Developing CrazyEngineers Newbie Guide !

Its been on my mind since ages. How about developing a comprehensive newbie guide? I'd like to know if anyone wants to volunteer for this? If we get more response for this, we might setup a team that works on developing a newbie guide. πŸ˜€

Interested CEans please reply to this thread !

Count Me In

Count me in 😁
Nice idea indeed. I was totally lost when I joined. I think it is not a one person job. I'll need someone to work with me.

What sections do you think we will have in the newbie guide? Tell me more.

Hey anyone wants to work with me ?

Jerry.

Thanks jerry & crazyboy ! πŸ˜€ It's not a very difficult task. How about having different sections for different functions on CrazyEngineers forum?

For example,
1. General Rules on CE forums.
2. About posting & replying to threads, starting new threads.
3. About the Calendar feature
4. Forum specific FAQ etc.

Let me know if you have more (better) ideas πŸ˜€
