We have a few people asking about creating their own forum based buildlogs. The system is ready to go. You just need to follow the steps below.
1. Authorization You need to be authorized to create a new topic on the "Build Logs" forum. Simply request this by sending me a message or email. You will know if you are authorized when you see the New Topic button in the forum.
2. Create a new topic. The subject of the topic should be the name you want to use for you build log. Try to make it a little descriptive and unique to your build. If you are retrofitting an XYZ laser, don't call it XYZ Laser or XYZ Laser Retrofit. Calling it Bob's XYZ Laser retrofit would be better (assuming there is a Bob involved). The first topic should be a description and overview of your build.
3. Add Entries. Add new posts everytime you want to add to the build log.
4. Comments If someone adds a comment or suggestion you want to respond to, simply add a reply. At the beginning of your reply use the comment BBCode button to tag this as a comment.
The system has a lot of flexibility, so I can make changes on the fly. I am sure there are things we will need to change as we get going. If there is a problem, just send me a note or post something in this forum. I can make the changes and we can always edit previous posts.
