This is a good time to point out that there appears to be a change to how this thread is going to function. It looks like there is going to be some updates to the FAQ pages to include some of the information found in this thread.
This being the case I think we should compile a list of information which we feel needs to be added to the FAQs.
So far Ragnorak has provided a good "Upload Avatar
" instruction (see Thread 52809
) and we have found a couple of others in this thread already:
Formating and link codes
(updated by Nordlys - twice
Using The Vacation Flag
I am not sure how Russ would be about linking to stuff outside the site from the FAQ (i.e the greasemonkey and redhotfaces) but these could also be put forward as a "Recommended Sites" idea and see what Russ thinks.
If anyone has any other suggestions then please post them in here. They could be full descriptions and/or instructions, simple ideas of what you feel would be worth adding or even edits to the current FAQ content. Two I have found are:
~ The "Moves of the Pieces" page has a link to the en passant rule for pawns but does not have not one to the castling rule for the king.
~ The "How do I castle?" FAQ can be removed now that there is a full section devoted to it.
P.S. The more we add to this the more often we can give blitzer's response and remind people that the FAQs should be read, but try to remember that the FAQ page does say "The help forum is often a good place to get assistance if you are confused by the rules"
, so try not to use "Read The FAQs" as a blanket response to everything.
