    I'm trying to keep it on thread, really. It's just that I always see the tapestry and not the individual thread.

    Well said, Don!

    Agree.

    I think Technical Help forum needs restricted to specific repairs / refurbishing to / by JBL spec.

    I think this idea has real merit, Miss Orchid, dood.

    Separate subforums!

    I like to have one for original JBL gear and a separate one for modded gear!

    And I'm sure the Giskard has indeed left the building!

    I'll take that as a nominal yes.

    This Thread is VERY important, and should stay on topic. All benefit from the additional parsing of work - it addresses a topic we've discussed time and again.

    Off I go...

    Poll results

    The poll results kind of look like any other election in the US as of late. The voting few will get to dictate to the non-voting many...as far as membership numbers go. Of course, it looks like most of the active participants have voted.

    Actually, we've not had 80% FOR since I can recall...

    Everybody gets a chance to vote. Few got a chance to strategize the original structure, here, and this idea has real merit. But, we've got to compell the Wizard.

    Those that don't take this opportunity, or converse in the perspectives, live with the outcome, of course.

    OK try this

    How do we divide a DIY forum from Technical Help?? Why don’t we simply say that any questions on stock systems would be covered as Technical Help. If you were building the 4430 as an example you could ask for the crossover schematic in Technical Help. Answers would be limited to a link to a schematic or other reference information that answers the poster question directly. To show the forum your progress or ask if others have built a clone you could start a thread in DIY. Any documentation such as photo’s and how the actual “clones” were built would be in DIY. Under this format any technical questions about the original design would reside in Technical Help. Any issues and documentation of a DIY project would reside in the DIY Forum. We could move Bo’s excellent re-foaming thread there as well as Zilches Q+D 4430 thread as examples. If we limited the Tech Help Forum to just Tech Help it would be easier to search and in DIY we can discuss any and all possibilities for changes to the basic design till the cows come home. This way we will limit Tech Help to what is basically factual or true for the original design and have a place to discuss modifications and changes in DIY. We could even have subheadings in DIY for the 4430 or 4343 as examples where we could discuss upgrades such as Ian’s 4343 Upgrade thread if there is enough posts and content to warrant it. That way all the DIY information is cataloged by design in one place so it would be easier to find.



    What do you think?? Does this definition help narrow things down a bit???

    I would agree that Technical Help should be split into separate sub forums. For instance, (I)Technical Help- OEM specs for maintenance, repair, restoration only. (II) Technical Help- DIY Modification, Repro Projects, Repair, etc. This way factory specs stay factory... period.

    Isn't this already pretty much what the current "Off Topic" is for?
