Frequently asked questions - Why not?


Recommended Posts

Weird. With a big forum like this, I don't see any FAQ that's sticky.

More and more, many new commers join the forum and to prevent a same/ similar question posts and keeps asking, and to save time for a lot of people here why don't we have a FAQ sticked? Do we have a mod who can take care of this?

Thank you.

I've started such a topic some time ago, see here: http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1779

If only 30% of user's forum would contribute with some "how to" we could do a nice structured wiki page, but seems like we can't start it rolling. :sad:

Admin doesn't have enough free time for board management, but let's see the bright side of it: the devs are still releasing and that's :ugeek:

I could help out with the wiki pages. I've written FAQs before so maybe I can be of some help. I've only just begun using Xpenology for the better part of a month using virtualbox but it's pretty fresh in my head considering I didn't exactly get all the information about installing without reading multiple posts or having others answer my questions. I see Andy (site admin) has a Wiki page but it's blank. Any other takers for topics?

I think I could do a write up about the HP n40l/n54l. So bios mod, etc etc.

But more important let's first discuss the topics of the wiki. Then we need to find people who can contribute.

 

Good start, I made some edits
