The problem as I see it is that the average build thread may include all of these subjects and more, so aren't easily categorised. Having some posts on a subject in the main section and some in a projects section would end up making it harder to find information (although easier to find build threads to read).
What would qualify as a "project"? Does it include cleaning tubes or minor GRP repairs? Would fitting an A-frame or new electronics be a project? Or are you just thinking of more ambitious "build" threads?
Would a "Maintenance, repairs and rebuilds" section be helpful?
It would need to be unambiguous enough for people to easily know where to post and for mods not to need to keep moving things because they have been posted in the wrong place.
If I need to find a project o find it easier to go to google and search rib net that way. I did it the other day looking for the Macmillan project and couldn't find it easily searching the app so had to google it.
I may have been doing something wrong but that's how I find it best for me
I just tried it using the unbranded version of Tapatalk (because that's what I have on my phone at the moment) and it worked fine. I selected search, then chose the RIBs and ribbing forum and searched for Macmillan. The main build thread was seventh in the list. What happens when you try?
