I've noticed recently a lot of questions coming up time and time again. I feel it would be a good idea (for someone with better post organization abilities than I) to maybe start compiling a FAQ section to sticky. Some recent questions that come to mind are, Linkshells: Where to obtain one, how to invite people and how to promote people. Macros: How to make one, what are text commands/placeholders and how do you change gear with/cast abilities with. I actually started to make a FAQ post but it just looks ugly when I try.

Feel free to post any other questions you've seen come up a lot.

This is a good idea, but shouldn't be necessary now that the admins have opened up forum search to everyone, not just premium members. Many of these guides already exist, and a quick and easy search should yield results readily.

True but to be realistic how many people have we seen use the search function >.< it's there but many people still don't use it. Not to mention for some of the people with multiple questions having to search and check multiple threads for something that might not relate can be a hassle.

In my experience as a moderator on a non-gaming forum, people ignore Faqs and Stickies more than they do the search function.

The ability to search has been just barely given to us 'pleebs.'

It will take some time to re-teach people to use it.

But right now a lot of stuff IS new so even the FAQs aren't really that all inclusive.
