I'd noticed earlier but hadn't got around to asking .. . . . .

and yes all in one place is sensible :D
but just wait until the FAQ gets too long and you'll have to subdivide it as well :wink:

We’re still discussing the best way forward but it seemed like time to do something - not sure the wiki is user-friendly enough, whether it should all be member only, or splitting the FAQ section into models?

Maybe like Jim mentioned having a separate section of the forum with splits per model and one "all gt/5/6/ss1 etc share these commonalities" But can only be seen if your registered and verified?

May take time to fully have it tidy but would certainly be a good idea


Maybe under the umbrella of the "Tech Tree" area? :w

Maybe a sticky at the top of each section redirecting to the FAQs so mods aren't bombarded with 'where are' requests?

The FAQ section itself looks fine to me, easy just to search for what your problem is.

I did rename several stickies to try and give you a clue of which model it concerned.

Appreciate it is still under discussion, but my vote would be separate sections under FAQ for the various vehicles.
I liked that the stickies were under their respective vehicle section as so much easier/quicker to find only relevant info.
