Tool Template Wiki _ farm bike

Primary tabs

Topic Type: 
Information

A recent post tool post to the Tool section wrote over the "tool template wiki" - with "Farm Bicycle" a totally understandable thing to do. The template is a bit misleading - ideally it would be the formatted starting place to begin tool documentation, etc. but at the moment it is just a reference, and new tools need to be created without formatting by selecting the "+Tool" button in the upper left corner of the screen. I was not able to gather who made the post because the edit was only in the tool profile section which does not track edits.

I rewrote the tool template profile but here is the content for re-posting. and hope it will be!

Here is the text from the profile:

"Low tech farm bicycle.
Made for more ergonomical weeding/planting.
Pipes are detachable.
Still under construction but promising.
Like to hear about similar experiences."

Hey there Dorn,

Looks like the tool template is still showing up as the farm bike (in the url and on the tool profile itself). I figured that before I also start messing around with fixing this, I might just ask you to sort it out since it seems you already have your brain on it.

Thanks,

Daniel

I think there is some confusion with how to use the template - I edited the tool profile again with language that I hope helps. With luck the poster will try again by posting a new tool rather than editing the profile again. Any idea who is posting the Farm Bike?

Do you have any sense of how easy/difficult it would be to track these changes? Or, alternatively, why the site is set up this way?
