You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.
Help is on the way. Our new FAQ section just went live.
This is a full-fledged menu category, so we’re not messin’ around. We toyed around with a lot of formats and plug-ins, but, in the end, our incredible programmers ruled that the old-fashioned approach worked best: a hard-coded, one-page display. (Knowledgebase, shmoledgbase.)
Getting the cruise FAQs written was a task. I had some notes from my book, but they were outdated. I’m really grateful to the forum advocates who reviewed the Q&As and helped update the information, including Judy Nagy, Carol Blue, Donna Williams, Laurie Bixler, Neil Maly, and Grant Ritchie.
You’ll notice a few things about the FAQs that are different:
Easy formatting. Everything is on one easy-to-read page. It’s also easy to navigate. Just click on the question and it takes you to the answer. Why did we do it this way? Easy access. Printing it is a cinch!
No comment. Comments are permanently disabled. Although I admit it might be fun to have comments running under the FAQs, I don’t think the discussion would be very productive. If you see information that’s out of date, please notify me by email. I’ll fix.
Room for more. There are so many topics we can cover in our FAQs, I hardly know where to begin. How about airlines? Oh yeah, that’s next.
By the way, if you want to be one of our FAQ editors, please let Grant Ritchie know. You’ll need to be on either our editors group or our forum group. We’re also looking for someone to lead this project, so if you have time and want to create the best darned knowledgebase about travel — well, here’s your chance!
