Are you volunteering to be the focal point like you
were with those "Surveys" that you conducted.
We could all send you our "favorite" questions
(OFF-LIST, of course).
But then comes the hard part. Getting the entire List
to agree upon the "answers".
Don't you agree, Michael, that if one guy was editor
and was able to put this together in one total package
that it would make Art's job a lot easier?

....does this group have a FAQ for newbies?
Hi Gary, Art & list members,
I would like to go on record STRONGLY
supporting a FAQ section to be placed at Meteorite
Central. This would be a very rich data base that
would also SAVE a lot of time repeating every 6 months
to 2 years responses to serious questions such as the
one asked recently about how to remove saw marks from
part slices - how to polish a specimen, how to prevent
rust in irons, etc, etc, etc.
These, and other similar questions are totally
legitimate and inevitably are asked repeatedly over a
period of time as new members join this group.
It just doesn't do to respond, "We covered
that 2 years ago - look it up in the archives" -
because such a search would be so tedious.
However, with a FAQ section - perhaps arranged
alphabetically (or numerically?) such questions COULD
be referred to the FAQ section.
Of course, this means MORE work for Art, who
already gives selflessly of his time and bandwidth. Is
this feasable, Art? If so, would you want any
assistance I or others could offer in helping to
set it up?
Best wishes, Michael (PS: Nice site, Gary)
