Hi all smile.gif

Guitarists love gear!
We love our amps, our stomps, our pedalboards and multi-fx units. We even love our cables, strings and picks! And guitars, oh, guitars.... wub.gif smile.gif

Let's write mini-reviews!!


Errr... but what's a mini-review?!
It's a small, fast & useful "post" about some of your favourite (or hated!) pieces of gear!, but we write it in our wiki.
Reminder: Every member of GMC already has wiki priviledges activated. If you are a member you can (and are encouraged!) to edit any of our wiki articles freely!


Yeah, yeah, we already have lots of great reviews in our knowldge base!
Yes, but mini-reviews are much more smaller and take no longer to create than making a post in a forum thread!
No need to write a long text with pictures, explanations etc. You just say what you feel like about your gear, it can be just a couple lines, a couple paragraphs or a whole book. Up to you!


Ok, then I'll post in a thread!
Cool!. But if you "post" it in our wiki all the info regarding a particular piece of gear plus all GMCers opinions about it will be at one same place! Fast, useful and easy!


Hmmm. This sounds good. But how does it really work?
Piece of cake.
I'm going to write a mini review in our wiki right now, because I have a nice VOX AC4TV amp which I enjoy a lot. It will take me only 3 minutes to do it all. Be right back!

You see? I'm already back! Took me just 2 minutes actually laugh.gif .Here it is:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde...4TV_Mini_Review


But I don't really understand how the wiki works
If you can type, you can wiki.

Just go to the knowledge base, type in the search box example: POD X3 Mini Review and click "Go". If the gear doesn't exist it will tell you there's no such entry, you click on "create this entry", and you are rolling.

Once there you write your mini review, click save and it's done!, it will be saved as POD X3 Mini Review, because that's what you searched for at the start and chose to create. Make sure you add the "mini review" words after the gear name, so that everyone knows it's a mini review page and they keep adding more opinions.

Besides if you still have any doubts we have a short really helpful tutorial, or you can contact me anytime and I'll be glad to lend a hand smile.gif


Now comes the fun part

If someone types vox ac4tv they will read my mini review, and know whether I think it's good or bad and why. Just a couple paragraphs.
What's even better is that if you also own an AC4 you can just go ahead, edit the entry and post your opinions right there too! Just like we do on the forums, only creating an amazing knowledge base in the proccess!.


And that's it? As easy as writing a post?
Yes smile.gif



To sum up:

I always feel there's an inmense amount of knowledge in our boards. But it's "spread all over the place", takes so much time to search through threads & threads to find that golden piece of advice, opinion, text, etc.
Imagine if this week we all take 3 minutes to write about our amp on the wiki. Can you imagine the awesome amount information that would be at our disposal with only 3 minutes of our time?

It's like when you think "If every person in my country gave me a cent, I'd be millionaire!!", but this is actually possible, and we all win.
Let's share our 3 minutes, and we'll gain thousands of hours of experience & knowledge! (Besides we all love telling our friends about our latest stomp, axe or amp, don't we?)

Fantastic! I've always been a little turned down by writing in the Wiki, as I do not really feel I have the time (I do have the time, I just don't feel like I have the time laugh.gif!) to write long reviews. With mini-reviews I might take more action and write on what I know!

Exactly!

We all enjoy tellingl others brief reviews about our gear, but we might not have the time to write long texts. Mini-reviews!!

I wrote my opinion on the Vox too, but I'm not sure if I done it properly, and left room for others to write something as well. If there is an explanation how to do this it would be great, cause I always forget how to insert important tags and all smile.gif

Great Ivan! that's exactly what this is for, sharing different impressions of the same gear, the more the merrier!

As for tags, etc. there's really no need for them in these mini reviews, and if something important is missing I will find it and sort it out, so no problem. Members can always check the wiki tutorial or ask if they wish to add links, pics etc.

I really liked your review Ivan smile.gif

What a smart idea! I have already read through Paal imac article - mini reviews could be a GMC hit!

Fran, do you think we should add some kind of link from the Gear Portal? Or even have a 'Mini Reviews' sub-section on the Gear page?
