    Does this site have any sort of wiki type function (or similar) where organize and store information. Stuff like PDFs of owners manuals, TSB info, recall info, mopar part installation instruction sheets etc. Could be PDF files or paper scanned into PDF.

    It would also be nice to organize part numbers (oil filters, plugs, mud flaps etc. etc. etc).

    If there is way to do this I'd be willing to volunteer time to build/update.

    yes, a knowledge base would go a long way to preserving bandwidth. a simple search instead of posting the same information every time someone asks a previously answered question.

    What would be also helpful if this could be set up as a read only. That way you would not have to scan through pages of "chatting" to find what you are looking for.

    not necessarily "read only" but have a separate article submission forum. then any submitted article would need to be approved by an admin/moderator before it would be posted to the KB.

    Maybe a sticky thread with info, and only a admin/mod can post there.

    They can be, but it is also a pita to go through 30 pages on chit chat to try and find the answer

    Just need a knowledge base but that costs big bucks and let anyone can write one so if you have a question PM the author. The Admins and Moderators don't have time for that AND it would be second hand info. We have such a thing at work and it's nice as long as you trust the author which I did cuz 90% were mine:D

    Sounds useful...would also recommend including a page with links to the 'official' FCA documentation i.e., recalls, TSB, Manuals, etc.

    That's why you do something like a wiki. Organize it and use it for what it is.... a documentation tool.

    I have no use for a thread (sticky or not) full of info. You spend forever going through xxx pages of posts just like you said. That method stinks. This is why I asked *if* the forum software provides any sort of wiki like function.

    There does seem to be a wiki addon for the XenForo forum software that hellcat.org uses. cereal killer would have to speak to whether or not it is currently installed (guessing not) or if it could be.

    That said, a sticky thread can be useful... IF the first post(s) are constantly updated with new information. Here is an example, one of my own threads (perhaps I should make it a sticky, rename and it could contain the type of information discussed in this thread):

    I'll look at getting a wiki set up here. Excellent idea! I set one up on our Dart site and it's an excellent resource.

    Cool, I just noticed a WIKI link. This is outstanding. If done properly it will be a HUGE resource. I'd like to start a list of part numbers. Would it make sense to have a part number page or try to fit them in somewhere else. I'm thinking oil filters, mudflaps, door sills, spark plugs. Anytime you look up something to buy add the part number. Personally I wouldn't bother putting prices. Prices change and it's easy enough to google a part number to see where you can get it and for what price.

    Hellcat.org rocks... This is such a useful place and a good bunch of people.. Thanks.
