How to ask good questions added to FAQ


Recently I have been noticing that certain threads started by people are annoying me. I then noticed on certain member's sigs the following link http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

It pointed out everything that posts do to annoy me and how they can be fixed. It may just be me being picky but I'm sure its one of the reasons that certain flame wars occur. As always, I think that almost *all* the people here try their best to support each other but occaisionally tempers snap (im certain I've done it myself).

Therefore maybe it would be a good idea to have the FAQ in a prominent place with this link in an obvious position within it. Maybe set things up so that it will be suggested to new members when they create their account to look at this guide first.

Just a suggestion.

Alex
