Editing privileges do have a time limit. If you go back and see something that needs to be edited at a later date, you can contact a moderator to temporarily allow you to edit a post. Please include a link to the thread, as well as which post you want to edit.
Instead of actually writing the article here, why don't you write it in Word or some other program, and then just copy and paste here ?? That gives you all sorts of chances to change things around to your liking. I do that all of the time for my longer posts.
One other note: The articles need to be your own doing. No copying and pasting from other websites or publications.
Looking foward to seeing what you post.
here's an example of my work. this is the cv boot replacement procedure for a bmw x5 (doesn't matter which model, but specifically the e53 chassis). CV Boot Replacement DIY - BMW X5 (E53) - Xoutpost.com
as you can see, quicker than a word document, more interactive as you can enlarge pictures, and no fast-forward/rewind/pausing like you have to do with a video to get things like torque specs...
however, it's a bit long and detailed so some of the membership here may have trouble getting through it with their attention span issues
for those that want to save money/learn more technically about their equipment, this is a very good way to document all of this.
this is a brand new diesel pusher. there are many break-in procedures per the owner's manuals that i was planning on doing myself and documenting... these will be long and detailed. the multiple replies to myself will not work. editing expirations will need need to be constantly reopened for me...
