Hey Space Fractal, I have to run to work. I will catch up with you a little bit later.

See you  :D. Hope you can fix it, because it looked fine in my Firefox, so you may use a older version of Firefox? So I would NOT revert again.

I really love your table, should just have seen in Firefox first! Good work (80% is a GOOD width)!

It was a silly one tag missed: You forgot to add  <br style="clear:both;"/> between tables. Now it works as you would have it. I do not know it a error in IE or FF.

Do you guys want me to correct your spelling mistakes in your reviews? Normally I would prefer to leave review text totally untouched, but I thought I'd ask.
I have changed my nickname to "Cakemeister". Please do not PM the Buddabing account because I do not check it anymore.

Please read the wiki!

Looks good. Thanks. Sorry, I just went in this morning and knew it looked last night and when I looked at it this morning it was all squished like a table got broke. That is why I reverted back. I just looked with both IE and FF on a mac (office e-mail machine) and will check tonight when I get home. (pc)

I had put several spaces between the top of the template and where the user would start to input his or her data. I did it so it would be easy to see where to start.

any thoughts?

Sorry, I probably have too many balls in the air. 3 simultanious edits at work, trying to learn wiki, trying to build my cab... I wish there was a spell check in the wiki. I will try to check the stuff before I submit more stuff. Yes, if you see a mis spelling or typo, please do. I would not police it to hunt for errors, you have enough to do.

Space Fractal, what does the <br style="clear:both;"/> do. I did not see this in the stuff I was reading.
I have not seen a command with the / at the end of the tag.

It breakout tables and images, so it dosent align to the right. When you use this tag, it breaked completly out and start a new line.

It was rarly used in the software section (so the images dosent ---fudgesicle--- up). Use allways that tag for making new tables

Spelling and grammer should ALLways corrected, so it ok to correct this type of error,even it on other review.

I think the ArcadeShop Amusements now look very good. Only problem is I can

I updated all Part Vendor Reviews with new templates. I added some spacer lines to the templates as it was getting hard to see where to cut and paste. Too many little black letters all over the place.  ;)

Dude!!!! Are you kidding. That was the point.
Bob Roberts rocks!!!
You have to also allow a certain amount of slack for personality here. If you want a space with all sharp corners and straight lines then go and live in a box. There are many great personalities writing on the BYOAC wiki that can write in a way that is enjoyable to read. I personally would not want to read an entire page of stereo instructions. It would be dull and boring. Yes 11 dooes go above the 1-10 rating. It was intentional. Bob would get a 10. I was going overboard because Bob has gone way beyond as well. This is a guy who was not just doing a "job". He loved what he did and still seems to even though he has retired. I do not think that anyone else on the list would get an 11. Bob gets an 11. That is unless Ken Layton got a web site. 

Bob Roberts shouldn't get a 10 because he doesn't accept Paypal and Credit Cards, which makes it virtualy impossible to order from outside of the US.
And he sells the Chinese Wico fakes which are junk (even the junk leaf switches that are used in those joysticks are available seperatly. Someone with the experience of Bob should know better.

I'm sure Bob is a great guy, has fantastic stuff on stock and great service. His information on his site is great and I deeply respect that he goes on after his retirement. But please, be a little bit more open to international buyers if you want that 11.

I'm sure I will get flamed for this, but this is my opinion.

By the way, I've added some info about Suzo not all the original info is correct about them.
Also added Zanen Electronics (with e-mail address !) and TNT Amusements.

Hope I kept to the standards...

Isn't that the entire point of the review process ?

The user tells of their own experiences with a vendor. It isn't up to ME to anticipate YOUR difficulties with a particular vendor when reviewing MY experience.

As for those sticks, he was deluged with requests for a leaf stick and eventually gave in (he even says that in his item description, IIRC).

He is an 11 for me and I am outside of the US.

Cheers.

I added Divemaster127 to the vendors list.  Also, I created a review for Divemaster127 and Ponyboy.  I'll do a few more reviews later.  I hope I didn't mess anything up.  Please feel free to change anything that I didn't do right. 

One thing that has been bugging me about the Wiki for a while now is there is no sound section.  We give no info on stuff like hooking a computer to car speakers or anything involving sound.  If I had the time I would immediately learn Wiki and get to work on a sound section, but unfortunately I don't and would like to see something on it.

The Wiki looks awesome guys!  I haven't looked at the Wiki for several months.  Keep up the great work!

Good point. I am knee deep in a project right now. When I am done I will have more time to devote to the Wiki. When I built my cab I did use an audio amp with car speakers run off an aux PC power supply. It would make a great set o pix for the tutorial. I'll put it on my mountain of stuff to get done. :0)
