While lookin' on another forum that I go to (the jockey journal) I saw something I thought might be a good idea here !

They allow th' moderators to take any topics that illustrate any form of usable or interesting tech and add it to th' "tech archive" ! Things like a good way to extract and replace th' cushion rubbers in th' triumph clutch and how to make th' special tools for various jobs on th' bike you are interested in !

Being in th' archive means you dont have to search th' entire forum to find what you need and ONLY th' moderators can add to or erase from this archive !

I found it usefull , you all can make up yer own minds !

Have you asked Will S GH?

I have stuff about testing Lucas alternators (voltages, resistances etc) I can add.

I think it would be a great addition. I too, hail from various brand motorcycle forums, vintage chainsaws, and small tractors. Each of those forums have libraries and tech articles. Usually charging systems, clutches, carb rebuild and sync, etc. Mostly "How to" articles that members have carefully documented and assembled.

This came up a while ago gh, but nobody seemed to take the hint or think it's as good an idea as we do. There is even a spare forum that isn't hardly used that would suit.....?

Maybe this time.

post a link to another forum that i may look at.
I have a archive forum Administrator archive board.
One must be login to see it and the Admin (me)can post/edit/reply but no one else as the setting is right now.

If I create a Tech archive board would it work with one or do we need multiple tech archives for specific topics?
Should these be available for replies? lots of things to consider...

let me know

This is a car forum , but th' system is convenient !

It would be to prefer using the forum for this however it might or not might be easier to use several boards to cover various tech topics. Having all tech articles in one board would make it difficult to find.
There must be many thrteads that we could move from boards like triumph board to a tech archive board as in the future we might need to delete some threads to avoid it to grow to big.
Having important tech advice topics moved to an archive makes it a lot easier to clean a board...
Need to think more on this so please give me feedback
I would like to be able to host tech images om my own server so it don't just dissapear one day from another.

Hello Morgan ... I would be happy to support a 'Technical Archive' with the information and 'tricky' bits of info I and many others have written up and kept for our own use.

Dave and others,

I'm not sure how to set up the tech archive board.

It would be great if I could arrange so that it would be possible to upload to the archive se we do not depend on links.
or we should build it with links to other places but then we don't control if someone deletes it.
Also could it be possible to keep it all in one archive/board or should it be multiple.. if multiple how should we sort it

by M'cycle brand or by the topics, elictrica,, carb, wheels etc or as the first all in one giant archive. If one then it's one place to search. Anyway it would be great to have a place to store tech stuff because eventually we need to start pruning from the database. it cannot grow much more as it is today...
Look forward Dave to your contributions later on.

Keep it simple Morgan.

Just start off with one technical board, all makes. If in the future you get complaints from people fed-up reading about Triumphs then you can just duplicate the board into new ones for each make that requires one. However lots of problems are common to all bikes.

The only downside with one board is that users have to learn how to search. From the number of repeated questions I see it seems that this is difficult for some.

Also I would prefer to upload rather than use links as I find the thread easier to read done that way.

One eternal problem, for me, is (not) having descriptive topic titles to start with.

Searchin' thru an archive devoted to tech only is a hell of a lot simpler than searchin' th' entire forum to get th' info you need !
