Just wanted to put an idea I had, and see what everyone thinks.

Would an "index" thread of FAQ and links be helpful to forum members? I would imagine it would look alot like an alphabetical index with links to relevant threads, reside in the FAQ (only mods can post there, so no discussion), and alphabetically arranged. Something like a hyperlinked index like you get in Acrobat help, for example.

For example, you'd see an entry for "Kappa" in the "K" section, and could click on a link that tells what kappa is and where it fits in the story of the Solstice. Or you might see a link called "SLA" where you click it and get the definition and discussion thread of what SLA means (short-long-arm, a type of suspension).

If you think this would be of interest, just post some things you might like to find in an index thread as entries, and we'll see what we can do. Just thought it might be a better format than the rather wordy, multipage "technical FAQ".

Some things that come to mind (few links active shown as example):



Bilstein
Convertible
- Pictures of Solstice Top
- Description of / Animation of operation
Dealership
- Delivery Process, New Vehicles
- Early Order Program/First 1000/Apprentice
Engines
Kappa, Archictecture or Platform Description, description, development of
Maximum Lateral Acceleration
Miata, MX-5, 2006 model year NC, Description and Specifications
Powertrain
Specifications, for Solstice, vehicle
Supercharger, description
Suspension, SLA definition/description
Turbo, description




This would not just show up overnight, but would be developed over time as more and more people have questions - it would be easiest to go to the index and see if it is here (I've found the search function to be somewhat unwieldy), and even the first 1000 could put a link in their signature.

Just thinking about ways to make it easier for folks to get to information quickly.

Sounds Like a great Idea... It would help newbies find answers quickly. (Actually It would help us all)!
Probably reduce multiple threads on the same subject also.

If you think it's a good idea, please take a moment and jot down a few subjects that seem to show up as questions often - or subjects you'd like to see explained or discussed.
