    [​IMG] I'll be putting up a FAQ (frequently asked questions) page in the new design so, obviously, I need as many regularly asked SP questions as I can get to fill it up. I'm so used to answering them that I can't think of many right now, but I'm sure that they're still fresh in the minds of many of our visitors.

    To make it clear, the FAQ will be for and about the Sorcerer's Place WEBSITE, not these boards. The boards already have a good FAQ.

    List any and all questions below. Thanks!

    "How do you decide which games and books to cover?"

    Or the closely linked:

    "What is the purpose of Sorcerer's Place?"

    "Where do you get all your news scoops from?"

    Or the:

    "How do I get a picture?"

    "Why do I only have a gem while the others have pictures?"

    "Where can I get a picture"

    Stuff like that, or the always infamous:

    "Who is the member number one?"

    Is Sorcerer the same as Taluntain?

    How many visitors do you get on an average day?

    When will Sorcerer admit that he's farmed out the site redesign to the same guys working on Duke Nukem Forever? :p

    "What is #sorcerers"

    "How do I get to #sorcerers if I don't have Java"

    And the all too improtant:
    "Is Tal my true father?" :p :rolling:

    [​IMG] Falstaff beat me to it. Seriously, sheesh! It looks as if not only some people replying here didn't bother to read my post whole, but also never bothered to check the board FAQ! Go read it here.

    Now, keep those questions coming!

    P.S.
    I edited my original post to say "To make it clear, the FAQ will be for and about the Sorcerer's Place WEBSITE", in case it was not clear enough without the "and about".

    Tal...what about "getting a date with chev" in any way violated the strictures of your original post?

    I understood your intent, and posted what I considered to be an appropriate question.

    [​IMG] Well, it's not a frequently asked question. Actually, it's never been asked thus far. :shake:

    And considering the FAQ's not supposed to be a collection of funny questions and answers, it's not really fitting. Anyone interested in chev can contact him via his SP mail anyway. SP isn't his personal dating service. (Unless I missed something.) :D

    The questions posted should primarily be about the site & content on it.

    I started a topic in [the wrong forum] and I can't find it there anymore. Where did it go?

    Can I submit news/screenshots/ etc without being a member?
