RFC - creating a community FAQ

Alon Swartz's picture

Over the years I've seen excellent replies to frequently asked questions on the forum. Some of the same questions pop up ever so often, and crafting a dedicated reply takes time and energy - and finding the already answered questions to either copy and paste, or link to can take time.

So, I propose creating a special FAQ in the community documentation section, which can be used by new users looking for answers, as well as a reference to point to when answering a question.

An example where the community FAQ could be useful, is JedMeister's answer here.

If we do this, I'd also like add a link in the official FAQ pointing to the community FAQ.

What do you think?

Link to Jed's answer is wrong

But knowing him from his answers in the forum I can imagine are pretty elaborated and complete. I think that could be a good start, but some work has to be done in the organization/navigation of the site to access the docs/faqs more easily (like the site more focused on appliances, etc). I posted some recommendations and others too, but they are lost in the forum. 

I know this require times and it's not very fun, but we can make it as community. 

 

My 2 cents...

+1 for FAQ! (+1 wrong link too)

And +1 for what Adrian suggests re the web site :)
