Help Us

Some will be quick to criticise, others help us identify what is not working and maybe even make positive suggestions on how it could improve.

While we understand the former, we appreciate the latter more.

This is the Down To Earth way of sharing, teaching and learning from each other. 

Please use the chat to the bottom right hand corner on any webpage in the website  or the contact form to inform us of any problems/suggestions you may have

Some things about feedback

Not everyone can be right and a website is a good example of how we can develop an acceptable best for all of us

First lets focus on Menus, menuItems and their attached articles and ensure we have sign off over them and then we can focus on the look and UI experience

Code of Conduct


Google - Understanding why there are a few google docs instead of articles

  • The role of the google docs peppered throughout the site is because we are not sure what to put on the pages yet, we aren't even sure how the menus should finally look. This way everyone can contribute to the content, not just the coders
  • In time the content will settle and we may switch them out for articles

Current known Issues

 * Maybe some broken links here and there, generally all's good at the moment - Find anything, please drop it into chat



  • Support is usually immediate through the chat channel
  • Support documentation is currently being developed
