---Warning long post---
Hello All,

Instead of asking you all indvidually (Mainly cause I am not the patient type if you hadn't already noticed).

I would like to use anything and everything you guys have been posting here on the wiki. I would like to sort, organise and generally put stuff into the wiki. For that to happen I can go about it two ways, I can ask you all indvidually, or I can do what I am about to do-

If you have a problem with me moving, using or doing anything with any of your writing on the forum or on slinging.org, or that you don't want me to use, please post here or send me an email to nightweave at gmail dot com.

And before you ask about crediting people with thier effort time and thought power; I'll make a page on the wiki for credit's I'll add the peoples online names into the credits page as I use their information (either derived or straight copy from thier work). I'll also try and make sure I let people know when and if I use their stuff. If you are worried about copyright I have just finished my editing chapter on the copyright and I am happy to explain any of the legal stuff you need to know.

You'll notice currently more things are being added to in the Miscellaneous list and these area's are going to be filled out as quickly as I can. (The main reason for this is I am not waiting around for progress to continue on the casting stlyes page. As I said not a very patient man at the best of times. Also it stalls my momentum and that can be, for me, annoying and it takes me time to get back in the saddle if I stop.)

Feel free to fix, add, change, anything you see me put on the wiki. Matter of fact if I am wrong post here or on the discussion pages, I read it eventually and we'll sort it out from there.

Remember this is your Wiki and your project not just one persons. Everyone here has something they can do weather it be pictures, photo's, movies, experiance, knot techniques, an eye for my spelling mistakes (Thanks Dale), constructive critisims.

Current requests:

New page: Methods of Making slings page.

Note to everyone would like to order this in layers.

Starting with historical construction of a sling then moving onto modern ones. This means that the first page will be quick to medium size explanation on the creation of each type of sling then links to more detailed sling construction. (With pictures)

New page: Ammunition I have started on this one already but require the more techincally minded (read clay and lead users) help with page creation and detail. From here there will be an instruction on making clay and lead glands as well as right choice of rocks. Any one and every one has thier chance with the rocks one and maybe we could start a discussion on it and go from there.

Pictures and art:

Lead and Clay with both metric and imperial measure beside.

Wide and Narrow grip drawings.

Slinging style movement drawings either in flim seperated picture or drawn.

Movies of all the casting styles. (I think we have these already on slinging.org I think that may just be a colate and order)

At this point I'd like to ask Zwiebeltuete if he doesn't mind using some of his own webpage on slinging stuff for the Ammunition pages. (Well worth the read peoples.)

For now that's all I can think of and I have chores to do.

nightweave

At this point I'll stop, with one thing left to say.

I am asking in a round about way for your help. So take pitty on my annoy butt and help me out.

Nightweave,
I am sorting through old posts and find many on sling making and ammo (making).

Would it be helpfull if I send you links for those I think worth reading/puting in the wiki?

I have been puting the best in the Project Goliath part of the forum so far, but not everthing does fit in.

I am willing to describe some methods of sling making, but I am no historian and would not know which way was used when.

Willeke,

Links are great, Dale did the same of the casting page and has made a big impact on how I sorted and organised the page.

Even if they don't fit let me know with a blurb if possible as to why you don't think they fit and we'll get creative and see what we can do.
