The FAQs system is flawed at best

First of there's this wee link at the top that says FAQ. Not noticeable enough.

Second, where did all the previous FAQ threads went to, like the readme 1st, cody's whdload faq, and amiga today faq by korodny? Am I missing something? If I am this is wrong, since this is the thing that should be noticeable as first thing in the EAB, and currently it isn't. It used to be! I couldn't find anything easily in the FAQ link. It should be more straightforward.

Anyway, clue me in. I want to tell newbies to READ THE BLOODY FAQ ;D

I think what is ticking me is that you can't READ any FAQ, you have to search through them (if any). You don;t even know if the topic you are looking for is covered to begin with, back then I could see the list of covered topics.

I still think it would be a much better idea to send an automatic email to all newly registered users providing links to the FAQs and urging them to take note.

IT would stop alot of needless work.

Stick out tongue

So, can you say it yet Akira? Can we ask to put in a request to d/l C64 r**z in the Zone (whilst posting it in "Amiga Scene"), yet?
