We’ll put everything and maybe drop a little note next to special ones. :grinning:

Edit: Another one of my bad ideas.

Let’s try to keep personal comments out of the Wiki. I made the mistake of putting the Dareno comment there, and it can get out of hand. Instead, let’s throw props here in the comments.

Sound fair?

Why do we actually have Enertion up there? Do we really want to send people to them unwittingly?

If someone chooses to remove it from the all-user editable wiki, no one could stop them.

@elitejarcool is Sydney based and fixes ESC’s and diagnoses issues, too. He has spare MOSFETs, certain resistors among other components and a reflow station to take care of any obvious issues, and the ability to troubleshoot almost any esk8 issue.

In addition to the 63mm Evolve mounts, I can also take on custom boards every now and then if needed. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the @, my man!
