Revision as of 06:44, 5 March 2012

This wiki wouldn't exist without the kind efforts of GarageJournal.com, PracticalMachinist.com, VintageMachinery.org, JalopyJournal.com, nor Alloy Artifacts.

If you're familiar with the wiki formatting and have something to add, please feel free to. If you're not comfortable with it, you can private message me (or e-mail me dayid@dayid.org) and I will add it myself.

If you add information, please link to a source when possible. If you're uploading an old chart/data page - add the information to the page! Having an old catalog page is fine, but if the information from it isn't added to the ID Chart, etc - then we may as well not have it at all. If you don't feel like adding it in that manner, then send it to me and I'll do it for you. The thing that can happen here is if someone else uploads a catalog/info page, and I don't notice it, then there could be information sitting here on the wiki (in that image) that never gets copied into the pages/text where it can be easily read/searched.

Keep filenames reasonable and categorize your files/pages also. Again, if any of this doesn't make sense then please just send the data to me and I'll put it up.
