Float wheel group
Although the float wheel may be categorized as DIY due to its Vesc-based nature, I believe it would be beneficial to create a dedicated group for Floatwheels.
@cloud Sounds like a good idea :)
Anyone have any issues with the addition of a floatwheel group?
Probably sensible to distinguish between the models too so I’m thinking of:
To everyone; feel free to upvote/downvote my post here or comment your opinion on this change.
@lia i honestly don't know anything about them, so it would probably be a good way to learn.
@lia Adding various versions could be a good idea. Also, you might want to think about including the original float wheel kit.
Are we talking group so that the board flair can be added or an actual category for Floatwheel stuff specifically?
Did upvote, but ....
@Lia said :
... board flair can be added or an actual category for Floatwheel stuff specifically?
.... I were wondering about the same matter, to be honest.
1.) board flair (/ tag following the username) -- adv & adv pro separately for sure
[ Home / Groups ... ]
2.) an actual (sub-)category -- I'd vote for smth like
[ Home / Mods & DIY / Floatwheel ]
Smth like 'ReWheel' category is for now. That would be for general impressions and shareables about FW. Later on 'Repair' ; 'Sales' etc would mix up anyways. But those do not have so many # of topics so it would become a nuisance.
Just my two cents.
@sirgu I've been giving this some thought too and there's no real clean solution for Floatwheel based posts.
That said I think the best thing will be to add Floatwheel to the title where applicable (me and mod can edit them if needed) and tags will help differenciate them too. That way Floatwheel users can use the same categories without there being too much confusion.
In the meantime with no opposition I have added the 2 Floatwheel adv/pro groups.
No banner icon yet since I'm waiting for more clean images that fit the current theme before adding them.
Users that add the group flare will have a grey icon instead of the FM blue for the Onewheel models to help clarify it's a different brand.
With that in mind I guess DIY group should have a different colour too and the banner should reflect something more closer to VESC then the prototype FM Onewheel I put there because it was kinda funny.
I hope most are pleased with outcome.
All set. You rock, Lia!
@sirgu No problem <3
Hope this makes things better and encouraging to anyone wanting to share Floatwheel stuff ^-^
