    I don't mean to shake my fist, but I do enjoy viewing pictures and videos of completed projects, but there is a great lack of these in the index for a completed project.

    It's nice to see the craftsmanship and the project in 'action,' wether that be pictures or videos or even both. Lets say it's an opportunity to show-off what you've made.

    I'll click on a project, and I'll be like, "Sounds goods, lets have a look. OH, it's another schematic, where's the rest?" :(

    Ring a bell perhaps?

    I am screening the new ones for higher quality. Personally I like pictures too, and I will insist on complete documentation being local.

    If anyone duplicates one of these projects and cares to show their efforts I will try to accommodate them.

    Thank you. If you delivered pizzas, they would not be cold.

    Much appreciated.

    I've also created a sticky with YouTube links, but no-one has yet sent any videos to put on. :(

    Does it mean my project will be deleted.

    Some are still being done but u know work load puts it behind.

    I guess the Admin could name it or make another Projects in development forum

    Once done, move it to the completed Projects or what ever.

    By the way, this thread belongs in Feed back...no?

    No, once you are in, you are locked in. Grandfather rules apply, but I want to up the quality. This is easy, and does the job.

    We still get submissions regularly from people who will not read the rules, usually beginners (as in their first post). I'll just keep moving them to the projects forum. If they are close to meeting the requirements then I will assist as best I can.

    The idea is not to keep projects out, but to have them meet the listed requirements.

    They will eventually come. My thought is those who want to put videos into their threads will do so, in their threads. We have a few YouTube videos now, but usually people are wanting to use them in lieu of proper documentation, which is a no no.

    I have posted YouTube links in some of my threads to show how the circuit looked after the fact. With modern phones and other media that has video capabilities it isn't hard.

    Because of the above I wasn't actively against the idea, but I didn't see it happening either. Lets be honest, most electronics just sits there doing a job, only metering and other LED circuits actually do something that is interesting to watch.

    Hello,

    Not every project is suitable for a video.
    Some can be very abstract and a video will not add any more value.

    @Rifaa,

    Actually, The Projects Forum is meant for ongoing projects.

    The Projects Forum has nothing to do with Completed Projects Forum. They are separate and distinct.

    That's going to be bear of a rock to get rolling down the hill. It will happen though. Next time I start an electronic project that warrants a video, I'll make one. Until you made the thread, maybe nobody had any reason to film their electronic stunts. Hard to go back in time and film a video of making something that's already made.

    I do have videos, just not electronic ones.

    If I make a project that has a video it will be part of that thread, or post. You are welcome to repost the link in that area though.

    Truth, there has been some confusion on my part between my The Completed Projects Collection thread and this one.

    It does not work that way. You have to submit it.

    We CAN move it from the Projects Forum to the Completed Projects Collection, but you must also ask for your project to be added to the Completed Projects Collection.
