    What would be good in the basic principles forum would be the basics. Like basics in DC, AC, Analog, maybe some Digital. People post questions concering some of the easiest problems like color codes of resistors and caps, how to add caps and resistors, etc.... Just thought it would help. :D

    New Theory Posts

    As a quick-fix to your problem you could pm the post to me and I could stick it in 'Theory' for you (with your name in the text for credits).

    herbymcduff does actually bring a very interesting fact. We do not have a beginners forum. For someone that doesnt know hardly anything about electronics such as how to read a resister, how to work our watts, etc.

    Do you think we should create one?

    Well, this is off the topic but it is better to correct someone if they are wrong. I am sorry to say Eletromaster but you misspelled resistor as resister.

    i think a beginners forum would be a good idea. it may give some people confidence to progress further. no one starts out as an expert (expecially me) :)

    No such thing as an Expert !

    It appears we are starting to consider a new forum for discussions of things at a beginner's level :?

    I wonder if this is really appropriate - surely the only difference between a beginner and a master is the amount of information the master has collected 8)

    The whole purpose of the forums is to share our collective knowledge and experience so that others may benefit ... everyone will be able to contribute something eventually :roll: we will all have different strong subjects (and weak ones !).

    Should we be thinking more in terms of beginner's information in the 'Theory Articles' content section :?:

    OK --- soap box returned to cupboard.

    As I told mechie in PM, it would be nice to post in the theory articles. Maybe not as a newbie or a wannabee, but guru's should atleast know what they are talking about, and should atleast have access to that forum.

    ok, i agree about the basic principles articles.!
    i sometimes read basic books(although i gived them up some time ago) and i find something that i missed, usually insignifiant things, but it is still something.
