Spiff! We were just talking in Saturday's vid chat about how killer our wiki is and that getting to it could be easier. Now it's front and center on page one! I was thinking maybe a link along the top after FORUM like CRAZY SPIFF GUITAR WIKI but we could just call it WIKI for short smile.gif

I agree Todd!!


In fact, I have often thought that there should be a potential "re-organization" of the whole GMC forums structure. I feel like there are SO MANY great little "hidden" corners of the forums, including wiki, that need to get more of a "spotlight". It took me months to find some really cool sections of this site, as I was mostly spending time in the "PRACTICE ROOM" only.


It seems like this current structure is a re-organization of the classic format, but perhaps sometime in the near future it would be good to go at it again and combine the best of both worlds? Not trying to put more work on you....the team here at GMC already does so much work!!

I just teach guitar smile.gif I don't actually maintain or change the site, that's up to Kris and his folks running our killer site. But yeah, a tweak here and there to make the good bits easier to find could only be a good thing!

Thats sort of what we thought might benefit from a change. The BIG problem with putting it on that box on the left is "Advert Blindnes", the eyes just gloss over anything looking like a banner so it's really, really easy to miss where the point I had no idea it was there. It seems like putting it across the top would be a great idea if possible.
