Should we have a FAQ?

The Blue Documentation has not kept up with the board versions.

Agreed. Lots of folks have 'complained' about that.

With all due respect to them, the developers are likely not going to update the Blue docs as we would like them to. Nor should we expect them to! They have stated that they have families, this is a hobby for them, and they don't have time. What is more, the devs are concentrating on the important tasks of improving the hardware and software. And we should be grateful to them for that.

A FAQ or other detailed help docs should be done by others. (That's us, people! :-)

I have personally experienced that when I either invented or help develop a product --and then wrote a manual for it-- it was utterly confusing for the end-users. Why? Those in that position assume too much. We leave out important details. Any manual, etc. should be written with help from those struggling to use what we created.

I will help as I have time. But I call on others who struggled with figuring out how to get their System Blue working (like me) to roll up their sleeves and help. :-)
