Hey Qzilla, could we discuss the format before hand so I don't have to change everything after I discover you edited what I've already put up please? --Felic 02:54, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't realize you were still editing.

Lots to add, will be doing this for a while during breaks while playing. Any recommendations for formatting? Tbh, I'm not too thrilled with your change as it will get confusing if somethign bolded starts at or overlaps the left margin. Maybe making the questions numbered? --Felic 03:57, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
You could try something like this:

small header

Please post information in their relevant location

While I'm glad this information is on the wiki, please, please, please post it in the relevant location (i.e., the "How do I dupe an item in the Object Window?..." information should be added to Object_Window) before adding it to the FAQ. Felic, I know you in particular found the CS wiki unusable because "I just have a hard time finding what I need there." (from the Mod Food thread). Please don't let this wiki become the same way - the information needs to be everywhere it will be useful (or at least a link), and if that's too much then perhaps the FAQ isn't a good idea.

Similarly, but not quite so seriously, should this be a category or page? For longer answers, I think a link would do. We also already have a Category:Solutions, Category:Tips and Tricks, and Category:Tutorials. Also, consider that articles in the category will appear at the bottom of the page which really won't help as the link needs to follow the question.

Edit, I had the same thoughts, but there is something to be said for a FAQ. When the average user thinks, 'How do I duplicate an item?' They may not think to look in the object window page, or even know there is a page for that (I didn't until your post). So I think a FAQ page is merited as it's where people will look for their... frequently asked questions. That said, info in this page should then be included into other relevant pages as well.
