It's time for FAQs - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I'll chime in here also, LOL!

I think that having the information collected would be very helpful. I have been on the website for quite a while, but am still learning and there are many things that I've read about but haven't tried to do yet.

I would love to have "the best of . . ." posts so that I could find all the information about something in one place instead of having to do a search and read through many threads to find the details of the best way to do whatever it is I'm ready to tackle.

Also, and I've seen this on the couponing boards I frequent, it will cut down on the number of times the same questions are asked, because many people will check for information first.

The other advantage to the members is that when someone DOES post the same question again ("How do I get RED icing?" or "What is MMF?", etc.), one of us can say "see the sticky at the top of the page" or "that information is in this forum", rather than 10 people having to take the time to retype all the information.

I think of how often I refer people to Antonia74's tutorial on making and decorating cookies, and having something similar for all the basics, that could be added to if necessary, would be a great thing for what's already a fantastic website and reference!

Just MTCW,
Laura.

I think it's a wonderful idea.

I'm pretty darn good at manipulating search functions to find what I'm looking for - but because this is such a large (wonderful) community it's sometimes difficult to weed through to the good stuff.

And I would also agree with Doug that the articles are a bit different than a FAQ.

I know it would be huge work - but I think would be a real asset to the site.

I agree, it's a great idea! I have dial-up, and so searching through old posts is super slow. I also have limited internet time, so I often ask a question that I know an answer is probably out there for, in the hopes that it will get answered faster than me looking for it! And I have found that when I need a specific answer to a problem, the search option doesn't work well for me. User error, I am sure, but I can't always find the info i know is out there! Just my 2 cents, thanks!

An FAQ section would be nice, but right now I don't think we have the "man"power to get it set up and maintain it.
I'm sure when Jackie gets back in town her and Heath will discuss this idea further....just give them a chance.
