    AntiOnline FAQ

    Does anyone else think that there should be a dedicated FAQ for AntiOnline, maintained by a group of regular members? I just think it might stop some of the ridiculous questions that newbies keep asking like 'How do I hack Hotmail' and also lay down some simple rules for posting on AO. At least this way we could direct users to proper answers, rather than just repeating the same old stuff again and again.

    Instead of writing "YOU STUPID NEWBIE" we could have "This question has already been answered in the FAQ." Just a thought.

    It's only good if everyone knows about and is prepared to read the FAQ if I or someone else writes it.

    The newbie section isn't enough? I've had many a stupid question answered there.

    I've seen that FAQ already, but I was thinking about expanding it to include specific AO stuff and also to make it more accessible and easy to update.

    Yeah, that FAQ by Ennis was bloody sensational, but something like what your talking about pwaring sounds good too. Like having something on the main page, linking to a FAQ that tells new users about the features of this site, what exactly AntiPoints are, about forums, member options, private messages, member status (Junior, Senior, etc) and other things general to the site.

    Sounds like a good idea. Hopefully JP will give his opinion on this, cos I think it would be beneficial.
