Q: The project instructions state that we should "Choose the Image No Data form type for images where there is neither keyable data, nor data which is not being keyed but will be marked Cover Page, Section Header, etc. Examples include blank forms, Crew Lists, or Ship's Logs." Does a form count as blank if the ship name is filled in at the top of the sheet with nothing else written on it? Or would it be a Cover Page in that case? --Katerimmer 09:17, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Answer: Only if the forms are blank should the record be considered an Image with no data. So if the record is not a Ship Information form but there is information written on the record then it should be classified as a Cover page, Section header. Annafechter 17:08, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Q: I got a two-page document that appears to be some sort of permission form allowing for some sailors to use the owner's fishing boat for a fishing expedition. I'm thinking I would key this form under "Cover Page, Section Header, etc." but I'm not too sure. The only keyable information on the form is: the owner of the boat's name, the skipper's name, and a witness's name. What should I do?
