YES PLEASE. That would be so helpful. I'm finally getting a hang of what is what and I realize it should be learned but I would rather get in, tweak, and get back to playing. I do love lurking here but the jargon (not the concepts) is overwhelming . One simple labeled layout of a standard 18w would save hours of frustration.

Original - 2 channel, not footswitchable, tone and volume controls for both channels, tremolo controls on one channel.
TMB - Original with the trem channel replaced with Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass controls.
Lite and Variants - One channel, high/low inputs, Volume and Tone controls.
Minimalist - Like a Lite, but no tone control. Use the guitar's tone controls.

I'm a big fan of the way freshmeat.net operates. It's a nerd-based Linux site (I know, it goes without saying). People submit articles and Senior Members vote to determine the hierarchy of the articles. I've been told it's a fairly simple program that allows the whole system to work... not my field. But...
If I were putting together a Freshmeat-style article right now I would write about what 18watt variant most folks are building right now. I'd link to the schematic, the parts list, pictures of complete builds, gut shots, and to other relevant articles. I'd also provide a list of Vendors and plain folks that sell Kits for that build.
One other thing that confuses me, the Search feature in the Forum mode isn't very helpful.
But, I won't go away without saying, I love 18watt.com. If you don't change nothin' I'll still be fine.
