Is there anyone interested in helping develop more user-databases. I have a couple of items on my wish list but not enough time to do them all. If you're interested, I can explain to you how you can make it happen.

Just for the sake of leading the discussion a couple of the authors I'd like to see in BW are Tacitus and Suetonius. Knowledge of Latin is not necessary for creating these databases, but it will take a fair amount of time.

Hi, Michael. I have had some interest in creating user databases, but have lacked the knowledge. Is there a FAQ somewhere on how to do it?

You can check out Chapt 38 in the BW help, Compiling Version Databases for the basics. Making them isn't really difficult, just tedious to make sure all of the formatting is correct. If there's something specific you want to convert into a database you can tell me about it and I will try to walk you through the necessary steps.

Thanks, Michael. I'm short on time currently, but I may be back to chat with you about this in the future (if you don't mind).
