Change the FAQ page

Change the FAQ page

I am proposing a change to the HELP > FAQs page


On the right-hand side of the page is a box titled Answer Questions




Although the button on it takes you to a search box to find answers, the linked names above take you to the top three kudos earning profiles for the last year and offer you the chance to send a private message.


This is becomming increasingly mis-interpreted by some newcomers leading them into believing they are addressing giffgaff staff members rather than fellow customers.


I think we need to either remove this section, or reword it in some way to help newcomers avoid any confusion and frustration when the members they PM inevitably cannot offer them a solution to account specific issue.

giffgaff; ergo sum

Great idea Darren, getting loads of PM's to help new users I don't mind but I'm not staff Smiley Very Happy


Good idea, although I've never got lots of PMs from people wanting me to help them Smiley Sad Wouldn't mind...

giffgaff head-scratcher

Same here, I help where I can, but feel that if it was better explained then people's expectation of who they were dealing with would be better managed.


Also it unfairly diverts queries from the main boards where there are plenty of others to offer help when I'm not able to check PMs


good idea but im not sure about the scary pictures at the top of the page


OMG ... I can't believe I have never ever clicked on the 'help'




All is clear now where all the cut, copy and pasting answers come from for queries posted!!   Smiley Very Happy   My suggestion is that the HELP word should be BIGGER !! LOL



PS.. back to your Idea Darren ...     like it! Smiley Wink

Why not just ask to leave the top members names and kudos but remove the link to pm ? ......But its your choice your on that page not us minions lol But kudo all the same
giffgaff head-scratcher

Unless you look like this, I'm sure we don't think of you as minions

Yip thats us Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

You guys would know better than anyone if it's a problem.

I ate the FAQ

I did have one today however I have very few now and this is the first since I've been featured on those boards.


I got a LOT more when I used to be on the monthly kudos leader board, so I think since darrenpainter and bonusball feature there then that's actually the source of the problem and not on the help boards.


I'm certainly not against this idea but I'm not sure it will cure the problem unless this is also done on the other boards.
