    Default Faq creation Guidelines

    So that we can develop this in an efficient manner, I'm proposing the following structure.

    1 question per thread.

    Threads initial post should indicate:

    - Art (EPAK/Tracy/JK/CK/OK/etc)


    And consist of the following format:

    Question
    Art
    Answer

    Example:
    Who was Ed Parker?
    Art: EPAK
    Answer: ......

    We can draw upon the Rec.Martial-Arts FAQ for guidence.
    http://www.faqs.org/faqs/martial-arts/faq/

    - In order for this to be accurate, sources MUST be cited.

    - Entries must be original material. We cannot simply copy what someone else has writen.

    - References are greatly appreciated.

    Thread titles should reflect the branch as well.
    Good: EPAK-Who was Ed Parker
    Bad: Who was Ed Parker


    Initially, moderators will oversee this, however, if the project takes off, I would like to set up a couple FAQ Maintainers who would handle the evolution of things.

    i will start one with the history of word use, systems and development.
    it will take me a few days to a week to get something comprehensive.

    Ok Boss, so is this supposed to be like writing a short paper (including a list of references)?

    So do internet references count? What if the answer I already found on the internet can not be improved on? That's the best answer. Can we site the source in that case?
    This is how I wear my Kenpo suit. Still trying to learn how to put it on and it's a little wrinkled, but it is starting to feel pretty good on me.

    Can it be rewritten in your own words, summarized, etc? I don't have a problem with including someone else's work, if they have the definitive answer, but, we might need their permission to include it as more than a link.
