Hey guys, I was looking around in the forums and from my personal experience of posting so many different threads and making tons of posts to gain information do you think it would be possible to make a kind of "Super Airsofting guide" that would be broken down into many sections all edditied by the public and double checked by everyone. Kind of like a wiki page but better. This would have a section and subsection area and could be expanded massively. There are already some great guides on here that with permission we could pull into the guide to make it really effective.

There are loads of areas we could look at like:

*roles*
- Point man
- Support gunner
- Sniper
- Recon
- ETC
- ETC

Then it could be broken down inside the guides of what type of weapons you should be using and tactics a bit like this:

-sniper
-Main weapon - what to buy - what to look for in a sniper primary - attachments and upgrades - user reviews
-Secondary weapon - what to buy - what to look for in a snipers secondary - attachments and upgrades - user reviews
-Gear - what to buy ETC
-Tactics
-your role in the team - position - covering - communications ETC

Then we could break away from the roles to get onto a more detailed level of guns and gear including user reviews and upgrades then we could use a difficulty meter ranging from novice - intermediate - advance - Veteran

E.G.

Changing the spring on a sniper - difficulty Advance

attaching a scope on a rail - difficulty novice


I have lots more to add this and right now Im just getting it all on paper what do you guys reckon?

I know I have sent basically the same message to rocky Dave to get him to look over it if he likes it there is more chance we can go to the admins with it, I just think it would stop a lot of threads with questions that could be answered just once and also make AF-UK have a great organised database of air soft information which would hopefully pull in some new members.

Airbana have the only other thing similar to this, and that only really lists the rifles you can get.
I love the idea and would obviously do 'scopes'.

I have no idea how hard a wiki is to set up, wait for Dev to comment.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

Yeah marksman if you read my post I said there are already some great ones on the site and yours was what came to mind if we could pull yours into the mix when doing it would save time and give us a great template. Would you mind if we were to use yours if it goes through?

Yeah, I think after doing mine though, it would be necessary before hand to decide on all of the sections that will be In it- then allocate each part to people who are interested in helping.

It will reduce the time needed to do it and allow more people to help

Yeah the organisation behind this is going to be huge but if we assign people to sections it will make things a lot easier and what we will need are some people that are experainced in the sections to check the information and make sure its all correct.

So if we say have it like this

Satrting Airsoft
-How to get into airsoft
-How to find a site
-Choosing your first gun..... we should say that for your first gun, it should't be specialised, assault rifle so the player can see what they want to get from their on- then we can talk about specialised roles with specialised weapons later
-Kit needed to play

Here wecan have a section for things like
-Face protection
-Radio's
and other items

Forming a team and allocating team roles- this is where we can talk about specialised roles, including the guns and kit etc
-Captain/leader/whatever
-Riflman
. guns+accesories
.Equipment and kit etc
-Grenadier
-DM
-Sniper
-Gunner
-Scout/Recon
-Spotter
-Pointman

Like this:
-sniper
-Main weapon - what to buy - what to look for in a sniper primary - attachments and upgrades - user reviews
-Secondary weapon - what to buy - what to look for in a snipers secondary - attachments and upgrades - user reviews


Then tactics and other parts
-Tactics
-your role in the team - position - covering - communications ETC



Then we can have a section on the internals of guns, explaining what each thing is and does.
EG.
Sears
Hop-up bucking
Hop nub etc...

Then any links to things that can be helpful etc

I realise this is probably too much etc. but we can use this as a base to work from

Yeah that was the idea Marksman so good to see were on the same page with that and I figured id have to put that in the beginners guide. I have just spoke to the root admin and he said that we can't make it an official guide unless only trusted people are allowed to edit it as it could be vandalized and im too new to the site.

So i guess if we could get a "trusted" committee to monitor what is added maybe that would be the best option.

And the 4.1 section is daves best one id say lol should just call it section 4.dave

I think thats fair enough, or perhaps just one person edits it, so if someone makes a change to it, people could send the new text to that one person to change

That way, one person collects all of the parts from everyone and puts them all together for the final piece, that way it won't get vandalised
