Well, as you can tell, I have been working hard on the infrastructure of the site. Improving page speed and usability, and I think right now, I am pretty happy with it..... did I actually just say that? lol

So now, I am onto the next mission, new guides on the front end......

A lot of the guides here were written within the first 6 months of me starting the site. I read them now and think god damn man, you can do better than this! From the writing, the info, and the graphics. I have learned a lot since then, and think everything should be rewritten. There about 130 guides, so it will take a while. 

The thing is, this gives me a fresh chance to start right at the beginning, and re write them so they link up nicely together and can be followed guide by guide. Some better pictures now Hench is here to help me make them too. 

I want to make one guides at a time, and I need your help. This is my plan:

You guys tell me what you think a brand new grower needs to know. The very basics of how to start growing your own weed. What would have been helpful to you on the first day of grow school? lol

I then write the article, makes pics and all that, and get it checked out to make sure it has everything you need. 

Then, I intend to make a YouTube video of that guide, like the germinating cannabis seeds and life cycle vids. 

It going to be a mission, but its one of those that has to get done. I would like to see a new guide published every week, but I need you guys to tell me where to start and where to go next. 

I want you to think of the site as a blank slate, like there are no guides here, and we are starting from scratch, what should our first post be Smile

After the first post is done we can figure out where we go next. Eventually we will have everything covered. 

If you're up for it, I might start some kind of team thing for this. Some one to edit, make pics, do the writing, spell check that kind of thing. But it is a mission! And I am a fascist with high expectations 😉 So I wouldn't bother volunteering lmao. 

Thanks in advance for the input everyone! I will keep this thread running so anytime you have ideas for  new guides, you can post them here. But for now, what should I write for some one who is starting out?

I would start with a intro to growing and how to use the guides during the progression of the grow   cannabis stages of growth, lighting schedules, Proper environment, how to find help when needed, necessary equipment for a successful grow and why each item is necessary. Mediums, How to water corectly, nutrients, germination, seedling, veg, topping, LST,  flower, Harvest ,Drying , Curing. then more advanced techniques.

So the new grower can read the appropriate section for the next stage and know what to expect.  If they follow it in order they should be have sucsess

Wow ... sounds like quite an undertaking.

You know an idiot's guide or a 101 would have been handy for me when I first started. I got it into my head I needed a greenhouse. I bought a second hand 'lean-to' one, dismantled it, sweated my bollocks off sinking it into the ground 6 inches to go beneath the eaves of my garage. All to find out it was going to be of very limited use for me for growing weed. 

Anyhow. Not much expertise here, but willing to do whatever I can when the time comes 👍

 

Time to grow old disgracefully.

@macky Man FairPlay to you bro ...

not a man to shy away from a challenge of achieving a dream !

respect that all day long bro 

quite a task to visualise an overview but I have one idea which may be of use, or not lol

in the beginning you ask what a newb might want or need to see..? This might be a lot of different things to different people so maybe a questionnaire to direct someone to the best starting point for the individual  but kept basic and to reflect what percys might offer them..

for example a few questions to complete like

Is this your first grow? 

How much Percy do you want to consume / grow each month / year or whatever?

what type of cannabis do you enjoy / want to grow?

what uses is the cannabis being grown for ? Eg edible / medical / rec/ 

What kinda budget would you like invest?

Do you want to grow organically ?

The answer given might link to relevant reads or maybe reviewed by admin then directed / helped accordingly 

I’m not tech savvy so only really know this kinda work takes ages of screen work time so far play and totally understand if this idea is shite lol or just not workable haha

without understanding individual needs difficult to give the right info first off and not overwhelm a new grower.. we all been there in sure lol

Prob be good to include some serious bud porn also from members gallery etc to show em what lies ahead 😉😎

All the power to you bro 

#Percys forever 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@macky, Yes basics. Even starting with a glossary. It's going to be hard, but maybe a structured path or direction generally speaking with branching  paths to different mediums, styles, envior.  Don't know. Definitely fresh pics, every bodies got the standard innerweb sick plant pics and such. But a most excellent idea. If you build it they will come. You have the means and the drive, that's awesome, congratulations.

While updating all the guides, a couple of links could be updated for Amazon along with multiple source links for international shoppers.

Love is all that matter, with it you can achieve anything.

Knowing the difference between autos and photos would been handy for me when I started, I just went online and bought seeds and planted them, one in a gallon drum with the top cut off and the other in a small flower pot. I was in veg before I found out what auto and photo ment, I had to email the seller to findout if I bought autos or photos. then I found out I could do with bigger pots and lights too, and a bigger cupboard.haha That was before I found percys tho.
