After repeatedly answering the same questions here I started writing that guide about 5 months ago... With the intention that it could be put here somwhere permanently.
And I have talked to Simon a little about it.. and he was thinking the same thing.
He is apparently going to re-design this site sometime fairly soon I guess... So what he, and you, and SteelToad (he was also going to convert that to HTML... and put it on his own ped site) and I... want... would be determined then.
My only preferences are that the text not be changed...I chose my words pretty carefully.. and I would rather they remain the same... Unless somebody can convince me I was wrong somewhere
The other thing is I would like to see my name and that date at the top or bottom.
If somebody wants to add something before or after... that is fine... but I would prefer that what is added is kept separate in a noticeable way.
My first choice... if I was to choose... is that it would be included in this forum as a permanent 1st post (or last post on the first page?)... that looked like an ordinary post to be clicked upon... and all new posts would appear under it.... because the same questions get asked over and over again, and the info needs to be right there.
I go to another forum that has a "permanent post" that stays on the front page.
I think it works good.
