    [​IMG] Thanks to all who have submitted the questions. Many of these will be in the new FAQ. I'll be de-sticking this topic now, but feel free to still add anything not here yet.

    "What are the benefits of registering?"

    "I know about a mod not linked to on this site. What should I do?"

    "Can I write an article for you?"

    "A link is not working..."

    From liberals: "I have a death wish. Where can I find Hacken Slash?" :shake:

    Here is a suggestion:

    Type up the Mystra commands for registering, setting passwords, etc. on the FAI part of SP. It would be SO much more easier for new members (and ops trying to guide them), if the steps were clearly laid out, from A to Z, so there's no confusion or question about the process.

    Or have a small section of the FAQ devoted to the chatroom, there's quite a few questions that come up on an awful lot.

    "I got banned from the chatroom. WTF was that for?"

    "What should I do if I disagree with any of the chatroom rules?"

    I was thinking more along the lines of:

    Q) How do I register with Mystra?
    Q) Mystra doens't recognize me anymore, what do I do?
    Q) what's a public?
    Q) Do I have to pay for mIRC?
    Q) How do I set an infoline?
    Q) How do I remove my infoline?

    And such like.

    Q) Does SP give technical support?
    Q) Can Taluntain scrub my socks?
    Q) What is defined as SPAM around here? (Believe it or not, but almost every board has a different defination).

    Anyway, I believe you have it all covered. If people cannot figure out the rest, then they probably were doomed from the start. :D

    [​IMG] There's a link at the top of every page of these forums (even the page where you post a reply I see :) ). It's on the right side below the ad banner... it says "faq". :eek:
