As a member of Sciencemadness.org and the former Roguesci.org I can say that strict moderation can result in useful topics.
However the so called "k3wls" will always weak havoc on such a forum. So PCGuy - it is completely in your jurisdiction as to whether or not you allow the advanced discussion either in the chemical procedures and/or applied science of such. I wouldn't expect you to move into either given this sites current and past scope.
Spudfiles is not a site which theorizes around accelerating an object using a solid propellant, and that is a good barrier to set. There are plenty of sites out there, albeit a bit more professional in discussion, that discuss using solid propellants. One thing that I respect is that accelerating a projectile using anything other than a solid propellant take a hell of a lot of effort. That is seen throughout countless posts and projects here.
However there are very few sites if any which are set to discuss the acceleration of projectiles using solid propellants from an amateur stance. There are sites which consist of 50-75% "k3wls" discussing the accelerating of projectiles using "unorthodox" methods, but the resource of sites with devoted members discussing such is relatively limited, if any anymore. This is probably for good reason - this stuff is not safe under any but the strictest safety procedures, and as someone who actually has taken the time to build an explosion proof fume hood in their basement, I get a bit concerned when reading a majority of the posts I read in subliminal or double speak language I hear on here.
That aside - Spudfiles has a good future and that's obvious
. If there will be a side of the site that discusses advanced methods of acceleration using solid propellants I would strongly recommend a few things:
-In order to access said material, one would have to first request a password from a current member or moderator of said sub-forum.
-Anyone who is not a current member of said forum cannot access the material through a simple Google search or spudfiles.com search.
-Discussion of said acceleration is to remain strictly theoretical or methodical - limited to no applied procedures shall be discussed.
This is what differentiates sciencemadness.org from roguesci.org - one is still around while the other is questionably erased with a key member missing and in jail - and one discusses the chemistry of the field theoretically and methodically while the other permitted applicable discussion.
All that aside - the discussion of such can be accomplished rapidly in a functioning chat room. I would suggest you get that up and running ASAP and all that was said above can be neglected.
