Have a look at the brand new site, MetroWiki.

I am starting this project because its hard to find all the useful posts on here. Search is good, but what if you don't know what to search for yet? New folks often ask the same questions, because they don't know where we keep all the answers.

We need to streamline this process. There are many threads that we all value for their information, we can gather them up and condense them into a general article, with links back to the original threads.

The working goal of MetroWiki is to enable you to know a Geo Metro inside and out, before ever seeing one firsthand. There needs to be complete coverage of known issues, and careful editing of the main articles to ensure that new people come away with the correct impressions. Finished articles will be posted in the guides section. The furthest along is the G10 article.

Some of you may have already heard about this, because I am looking for volunteers to help out creating and maintaining it. This is a big project, but many hands make light work. Anyone can edit any page, its as simple as editing a post on GMF.

If you would like to help and don't know what you can do, drop me a line and I'll help you get rolling. Or if you have something you know you can add, dive right in there! All edits are reversible, so don't worry about 'messing it up' - it can only get better and better. Each page has a talk section, where we can discuss things. Additionally we can use the GMF live chat to hold realtime conversations.

I know we are all busy, but if there is something you want do to help, it’s appreciated. Thanks for your time and efforts to make GMF a better place.
