Ok, I just roughly added information about 60% keyboards as I was trying to push forth before but had realised editing the category page instead kills two birds with one stone hence my initial idea was rather moot. What do you guys think of this newer version of my idea? http://deskthority.net/wiki/...

*takes a step back and a breather*. Alright, after getting an anonymous tipoff on history and the responses I will now scrap my idea and just contribute on deskthority wiki instead.

tuxsavvy: From my perspective, I don't imagine the gh/DT split being reconcilable; I simply read and post to both forums. I restrict myself solely to the Keyboards section of GH (as their forum hierarchy is so sprawling), although that may mean that I am missing out on things that no-one else is ev...

Ouch, normally one would hear others say "shots fired!" on geekhack forums. Anyway, I think geekhack may start looking at ways into better integration before it would seek collaboration I guess. The idea of copy and pasting on two wikis just sounds weird and redundant even though I like both GH and ...

tl;dr - I won't be going ahead with my proposal of design sub-section creation, instead I am basically agreeing on making use of categories but to discuss furthermore about it on the actual wiki page for the category itself. :lol: I didn't spot that a Poker II is exactly the same width as a sheet o...

I think the idea of "counter-intelligence" on mere keyboard enthusiasts level is rather insane, especially if one were to defect their own preferences of one place for certain things over the other. Knowledge is meant to be free not a source of wealth however as such I guess there are people whom ma...

tuxsavvy: I don't mean that literally. MediaWiki, like most wikis, is oriented around fully free-text pages with fairly loose tag-style categorisation. The Deskthority wiki is different in that a significant portion of pages are parts or products with specific parameters where it's actually extreme...

True though I am a little confused on second paragraph. I guess ultimately if such a parts catalogue-orientated wiki it might be far more of an upkeep as opposed to just having a (simpler) wiki showing photos of items that some of the manufacturers once had (either hosted on their server, etc or oth...

I guess the introductory bits could be worked around by placing useful stuff into the Description section instead. I will look into fixing up the pages I am more or less active on. True, however I somewhat think that it is nice to suggest of a link to give people some ideas. It may sound like unnee...

Daniel, apologies (sounds like I needed coffee when I started writing responses). I was referring to the photos to be used in wiki and the licenses in where they stand. I guess that is more or less is where the source of my concern was. It probably would be harder to source cleaner photos initially ...

1. Thanks guys for your inputs as well as OO2 for providing feedback on IRC when my connection was getting "maintained" by the ISP (I couldn't browse deskthority at all at the time). For the credits, I have now sent out apologies with request for permission to use the images for the deskthority wiki...

Thing about signatures here is they don't show up on a post directly but under the username beside the post. The counter also would have to be a phpBB mod and as far as I know none exist. Yeah I realised that they show up on deskthority forums within usernames. I think geekhack forums uses simplema...

I have been mercilessly editing a few wiki pages without giving much citation/credits where there are due. So that brings some questions: 1) Photos were "ripped" from various sources for http://deskthority.net/wiki/APC_Clicker_keyboard and http://deskthority.net/wiki/Tai-Hao_APC_semi-mechanical . Mo...

Somewhat new to the deskthority forums (as I have been more active on geekhack forums but been trying to atone on deskthority wiki). Anyway, I noticed that on geekhack forums there is a way to see how much characters are left when trying to compose a custom signature. Contrary on the deskthority for...
