Folks, the FAQs are intended as 'concentrated' information on a specific resort, to make it easier for trip planners to find info on their resort in one place.

They're not personal chat threads. That's what e-mail is for. Or PMs. If a group of you want to talk amongst yourselves, just address a PM or e-mail to multiple people.
The thread has gone back and forth and back and forth and back and forth...it's been moved by mods between both the Community board and the resort board since it's inception, years ago.

Which is all fine and dandy..but there needs to be some sort of consensus.

This was never meant to be the "official/unofficial" FAQ thread for AKL/AKV. That thread was/is buried somewhere else on the resort boards.

But THIS thread gets so much activity (whether it lives on the community board or here in resorts) that it did become the defacto place for AKL information.

We'd all be happy to go over to the community board and have the thread, there...if the mods want to move it. Alternately we can start another, there.

BUT, the reason it's been moved back and forth is that the FAQ thread "dies" on the resorts board..and people end up coming to the community thread for info on the resort...which the mods say is off topic and should go to the resort board. When it happens enough, they give up, and move the thread back to resorts. Then a mod takes issue with all the off topic chat, and moves the thread back to community (after hacking it up for a while). Round and round we go...

Just give us direction..and we'll follow it.

FYI:

THIS was the "offiically unofficial" AKL/AKV FAQ thread.

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1633854

It hasn't seen activity since mid 2011.

Does AKL (Jambo or Kidani) have anything like this? Will I be able to ship something home or should I do it before we move from BWV? Thanks.
I have shipped items home at Zawadi Marketplace (Jambo House). I gave them the items, filled out the paperwork and paid the postage. My items arrived home without any problems.

They provided the box and packing material when we shipped our stuff home... but that was back about 5 years ago. Not sure if that's still the case.

It was my understanding that this was a "lite" thread and covered all kinds of topics... That there was an official FAQ thread out there, I am a member of the official one also.

Kimmar can probably recite the history of these threads chapter and verse. She's had to interact with the mods on more than one occasion on the subject.

I'd just like a consistent policy, consistently applied.

The main root of the problem is this:

The FAQ thread gets abandoned by whoever was maintaining it. It loses eyeballs. People ask questions there and don't get answers because nobody is paying attention to it anymore, and they see our very active thread and think "Hey..they can probably help!".

And I know that many of us have been loathe, community board or resort board, to tell those folks to go somewhere else to get AKL info because this is a "lite" thread. So we help them out, when we can. It seems to work out for everyone involved (though, admittedly, the people looking for info have to wade through some chat to find their answers).
