May I Suggest A New Format For Asking Questions?

Tue Aug 28, 2001 11:08 pm

It becomes a pain looking through the questions sometimes. May I suggest some kind of formatting.
For instance, w/the question 'Can emergency exits be opened inflight?'. Since this is a general question - write it as follows:
General: Can emergency exits be opened in flight

If the question pertains to a specific aircraft, write as follows:
B737-300/500: Nose Ldg gear Door Question

If it's multiple aircraft, but sort of aircraft specific, try this

Boeing Narrowbody: Comfort compared to Airbus

Hey,

That format sounds good, I'll start doing it if you will.

Just imagine if that could work in the Civil Aviation forum!

Sounds like a good idea, but the topic box is already restricted in space, so that would restrict the interogative part of the topic even more!

Just my 0.2 canadian cents!

Maybe use the AT-100 standard for identifying subjects.

21 for air conditioning, 22 for autopilot, 23 for communications....etc.

I'm sure anyone can find the code on the internet somewhere. The advantage of this system is that most aircraft maintenance personell are already familiar with the codes, and they could save some space!

This should be in the non-aviation forum.

I think this is a valid tech/ops topic. I don't think any of the "other" forums are not structured as a "question and answer" type format to the degree that this one is. Some sort of organization would help.

How 'bout Fault Reporting Codes?

BTW, good idea, but would involve quite a bit of pre-thought and organization on the part of the poster.

Another good reason to keep this question on the TechOps Forum!!

Good Suggestion.
Maybe the post could include a column for "Aircraft type" & "System".
If its a General Question it could be stated so.
That would be great.
