Guys :)

In the short time i've been on the site I've already seen several new owners ask new owner quetions worried about new kittens or new adults.

Why dont we have a 'stickied' FAQ question section in the info section or where ever is most relevant, you could ask members to submit their tips etc & then the moderator team could then compile the FAQ...

Just my thoughts

Sounds like a good idea.... if someone wants to write it, I'll gladly sticky it 8)

I could look at creating a wiki, that may have to wait till we have our own hosting though.....

Gavin,

Well, we could all contrubute to the 'FAQ section' it needs to be basic simple & informative, going onlong the lines of mainly 'your first bengal tips'

it could be created in steps...something like..your kittens first day with you & do's & dont's & then then move onto another step several days along the line etc etc, it would not be a complete be all & end all guide, but something simple we can point begineers to so it calms their worries & concerns about their new fluffballs.

that's a good point, if we have a FAQ section, we can all add our own topics relating to issues we think people may want to know, especially things that we find ourselves answering questions about regularly.

A prime example of regulary asked questions would be ... my new cat kitten is shy or my rehomed cat doesnt like to play with me etc etc ...you could do the FAQ in a simple Q&A section basically have 1 question & 3 or 4 potential answers, Additionally you could also do this when a new member joins.

'Hi Welcome to the BCF take your time to read & enjoy the forums, Please see the the link below for any frequently asked questions about a new cat or kitten.'

Sounds like a wiki is the ideal solution - everyone can edit it then and moderate changes....

I will look into what's required to set one up....

Yes I did that for my forum about chipmunks, sadly people often don't take the time to read it :roll:.

But at least you can just show them the link instead of wrinting out the answer again :lol:.

A big one would definitly be "how to introduce my new cat to the others ?" ;)

Edit : bad spelling corrected :roll:

Exactly, what I was thinking.

My doll forums have "sticky"s for FAQs as well. Like AnneC said, they don't always get read immediately but they are handy to link to.

I also try to encourage the use of the "search" function above. Sometimes people who aren't accustomed to Forums aren't aware that they could find past discussions helpful...
