I nod in agreement
It's buried in the nav bar across the top and people simply don't see it.
It needs to be somewhere else that is more visible and more prominent.
My suggestion is to put a link in the banner across the top where there are links for forum, Store, Blog and About Us.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
ok - good suggestion, it is buried.
The wiki needs to be updated - which will be done in the next week by Optikalfx and then we can add a link to that too.
Is it just me, or is it odd that the "How to Get Started" is at the bottom of the FAQ?
Play with it, 'til it's broke.
While FAQ and Wiki links in the large banner do not make sense, we could create another tab that encompasses the WIki, FAQ and any other knowledge materials, like a page for people to go to for CAR PC 101, which we need to add to our new website.
What would you call this tab, so that people know they could use it to do research?
AND by the way - I am always available via pm...if someone has an idea that requires immediate attention. That is often the best way to catch me.
What if we call the tab with links to Wiki, FAQ and CARPC 101:
I don't understand how a direct link to the FAQs in the large banner doesn't make sense.
That is the FIRST thing you want new members to see and read. It contains most of the core information that anyone coming into this hobby needs to know.
You could, and it would be a step in the right direction.we could create another tab that encompasses the WIki, FAQ and any other knowledge materials, like a page for people to go to for CAR PC 101, which we need to add to our new website.
I still think the link to the FAQ needs to be big, bold, and obvious to anyone looking at the website.
Burying it in a drop-down menu is going to make the FAQ just as hidden as it is now, which means that newbies are still not going to see the FAQs, let alone read them and take the information to heart.
The best I can come up with is FAQs & Information.What would you call this tab, so that people know they could use it to do research?
If you put the FAQs link in a drop down, the main link needs to include the recognizable letters: F A Q. Most people understand a FAQ and its purpose.
Unless someone actually sees a link that points to a FAQ (or a method of getting to the FAQ), they won't look at it, plain and simple.
You could always have it be a huge banner at the top of the forums for any members with less than 300 posts (or whatever number seems adequate), and then have it back in a FAQ menu button, that way those who really need to read it, have easy access to it and those that don't aren't bothered by it and likely already know where it is.
