RE: [DML] DOA Technical content.

Very true, but again, the problem is discerning good information from bad.
That's why I like the idea of simply having such a committee provide a DOA
stamp of approval to existing content.  Just a way for a dedicated group of
volunteers to help make DeLorean ownership more appealing by providing
direction for new and old owners alike, so that they get the right
information from the start.  As Marc stated, we should be cautious to ensure
that no vendor favoritism would be at play here, and I still don't know what
we can provide to volunteers as an incentive to contribute to such a content
review system.  Our liability would be covered under our club insurance as
well as a thoughtfully written disclaimer, so that shouldn't be an issue.


Topics that have multiple but conflicting "correct" answers would still be
debated on here and other forums, same as always.

I dunno... nobody gets paid for responding on the DML, yet it's a terrific
if unwieldy resource. The two problems are, first, that there are differing
opinions. I've even noticed that among different vendors, and I'm sure many
others who have bought and installed something not from their "usual
DeLorean vendor" then drove it in for service can vouch for the fact that
this is so. The second problem is that the vendors are quite hospitable and
helpful over the phone... no problem there... but reply only sporadically if
at all in an open forum such as the DML. Kudos to Dave Swingle and Toby
Peterson who have been faithful to continue to do that, even though they
each have their hands full as vendors these days, not only as longtime
knowledgeable owner/mechanics. I signed on to
one of the "other" internet forums once for about 40 minutes, until I
read that nothing is to be quoted from there for any purpose. I signed
out rather than be accused plagiarizing stuff to post to the DMCTech site.



I like the idea, but am interested in what incentives we can or should offer
to people for their contributions to such a committee.

I believe we'd need one in order to maintain consistency within such a
