Frequently asked questions about the FAQs
What is a FAQ?
FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions; a FAQ is a document listing common questions about a topic, along with their answers. Each Friday, UCS sends out a FAQ on some technical topic of interest.
How do you say "FAQ"?
You can spell it out, or pronounce it as one word, which rhymes with "hack". Either way is considered correct.
I have a question! How do I get it addressed in a FAQ?
Just email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also accept praise, criticism, suggestions, and any other form of feedback you can fit into an email message. However, reports of technical problems should be directed to the UCS help desk instead; the FAQ address is intended for "how-to" questions.
Can I repost the FAQ's elsewhere?
Yes, you can repost any of these FAQ's that have relevance outside WOU, provided that you do the following:
Please note that these FAQ's aren't exactly what was sent out by email; they have been reformatted, some errors and omissions have been corrected, and some of the FAQ's have been updated to reflect changing conditions. We will do our best to keep them all current.
As of November 2006, we are converting the FAQs to the new web format and making sure they are up-to-date. New FAQs are being sent out again as well!
Where can I find the FAQ about...?
As of April 2007, the navigation menu has been re-organized to make things easier to find. Also, here is an alphabetized list of all FAQ topics:
You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
