I almost checked the bottom option there.. just for the pure fun. This is why I never go to trouble shooting or game discussion etc.

I fully agree! Its an excellent idea, but also a time consuming one (I feel another squad will be forming soon) But let's not hassle too many tasks at once. Once some translation crews are over with translating, and some people volounteer to do it, we can form a team for it. Would be very useful. We should also brainstorm about the best way to do it and connect to the page.

I was thinking it's only necessary for the longer game threads or where specific problems have been identified a few times (for instance with Crusader and UFO) - looking over the thread titles in the Troubleshooting forum would also be useful.

I'd say it's a good idea, even though it probably won't stop people from posting the same questions all over again. Quite a few people are somewhat reluctant to read anything which has 'rules', 'instructions' or 'FAQ' written on it.

Having said that, if you still need people, I'd offer to help either with the FAQ themselves or with the proofreading.

You're right of course, but if it reduces that then it's got to be good. It could also be useful to put some kind of message in the Troubleshooting board and in the template at the top of each discussion (for ones with an FAQ, clearly) that says "If you have trouble with this game, please check the FAQ before posting it here."

We could also get direct link to FAQ in the review of that game....(under discuss this game for example...)

I was thinking of just adding it into that box of extras, too. Great minds.
