What if we had a directory with a short list of the guys who are accepted as knowledgeable and experienced in certain areas of wood working.

I’ve been following this thread, but, let’s say such a directory did exist, then how would it work?
So, somehow we’ve created a list of “experts” in the area of, say, “fuming oak” (I pick this because it’s one of the few areas about which I know something, but expert? no). Now you come along with a question specifically about fuming oak. How do you utilise this list? Send PMs to those on the list? Create a forum topic that is, somehow, targeted to those people? How?
PMs is obvious, if intrusive, but also suffers from the fact that, presumably, the answers would be PMd as well.
Or perhaps I’ve misunderstood something.

But, I did, I think, come up with a possible solution to some of the “how do you define expert?” problems, towit, allow the jocks themselves to put themselves on the “expert list” for a given topic, which would basically mean that they are prepared, but of course not obliged, to answer specific questions on that topic.
