How stuff works Forum?

Unread postAuthor: CS » Sat Aug 06, 2005 10:02 pm

I thougth of this when I went to howstuffworks.com. What if you made a new forum under the general catergorie and inside you would have articles on how stuff works and the science behind stuff Ex:combustion, pneumatic, hybrid, silencer, etc. I think this would cut down on all the noob questions. I would be more then happy to help write some of these articles. I think it would be a big help to the noobs if they new the science behind something rather then how to do it. Example if you give plans to a noob on how to make a combustion gun theyll come back later asking questions like how big should my chamber size be but if you explained how a combustion worked like "when you ignite the fuel in your chamber there is pressure created so that pressure wants to go the easiest way out and that easiest way out is the barrel but before that pressure can leave it needs to push the ammo out of the way which again is out the barrel" (thats how a spud cannon works). So now that noob can hopefully by now know the answers to some of Q's. Sound like a good idea?

Why don't I just point you towards the spud wiki beta.

Yeah, it's not ready to roll yet... is it, PCguy? Are there functions you need to add, or is read to use?

It's not quite ready yet, almost though since i've decided that it woulden't be worth it to keep trying to make it match the rest of my site.
