Well the FAQ is available in two places.
the little bar at the top, maybe removing the 'Adv' before FAQ would make it more obvious, and in the main forum bar under resources.
Also making the little bar one a different colour like the rules, although judging by a lot of the posts no one reads those either.
As for dead links, if someone comes across a dead link then post in that thread that the links are dead, that will do two things, 1. bring that post to the top and give it more attention. 2. have an email go out to the OP and others that have posted in that thread, then they might be able to either edit the link out or more hopefully update the link.
It's up to passersby not to ignore the ailing
