God Bless

I understand that ^ rule to say that a new thread, i.e. the original post of a thread, should not ask question. Those should be asked elsewhere. That makes sense. I read that rule to say if someone wants to start a thread to ask how to fix their Bronco, this is not the place to start that thread. I don't think its intent is to say that there can't be follow up questions & answers related to the Write-up, but is focused on keeping the "How Do I" threads in other sections.

It seems like these 2 threads, started by plug ugly:
saginaw swap
Twin sticks for a E40D
are examples of the original intent of this section. If that rule was intended to keep followup questions out of this section, why does he allow and answer them in his own threads?

To delete the follow up questions & answers in a Write-up seems like a waste of good info provided by many members over the years. It may appear neater, but to lose that info for neatness defeats the purpose of someone trying to share their knowledge with the rest of us. To suggest that people PM the OP instead to ask those questions is kinda silly. Those questions & answers can help many of us if allowed in the open forum. If someone doesn't want to waste their time reading the followup, they don't have to read past the 1st post. But for the rest of us, frequently the followup can clarify the process shown in the writeup. And many times the alternate methods that are added by others are edited into the original writeup by the OP making it better. Even in that twin stick link above a gusset is added at the suggestion of someone who tossed in how he would do it. Alternate ideas can be an improvement. Sometimes they're not. Let us read them & choose which approach fits our build the best. We are better together as a group than we are by ourselves.

If I understand this rule wrong, & its intent is to keep us from asking followup questions, you folks should change the rule. That info is part of what makes FSB such a great resource. Removing it, or removing the opportunity for future followup Q&A, will only reduce the quality of this site. It might look neater, but it will be less of "a resource/catalog of items for for anyone planning a swap or modification".

Thanks for thinking about this,
Ken

And I totally agree with you. If it is thread specific Q+A I see no reason for the deletion of said material.

And in my opinion (which I'm sure was the intent of Plug's post) if it is tech specific to the thread at hand it should stay.
