    Don't worry, this is a top priority, as soon as all the FAQs are ported I will make the link VERY obvious on the home page. and why not put it above the reply button.

    OK, that addresses one issue.
    I only hope the Wiki will be reasonably simple to navigate. The last attempt at a Wiki implementation sucked like a black hole.

    In addition, can we PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF JEEBUS make the FAQ as obvious as possible?
    A banner with bright neon colors and animations would certainly draw the eye of the n00b, but would look tacky.
    A simple link in the menu bar will never be seen.
    There has to be a happy medium in there somewhere....

    Also, there's a FAQ link on the top menu bar that links to a vBulletin FAQ.
    Get rid of it to avoid confusion!!!!


    The old CarPC 101 link throws an error saying I don't have permission to view it.

    Best place to put the faq link button is obviously right next to the "Reply" or the "Start new thread" buttons.
    Actually thats not a bad idea The vBulletin Faq is misleading, seems to be common to most vBulletin forums though, however I suspect that somewhere along the line, it was actually replaced with the adv because it is referenced here: http://www.mp3car.com/newbie/78795-n...-to-start.html.

    As a new user to this forum, I can say a faq like this one: http://www.mp3car.com/the-faq-empori...-the-faqs.html should be prominently displayed (and closed).

    A good portion of the problems I have experienced is in finding what I have already read, I know I read it somewhere on here but because there are so many aspects to this project its easy to get a little overwhelmed, especially when one knows he has read something about that. Of course it became worse with the update, but thats unavoidable. A wiki will go a long way towards making things easier.

    Oh crap I forgot to mention, the poll's don't seem to be working either.

    I notice another feature of other forums is they will merge posts if you add another post before someone else has posted, example are these 3 posts of mine, they should be automatically merged, I do know I can use the edit button to merge but not everyone does. Perhaps this is a feature that can be turned on and off, and you guys decided against it....

    ---------- Post added at 06:43 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:41 PM ----------

    I think?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Yup. Post consolidation is damn cool....

    Although I can see it being a limited-use feature. Most of us don't typically chain-post.

    Its more for keeping new people from annoying us and making our post table reach the 30 million mark.

    UPDATES

    posts to be moderated are now yellow
    in any thread view there is a triangle to jump to your last post in that thread
    for non moderators they see a huge "here is the wiki / faq" link on the forum home page
    the link for the forum faq (not about car computers) has been re named "how to use the forum"
    duplicate posts within a short period of time will be consolidated into one post and time stamped
    the video page is back - it aggregates all of our videos
    all the advfaq info has been ported into the wiki
