FryBrid Index Wiki

OK, Guys,

Clipper is my big idea and my grand experiment.
You know how you're always trying to find an old thread about a particular subject?
Well, Forrest started a thread called "New to grease? Start Here,"
basically trying to catalog some of those "FAQ" threads.

I just took some of Forrest's content and posted it here.

Trouble is, an INDEX of the FryBrid site can be a PITA for ANYONE to maintain.
So NO one has.

But if we ALL maintain it, it becomes a useful tool, right?

Well, that's what a WIKI does.
Any one of you can get on this page and write anything you want.
Any one of you can also get on this page and change or delete anything
that anyone else has written here.

Including anything you have just read, or that you are reading now.
Anything I just wrote. ANYTHING.

Any Bozos come along and post some crap, it's gone almost as soon as it's written.
Very self-regulating.
Very democratic, no?

OK. So I would like to lay a few ground rules.
I would like to ask that you not delete anything I have just written, explaining how this works.

Before you add a link, I would like to ask you to give some thought as to how to categorize it.
You can put the same link under as many topics as you want.

You can ADD as many categories or topics or sub-topics as you want.

Just try to stick with the general format:

CATEGORY - Heading 1 - Red

TOPIC - Heading 2 - Green

SUBTOPIC - Heading 3 - Black

I've "fleshed out" a few categories to maybe get us started.
PLEASE, take the ball and run with it.

Try to add a short explanation (in parentheses) of what they will find on the page,
such as: (Frybrid heated fuel line diagram)

OK? Oh, and one more nice, will ya?
Do not create a category about "thumping on Dana," OK?
He'll just erase it anyway.

Let's try to keep this a simple INDEX of technically USEFUL FryBrid Forum pages, OK?

Hope this works....Clipper
