As another way to try and catch up with the big backlog of FAQ tasks I’ve got, I’ve decided to try and spend an hour a day working on them.

To make this a (very) slightly more sane a set of things to do I’m going to drop any pretence of doing a KOW FAQ for the bits I wrote. I never play it and it’s Alessio’s baby anyway. I will, however, sort through all the FAQs for my own games.

There are a lot of comments to catch up with. Some have been answered, others partly replied to and still more have yet to be dealt with at all. Apologies for that. Going through all this will not be a quick process and I won’t be updating the public FAQ every day. I have, before now, spent more than an hour on a single question if it was complex enough to resolve. Sometimes an hour is only enough time to open the can of worms…

In order to keep you up to date, I’ll post a note each time I update a public FAQ. That way, if you subscribe to the main page then you’ll get all the updates (as well as anything else entertaining I might say by mistake). The subscribe button is up there. No, there, on the right.

I’m not going to promise them in any specific order. In all likelihood I’ll dot back and forth between them as the muse strikes me.Β Once they’ve got something to read they’ll get added to the FAQ page if they’re not there already.

Note that this might get a little chaotic for a bit. It’ll settle down soon enough, but not immediately. If you want a single, simple update for your favourite game’s FAQ, once a month on the dot then the best advice is only to visit the FAQ page once a month πŸ˜‰

    Would it be possible for you to get some help from fans ? As we are a lot on the Mantic forums to seek truth about the rules, I think we could help you to keep up to date some FAQs.

      It’s a lovely idea. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s practical to do this as a discussion group on an open forum. I’ve tried similar things in the past and it always ends up taking lots more time to act as MC for the debate than it does to do the work myself.

      What you might not realise is how much help you guys are anyway by identifying areas to look at and exploring ideas, so do keep on doing what you’re doing πŸ™‚

      What I am in the process of doing is building a small group of particularly dedicated and enthusiastic gamers for each family of games so that they can help me in a more directed manner. I used to run the Geeklist for GW and have dealt with the BBRC and similar groups. I’m thinking of something like that.

      The people who will be invited are those that I know from personal experience or from their online activities to be those with the Right Stuff. Whatever that is.

    Have you ever considered putting up a stack-exchange style Q/A, which is ‘like’ a forum except more geared toward providing a specific answer? You can set them up somewhat easily, nowadays. It’s more like a streamlined blog post with comments that is geared toward promoting the correct answer.
    e.g. http://rpg.stackexchange.com/

  4. I was curious if there is any communication between you and the PurpleGuerilla guys that are putting the digital versions of Dreadball out there? Not that it’s a big deal but it was be super awesome if FAQ’s and Errata were updated on the digital versions as they become available.

    • Quirkworthy says:

      Indirectly. Things tend to go via the Mantic crew. AFAIK the digital versions are as up to date as possible. The nice thing about digital things is that they’re so much easier to keep that way too πŸ™‚
