A few months ago some might remember this same....discussion. There was a web |
developer and myself (web designer) who reached out to Dave, Brent and the
Exchange members to offer up our services to rebuild this website on our own
dime. I exchanged emails with Dave and he wrote me a lengthy email reply about
his position on the site.
I know Dave can speak for himself, but I'll paraphrase Daves thoughts here since
he was good to respond to my questions. He believes the sites sole purpose to to
be a resource for the restoration of the bikes and what the site is in need of is
technical content. So what we need is for those people with technical knowledge
to fill-in-the-blanks on the other How-To-Restore by-year pages.
1955 Hummer page - Completed
Pages with incomplete information
( He pointed out a good example is that of the Harley K Model website.
I wonder if completing these pages would satisfy Dave to let us rework the site. I
hope so. Since that earlier discussion I asked around to a few of these
knowledgeable folks and the response I received back was "we could complete
most of this information, but there are differences of opinions on small details (like
what color was the stitching on the seats of a 1951, Black? White? etc..etc..). To
me it seems like a minor issue to resolve, but not for some I guess.
As we all know most of these guys are getting older or losing interest making it
harder to gather this information. I want to do my part but knowing all these details
just isn't in my wheelhouse, so I'll stick to building websites.
Hopefully there is a compromise out there somewhere. Maybe someone out there
is willing to give these pages a shot?
