FAQ

Post by Renegadenemo »

Whilst getting (somewhat unfairly - guilty as charged) annoyed at our daily dose of what appear to be unresearched questions it was pointed out that some info can be hard to extract from our website without a fairly lengthy read. Although I'd argue that someone interested enough to ask the question in the first place ought to be interested enough to do their homework it remains a fair point. Also flagged up was that the FAQ button on the website seems to be the land that time forgot so in response to both points it's getting a good makeover. Then there's no excuse...

Having had a good dig through this week's mails this afternoon the nominees for the most FAQs are as follows.

1. When will BB be finished?
2. Will she run again?
3. Who will do the driving?
4. How fast?
5. Where will this happen?
6. Will she go on tour or be available for other events?
7. How is the BBP funded?
And best of all, this appears on the BBP guestbook fairly regularly...
8. How is the rebuild going?

Rather than sift last week's mails too does anyone have anything to add?

I know it's not an FAQ but the menu bar is missing a 'home' button.
Bangers!

I suggest:

"Are there plans to continue servicing and maybe run K7 at regular intervals after the initial proving runs on Coniston?"

The reason being for those viewing at 800x600 the menu bar fills the screen with 5 buttons across by 4 down if we add another button it would disappear off the screen.
If it can't be fixed with duck tape it can't be fixed

Enviromental impact? Probably less than someone driving 60 miles to see it.

Elegantly put Rob!

That's one of the eco-maniac's chief arguments - that if we just quietly stuffed K7 in the museum without fanfare half as many people would drive 60 miles to see her and so many more carbon atoms would stay locked away.

Funny how that argument does not seem to be a priority for the government sponsored Olympic games in 2012....
