OK. I can update the original post in this thread to make it the FAQ. We don’t have to pin it right now, of course, but I want to get some consensus that I’m answering the right questions, in the right way.
As for collaborating maintainers, I don’t know the mechanics of how that works, but I’m guessing someone with admin privileges can edit posts? I’m happy to work with anyone to maintain a useful FAQ.
FYI, I’ve added a few FAQs to the original post in this thread, and will keep an eye out for more. Suggestions welcome! I’m being a bit lazy and just pointing at the definitive threads for the topics rather than typing out the answers myself, though.
Now that I think about it, this linking method could be advantageous. It means I don’t have to maintain a central repository of answers: anyone who wants to maintain an answer can keep it in their own thread, and I can just link to it. In other words, it spreads the work out to many threads, one per question.
I agree that this linking method is a perfect way to keep track of “interesting” threads, and also makes a pretty decent replacement for some posts that were formerly pinned to Categories. I’m just back from vacation and going through the Category rearrangement as soon as I catch up on email
I’ve experimentally turned this post into a wiki post, which means that anyone can add interesting topics to the original one at the top. Beware of concurrent edits though, as I believe last-one wins in the Discourse implementation.
@yawaramin I’ll promote this to a pinned topic and link it from the central FAQ that covers code of conduct and such. Are you ok with it remaining “owned” by you or should I transfer the posting name to discourse or similar. Thanks again for making this happen
