    FAQ - it is not a true list of FAQ

    Although I've only been here a short time, I notice that there are numerous questions that pop up- arrays, user input, file i/o. The FAQ contains no answers to any of these questions that I can see. Who ever is in charge of editing the FAQ list obviously doesn't know what kind of questions people are actually frequently asking!

    In my opinion, it's all too obvious that a lot of people don't do any research before posting their questions anyway. If a question has been asked so much it should be in the FAQ, then why are people still asking it, when the answer is found by doing a board search.

    The board itself becomes the FAQ.

    And as for your comment

    I think that was a bit of an own goal. The person in charge of adding new items to the list is you. And all the other users of these boards. "What does he mean?", I hear you say! Well, if you read the second thread on the FAQ board, you'd have seen this:

    If you know of a thread on another board that you think is a good answer to a common question, either vote for that thread to have a high rating or PM a moderator and suggest it.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
