I was trying to show my friend different weaves of paracord designs so that she could choose one, and we ended up having to bounce around youtube , looking at thumbnails and scrubbing through videos , wading through blogs, and snapping shots of the paracord fusion book with my phone, just to see most of the finished weaves.
I thought it would be great to have ( at minimum ) a webpage with a list of weaves, with a finished photo and the name of the weave.
(and ideally , links to a tutorial, information on how many pieces of cord needed, how long the strands are, the main uses for the weave ( ie decorative vs functional) , who designed it, etc.)
In short, a paracord weave quick-reference wiki .
It would also save a lot of basic repeated questions that come up here.
Could also have a permanent link section to eg animatedknots.com and other useful sites.
I already suggested this to the forum mods and they liked the idea, but well, they are busy people and a wiki is made by the masses, it doesn't require mod supervision.
I don't have mental focus (I'm a bit nuts) or enough paracord weave knowledge to do it, although I'm more than willing to help anyway possible with design or contribution.
Just wondering if there was already something like this ? Or if people here thought it was a good idea? And if so, would we all be willing to jump in and make it, and either link it or donate it to this awesome forum ?
I know there is already the forum, (especially they 'paracord colors' thread' above), but searching and finding stuff on here isn't exactly an easy reference encyclopaedia , stuff is scattered through time and threads, and the initial thumbnails are tiny, you have to enter a thread to see bigger ones etc,
There are a number of pre-set wiki building sites around, you just need to customise and manage a page. Anyone with the skills and motivation to get it going?
I know, it's dick of me to suggest an idea and ask others to do the work, but it was more an idea I'm throwing out to everyone so they can know it's there and decide what they want.
