Most usefully, this all this goes in a sortable table (i.e. sort on any column by clicking column header):I was thinking of groupings based on offerings: Kits, motors, services, electronics, etc....Including a non-rocket category since there are several shops listed above that have nothing to do with rocketry other than what we use their stuff for
I wasn't suggesting any preferences, just a breakdown of who sells what sort of thing. Just broad categories, like kits, parts, motors, electronics, other. No personal giant workbooks or anything, just a table. If I want to see who sells motors, I click on the header to the "motor" column, and I can easily see all the motor vendors grouped together. Etc.That sounds like a nice idea, but a lot more work. Each of us would have fill in our own preferences. That is, lots of places have motors, for example, or parts or kits or whatever, and yet we still each have our own preferences for which places we buy them. We'd basically each need our own sheet in a giant workbook (to use Excel nomenclature). Then someone, presumably Angie, would have to aggregate it. That's all certainly doable, but sounds to me like more trouble than it's worth.
...Be aware that any list of rocketry vendors is a moving target. The vast majority of rocketry vendors are one or two person operations, so they come and go with considerable frequency. If you want to keep it up to date, recurring effort will be needed to prune dead links and add new ones.
