    What do people think about creating a collaborative liquid manual? . Maybe people can take an option and write about it. Eventually some one could assemble them all together.

    That would be pretty cool to see a breakdown of LGB prior to flashing for the first timers. Also it would be a great place to post FAQs, this could unflood the forum of the same questions asked over and over. Solid idea.

    i guess the steps would be get a server (or use one that liquid already uses), install a wiki script, and start writing!

    yep just a domain and a server so you can install a wiki script like mediawiki or something on it...if you already have one that would be fine

    Sounds good. I want to get started, but alas I'm a noob about terms. I know little html, but not serious stuff. My dad on the other hand...

    you dont need html...once you install a wiki script on your server, you just fill it out and add articles like you would on wikipedia. i can help you if needed.

    i think they want to create something for people who have questions on rom features, installation and troubleshooting...not for people who have already installed it

    What I intended when I started this thread and where it is now are very different. But, I like where this is headed.

    When I said Wiki I just meant a collaborative effort.

    Actually, I originally intended a manual for people who already have the rom to understand some of the options. Some examples:

    Liquid=> Applications => Permission Management
    What does that do? How is it different from Fix Permissions under Liquid=> System

    Liquid=>Performance=>Purge Assets
    What does that do? How is it different from CacheMate (which I have).

    Liquid=>General Screen On Animation
    What does this do? I don't see a difference when I have it enabled
