What the FAQ do you want? :D

OK, since I have got a grasp of the FAQ system at last (a hard to swallow bastard it is!), I am thinking of adding more FAQs to it because it's super handy for the end-user (ie any EAB member that doesnt need to update it :P). We could of build quite a FAQ database in there.

So I want you to say which topics would you like covered. I'm about to add Jope's little HD installing FAQ because it was quite cool, and I am open to hear new propositions (How about a "How to instal SFS" faq or something. I'd like that)

I also thought about including popular FAQs like the ones you find on the Aminet but I don't know if RCK would agree to this. What do you think RCK, would this be OK? Of course all the original authors get credited, this is just so the FAQ place can be the one-place to get all your FAQ needs sorted, with a dandy search function and all.

OK waiting for feedback.

@Akira, I've added a few links to 'Amiga Tutorials and FAQs to get you started' and fixed the few broken links on 'How do I transfer my old games to the PC? How do I transfer my ADFs to my Amiga?'

I'm fully agree to expand the F.A.Q as much as you want !
It could be a kind of guide database, and search functions are already present.

i'm ok with it too; 2 suggestions: write the links to different sections of the amiga emulation needs and not only for the search of adfs, like "go here if you search for manuals, here if you look for tutorials, here for demos" etc.. not many are needed i think.
more important: change the color and/or the size of the FAQ word on the menu of the board. bright red would do the trick.

more generally what i think that would be useful is that the people new on the board would feel compelled/guided to that entrance before to post.

They are guided to the FAQ in the welcome message they receive, but they are not forced to read it before they can post.

note: color updated.
