Don't worry, this is a top priority, as soon as all the FAQs are ported I will make the link VERY obvious on the home page. and why not put it above the reply button.
As a new user to this forum, I can say a faq like this one: http://www.mp3car.com/the-faq-empori...-the-faqs.html should be prominently displayed (and closed).
A good portion of the problems I have experienced is in finding what I have already read, I know I read it somewhere on here but because there are so many aspects to this project its easy to get a little overwhelmed, especially when one knows he has read something about that. Of course it became worse with the update, but thats unavoidable. A wiki will go a long way towards making things easier.
Oh crap I forgot to mention, the poll's don't seem to be working either.
I notice another feature of other forums is they will merge posts if you add another post before someone else has posted, example are these 3 posts of mine, they should be automatically merged, I do know I can use the edit button to merge but not everyone does. Perhaps this is a feature that can be turned on and off, and you guys decided against it....
