Export to Wiki

The Audio/Video Component Archive returned to egrabow.com two years ago mainly to boost my search engine ranking and - indirectly - deliver more readers to my novel, Caffeine . As before, I enjoyed working on it. It gave me something to do with my stacks of old Crutchfield catalogs and also the joy of tinkering with an ever-expanding database.

Now with my DX hobby expanding and momentum picking up on my second novel, The Day The Rain Came Back , the AVCA is going to be sidetracked again. Finishing it was a big goal to set, and I hate merely having it sit abandoned (this was a factor behind its 2009 shutdown). I've been thinking about the AVCA's future and have come to some conclusions:

The best solution, if I want to keep site traffic high, is to allow the public to add model numbers and information. But that adds so many variables and security holes that would need constant attention. (It doesn't help that I'm a perfectionist who would be tempted to reformat every single thing submitted.) But if I'm willing to let the AVCA go a solution does present itself: A wiki someone has already started. By "exporting" (my word) the AVCA to this wiki the information stays online and where the public can contribute, without me having to sweat the logistics. This is certainly a better way to go than 2009's plug-pulling. Update

I've already started an account on hifi-wiki.com and plan to move the AVCA entries over the next several months, linking to the new pages as I go. The phased-out AVCA will disappear when I launch version M33 of this website in July 2015.
