What's the status of the Wiki?

I've spent about 15 hours reading through all of the posts. Incredible work, to everyone involved. I enjoy telling people about the homebrew EV controller project that has gotten people from all over the world to come together and offer anything they could to help further the project along. Amazing.

Has anyone started work on the wiki yet?

I own a small web design company and I'd be happy to host and build the wiki. I'm not sure I'm the best person to actually add the content in (much of the EE stuff goes beyond me, but I'm studying), but I would be happy to get everything setup so people could start putting together content. If anyone has started to get one together, let me know if there's anything I can do to help. If not, let me know and I'll get one put up - it should only take a few days to get something decent put together.

Again, thanks to Paul and everyone involved. This is one of the most amazing efforts I've come across in a long while.

Ya, could you do the wiki on here? I read the how-to files, and I still don't know how-to. hahaha!

This project is making a DC conversion sound better every day. I might see about making a little toy car for my daughter as practice. Maybe then a full size gokart for me. Then I'll have something to transport in my electric ute. :P

Sure, I can take a look at the wiki here and see if I can get one put together.

It looks like someone has already gotten it setup.

ReVolt - EcoModder

I'll search through the thread tonight and see if I can't get all the attachments moved over to the wiki. As I said before, I'm not sure I'm the best person to organize the data as I don't have a terribly firm grasp on the nitty gritty of it but I'll get to work on what I can.

I've got a basic shell setup. Anyone that can login to the forums can edit the wiki also.

When in the heck did that happen?! Hey ZeroGasoline, I could upload stuff to you, and you could help develop the page. That might be easier, since some of the newer things aren't even posted yet.

By the way, I fixed a couple things on the BOM on the wiki. 15pF caps were changed to 20pF caps, and a part number with cost was added for the 16 MHz crystal.

Actually you can tell I edited it, because now the stupid crystal section looks wrong. ha!

We should add the power section to the bill of materials. Right now it's just the control section.

Paul,

Feel free to send me any data you would like to get posted to the wiki. I can start throwing info up there and we'll work on organizing it.

I'll add a power section to the BOM, and I'll try to clean up the formatting on the control section.
