The review grid is live - https://permies.com/wiki/76171/official-permies-Seed-Plant-Source
After some testing, it looks like the review grid should accept any word in place of "seed source." It just has to follow "I give this _____ # out of 10 acorns." The "____" can be whatever you want: tree nursery, seed source, seed company, etc.

James, when you start a thread in any forum you can select wiki at the bottom of the reply box. It is listed in the bar along with 'options', 'attachment' and 'paid content'. It only appears when you are the originator of the thread.

Here's a Link
Mike Jay wrote:Yes, I think so. It shows up on the grid perfectly.
When I click on that link (or on the link on the main forum page), it goes to a wiki that starts with "This thread is all about Chief River Nusery". Then it shows the website and a blurb from their site. Then below that it shows your note about merging threads and below that my updated/edited text.
The only issue I see is the typo on their name in the Wiki (underlined above)
So I think it works, thanks!!!
SO, the way we want to do this is with our nifty acorns rating system! It's really easy, you just go to the book summary thread of the book you have read, and write the review with the very first line being "I give this book 7 out of 10 acorns." Or how ever many out of 10 you want to give it. And then write your full review. Boom. Done!
A couple of notes:
The books that have the most reviews will be moved to the top of the grid.
The people that have done the most reviewing will be moved to the left of the grid.
Once the grid is a bit more fleshed out, we will feature it extremely prominently within permies. Plus, I think that publishers will then be keen to have their books reviewed by permies.
Once we have books doing well, then we can do DVDs, then tools and other products.
The key is that this book review grid is a jumping off point for a dozen evil plots. We just got to fill out that grid!
So to do a new review, we should do one post that introduces the vendor and then do a reply to that with the magic words about X out of 10 acorns and all our experiences? And does the first thread have to have wiki selected?
