Sounds like a good thing that you are doing!
Could I suggest that you create "mini-articles" for each of your steps, then you can both reference them and include them in your own personal page, and also iinclude them on the appropriate page in the main Wiki.
The problem with putting all information on "what I did" pages is that someone might have to read all of the user pages to get an answer- say you talk about how to get the VFD running on your case, and someone else talks about how a particular motherboard has a procedure to get the NIC working.
It'd be good to be able to look at the "motherboard" pages and the "cases" pages to get the info I (as a new user) needed instead of trawling/searching through individual pages.
I actually did this restructuring for the Newbie packs a while ago, then all of the editing was lost in a wiki crash. My reasoning was that it was silly to have the same information repeated in both the "core" and "hybrid" wiki pages, it made a lot more sense to just have them both reference a single paragraph about (say) using the Pioneer DVR-216 as a recommended component. Makes future editing easier too (one place to change info not 2).
This is done already by properly categorizing the content in your personal wiki page. I.e. if you have an Standard Def setup, it should be categorized as such. This makes the user setups section easier to navigate as you can narrow down what specifically your looking for.
btw thanks for adding your setups. Ive been trying for a while to get folks to add theirs
sounds like there might 2 or 3 noobs that are willing to do some documentation of their experiences. how bout a guide and step by step to get us going in the right direction to how we can build upon what is already here. create mini articles, categorize, reference. How and where my friend?
