    The audience of this site has become less and less technically inclined. I think that a FAQ would serve them better than a wiki, as a limited amount of information is initially presented and the most common issues are highly visible. It requires more moderation than a wiki, but every single iPod/iPhone wiki is relatively disorganized.

    There are several free FAQ software packages that are searchable and allow user comments. Perhaps one of them can be installed and moderators and other knowledgeable and trusted individuals can be given access to update it.

    It would be really nice just to write up a FAQ entry to answer a question and link to it. That would mean that hopefully the same question will be answered fewer times.

    I know this thread is not as dramatic as the ones accusing the moderators of unfairness, but could one of the powers-that-be comment please?

    it's a very good idea, and vbulletin has a built-in FAQ system that might be usable. i'll examine the feasibility of doing something like this

    Yea I agree this would serve to less tech-savvy users a lot better.

    I will also second this notion. I think we can even start with the faq that planetbeing already posted. I like that one.

    Are you guys planning on compiling one big FAQ? If so, I suggest that creating a FAQ for each sub-forum would be just as good and less of a hassle.
