Talk:The incomplete RepRap Prusa Mendel beginner's guide
The site ietherpad is down. It may have been down for some time,If someone has the copyright and content of [the_link_I_can't_use_because_the_recaptcha_is_broken] perhaps they could repost it to Titanpad. – Weasel 00:08, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Very nice document, but:
- Needs some serious updating. Unfortunately, its length and somewhat messy format make it unwieldy to edit and update.
- Some links are in sections that are difficult to find or even know that they exist (for example, the "Rostock corner" section).
This really cant be called a beginners guide. It's really upsetting to see things like this. I took a break from 3d printing for a year and have recently come back with the goal of making things easier for people to get into building a reprap and pointing people here and calling it a beginners guide is like dropping an encyclopedia in someones lap.
If I put together a new page under my user can we please discuss putting together a real beginners guide? I mean this ones title doesn't even make any sense anymore. It'd bad enough that we're still here using mediawiki in 2018 and pointing people to random corners of the internet to find out fundamental information, the least we can do is collectively make a start at making things better for new users. --rickm (talk) 11:35, 19 July 2018 (EDT)
