Hi all -

We are in the process of rewriting the "FAQ" page for the new site project. The existing FAQ is very old, and needs to be updated.

I'd like to get the community's perspective on the "most frequently asked questions" that we commonly encounter on the board. I have a few in mind already. Please post anything in this thread - all ideas are welcome. Also, don't feel like you need to provide an answer with each question: providing the answer is up to us. ;)

Example questions:

1. What is Shipbucket scale?

2. What is FD scale?

3. How do I draw a ship?

4. How do I properly credit a drawing?

5. What is the best software to draw a ship on XYZ operating system?

6. What is the template?

7. Can I use the drawings for commercial purposes?

... and so on. Any/all suggestions are welcome!

"What is the ideal first ship?"

"Can I use other people's creations on my own drawings?"

"Why do I have to credit if I use someone else's hull but not if I use someone else's turrets/directors/boats?"

My thoughts:
"How to upload a drawing to the Forum?"
"How to upload a drawing to the new site?"
"Where to start posting drawings?"

How/Where do I find out about ship Badges?
What ships have Badges, and which ships don't?
How do I find out if a Ships Badge has been drawn already?
Are ships badges subject to copywrite and is shipbucket the copywrite holder?
