FAQ - Means: Frequently Ask Questions.
But this is so new, the questions have not been asked yet. So maybe my contribution should be titled: "AQ".
Yep! AQ: Anticipated Questions.
We're just getting started on the Cruiser Log - Wiki Project. We means Cruiser Log "Members".
What the heck is a "Wiki" anyway? A self description is found HERE
And who operates it? The Wikimedia Foundation, HERE
Where do we Cruiser Log MEMBERS fit in?
Well, as Lighthouse said, look up, at the top of your screen, just below the Blue Bar, left of Gallery, is our Wiki Link. Click on that and explore. At the moment there is not much to explore, yet. In time there will be with members' contributions. That simply means we have an electronic sailing and cruising reference book to write, and we need authors; authors for each and every related topic. Do your best, and base what you write, on facts.
If you have questions ask, we (Mods and Members) are here to help.
How do you ask for help? You can click on a MOD's name and send an e-mail or PM - Private Message, or you can simply post a topic if you are totally lost. Don't worry, you won't break anything.
And honest mistakes are easily fixed quickly, and readily forgiven by the Mod Team.
That is why we are here.
Where is here; where are the Mods? We are scattered around the globe, across the continents, and amongst the time zones, on purpose, with a purpose, to keep this board running smoothly and properly, 24/7/365. But, one or more of us, are usually only a click away. You can click on each Mod's name for each of our profiles, or from the home page of the forums, near the bottom there is a link to the Mod's. The Mod's are on land and sea, with a wide variety of multi-professional and trade(s) background(s), with their hearts in sailing, cruising, and assisting others. It would be difficult to hire such a team, anywhere. The payroll would be expensive, maybe prohibitive. There is no income, there is no payroll, we are volunteers, and we care. We donate time, hardware, software, and band width. The frustrations often frequent, but NOT from honest sailors or members. The rewards come from sincere members and helping them.
I find this Wiki
project most exciting.
We can write the book on sailing and cruising, topic by topic. This is better than searching thru old forgotten posts, that scroll off the current page. There are other sailing and cruising discussion boards, and thousands and tens of thousands Web-Logs (Blogs). Nobody else that I know of, No other Sailing or Cruising related Discussion Board has taken on such a project. Later, others will imitate, and attempt to simulate. So what. So be it. We are the trend setters.
