Experimental Wiki Page: How to Title a Hot Rod

The question "How can I title my hot rod?" comes up frequently on this board.

cboy specifically mentioned this in this thread, but I'm sure others have noticed the same thing.

We can handle this by writing an article, or by making a links page, an FAQ, or by various other methods. However, this time, I'd like to try something new: a "wiki".

A wiki is similar to a discussion on a bulletin board. However, in a wiki, everyone works together to edit the same "post". It's very easy to do. Some of you may be familiar with Wikipedia, the largest wiki on the web today.

Anyway, if you have any information on titling/registering hot rods, street rods, or custom cars in your state, region, or country, please add to the wiki page.

To do so, simply click here: How to Title a Hot Rod

And read the page. Then, just click on any one of the "edit" links to get started.

Thanks ZipZ28, looks good .

Rob -- it's part of the Crankshaft Coalition. Completely independent from Wikipedia, but uses their excellent software.

Jon,

Has anyone thought of contacting Street Rodder Magazine? They are in the middle of a series of articles on titling street rods and they might give us permission to post either a link or the actual article if we "give them the credit".

I've seen this article: http://www.streetrodderweb.com/featu..._registration/ , if that's the one you're referring to.

We can include a link to it without their explicit permission. Their article is more of a summary than actual step-by-step instructions for each state.

That article is just a synopsis of their multi part article that's in the mag. Last month and this month were the first two parts and they will be publishing two more parts in the next two issues which will go through the process step by step (in California) including all the forms etc.

Don't know if they would let us re-print the articles but it might be worth the time to ask.

OK, thanks Centerline. I thought that was the full article online.

The wiki uses a special copyright license that means that whatever is legally inserted into it becomes "free knowledge" -- it can be freely copy-pasted and shared. A magazine granting such free publishing privileges would be extremely unlikely. Even if they wanted to, they probably have pre-existing licensing policies that make it impossible for them to do so.

However, if the article is available in full on the net, we can place a link to it in the wiki page -- this is something that is extremely common on wiki pages.

Ideally, we should read the article, and use it as one of the references for a larger resource that will subsume the article. We can even quote small portions of text from it. However, anything more than that would constitute copyright violations or plagiarism.

My thought is that we have the publishing power to produce superior information to the mags anyway.

This experiment is going very well so far. We have an excellent section on Wisconsin hot rod registration (thanks cboy). And, we have information on Ohio and Texas now too. If we can continue at this rate, we will have a very valuable resource.

I've also added some more tech-oriented wiki pages that we can use as tutorials or how-to's. Here they are:

Also, be sure to check out (and add information to) these two new wiki articles that I've just set up: How to rebuild an engine, and Window removal and installation.

And, I wrote an article on wiki basics: 9 things you need to know about wikis.
