Default We need to set up a FAQ section

Just for those same questions being asked and nobody have to search all over the forum looking for answers.

i didnt think many people checkout techinfo like that. if the FAQ had its own section, its more wisible for new members with questions.

I see what Steve is saying. It could be intimidating to new members to look for something under "TechInfo" when all they really want is an answer about the Upper Intake Manifold. Yes, it is technically TechInfo, but to a newbie, it could be a FAQ.

What if the TechInfo title was just modified? Something like: TechInfo/FAQ

Same results, more welcoming store front...

thanks! thats well put vital. I like that too. I was justthinking how a newbie would just be browsing through the forum and might not even click on techinfo as well. An FAQ section would be more dirct, my opinion

Maybe the techinfo just needs to be redesigned. It can be a pain to navigate at times, and might need something to make it stand out some more.

If you want a FAQ, work with BonneMeMn on his. If you think Techinfo is lacking, write the article that'* missing.

Techinfo WILL be revamped. It'* been on the list for quite some time. In the meantime, we're not adding a reference section to the board. It'* not practical.
