Can I invite a handful of New 500 owners to join and contribute in the wiki?

So the title is pretty self-explanatory, but there is a severe lack of information all gathered in one place for the new Fiat 500. While these cars are new enough that it's not a huge problem, it does create some annoyances during DIY work, and part replacement and sourcing. For example, most manufacturer part numbers are not known, so many people end up buying genuine parts through Mopar at absolutely absurd prices.


Seeing the very populated wiki for these cars has made me realize how useful it would be for the 500 community. The forum some of my friends run, Broken Fiat Club, had a wiki at one point, but not enough people contributed and it ultimately was removed as it was empty. I see that there is a new 500 section in the current xWeb wiki, which I plan to contribute to.

TL;DR

I have a few people willing to contribute and add their information to hopefully start to build up some sort of repository for the New 500. I don't think it'll be large enough to warrant it being its own, I think just a section in ours is fine, but before I invite a lot of people that don't even own x19s to make a Wiki account, I just wanted to feel out/ask if this is allowed or frowned upon. I imagine some of them will trickle onto the forums too, but the majority of it should just be on the wiki.

Cheers, Jon

@Jonohhh - I have no issue with adding 500 info. We already have some other non-X content in the wiki :) In the past, i've only added Wiki accts for those who have already registered on XWeb but that doesn't need to be a hard rule if these are folks that you are familiar with. We may need to be thoughtful about Wiki page naming to avoid confusion with X content, but than can be fixed up if needed.

Thanks!

Hey Mark,


Fantastic, I appreciate the response! I've been slowly pecking away, I've passed the info along to those who were wanting to contribute. It may take a while for them to begin, but I told them to specify that I sent them to make the process of accepting someone without an xWeb account a bit more straightforward for ya!


Cheers, Jon
