I've noticed a great number of the same posts ****over & over**** ie: how do i make sparkly poi, every other person who re-invents meteors, and the like. Not that these people are ignorant, they just dont know, and what better way to let them know than a FAQ. Im just getting tired of the same questions, not upset by anyone, but I think the knowledge should be put out there. Anyone want to back me up? Or perhaps a holy war is in order.-PSM------------------"One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind."-Alphonse Bertillon[This message has been edited by psychomonkey (edited 25 May 2001).]

PSM,I am currently moving my graphics (over 300)to another server and have nearly finished. Next job on my list is to search through all the topics here and extend further the information in the Quick Guide A-Z section found at the top of these pages.Earlier this week I added a piece on counting the beats in swinging. I can see I have a lot more to do

I personally think there should be a message printed somewhere before the 'Post new topic' button which directs ppl to do a search!And the SEARCH button should be made much bigger. at least as big as the post new topic and reply buttons.For crying out loud!MOST questions have been asked before.Josh

There is some nifty software for allowing users to create and maintain a FAQ all through the web. The most popular is called FAQ-O-MATIC and can likely be found with a web search. It is completely free, too.Although this site *is* the cannonical source for into, it is still lacking in a few areas, so I think FAQ in any form is a good idea.-p.

Thanks for all the remarks,After trying to make the search and faq buttons larger I found this was going to be a major hassle with all the coding that was writtin in the UBB program.I decided to go with Josh's wonderful idea

and put a message to "check the FAQ and Search engine" before text fields that allows people to post a new image.PJ - I know the site is lacking in a number of areas and I am always looking for ways to improve and make things easier for people. I am working on it every week day
