Creating a database of conversations

Hi,

Thinking of creating a database of whatsapp chat as a some kind of a manual so that people can refer it before asking a new repair question in the groups.

Is it doable with free resources?

Please suggest idea?

Thanks

Hi Purna,

Great question! Just to clarify, what kinds of information are you hoping to collate? Is it info about repairing particular kinds of products, info about running repair events, or something else?

Yes we would like to collate local repair information which was exchanged between participants.

Would you suggest any example?

We would like to use free tools to make the most of it.

Thanks

For information about repairing certain types of products, we tend to store this in our repair wiki. The wiki contains quite a lot of info about how to diagnose problems and fix many types of common electronic and electrical devices. The wiki is a free community resource; anyone with an account can contribute to it to share their knowledge.

It doesn’t really cover specific models of product though. For that we tend to use other sites, such as iFixit.

Would the repair wiki cover what you’re looking for?
