FAQ and Glossary no longer available Quote | Reply

There's a post in General where a new guy is looking for the glossary.
In trying to find it, I found that the links for both the FAQs and the Glossary aren't working.

I'm guessing it's because of the revamp. Are they going to be back or are they gone forever?

Hey,

Nah, we definitely have no plans of removing them.

Could you advise me as to whether you are following a link to the areas and they're breaking (if so, where are these links) or if you just can't find them?

The FAQ should work through the help menu on the top right: http://www.dropzone.com/help/index.shtml

While the Skydiving Glossary is accessible through the safety articles at: http://www.dropzone.com/...etail_page.cgi?ID=35

If you see dead links that are supposed to link to these, just let me know where and I'll get on fixing them.

The FAQ link I tried to use is in the "Read this first" Thread in the Announcements Forum

http://www.dropzone.com/...;;page=unread#unread

I then seached the term "Glossary" and found this:

http://www.dropzone.com/...p;sb=score&mh=25

Numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 & 10 are all the same thread, which has a broken link to the Glossary.

I obviously don't expect you to go through all the posts in all the forums to fix broken links.
But it is the easiest way I know of to find the Glossary. I don't see it on the main Safety page

http://www.dropzone.com/safety/
Or am I missing it?

I will go and make a change to the URL in the Read First thread.

For the other threads mentioning the glossary, yeah, we can't go and edit them, but we can think about possibly implementing a re-write rule.

The glossary is in one of the subsections of the safety section.

Safety > Students > Glossary
