This is a new section for technical write-ups/HOWTOs, reference threads, and FAQs. The huge block of sticky threads in the technical forums was pushing new discussions far down the list, so we've created this new home for those types of threads.

This is not the place for general technical discussion or questions; please use the other, more appropriate forums for that.

If you did a write-up on something and posted it in the other forum, please "report" the thread to the moderators so that we can move it to this new home.

Let’s get this section rolling, there are a ton of threads on the old site that would benefit from being re-created over here and enjoy the double benefit of being edited down to just the useful bits.

My thought is that we start one thread with just the questions, an “FAQ” if you will. Then those who have the photo documentation and experience to create the explanatory threads can do so.

To be clear, this shouldn’t be a cut and paste job. New content will prevent any appearance of “poaching” and will theoretically be an improved “second-draft” if you will.
