How about to separate FAQ/User Manual and Q&A into two separate threads. Make the FAQ then a closed thread. This thread could continue as the Q&A one, and in all of your opening posts in this just refer to the new closed FAQ thread.
You know as well as me that a lots of guys don't search prior to posting for whatever reason... I've my own, very personal assumptions about this but will keep them with me.
- The FAQ is underutilized as it is, and splitting the resource might further dilute its usage. eg People who already don't distinguish between DEV and FAQ/Q&A are unlikely to distinguish between DEV and FAQ and Q&A.
- Considering the nature and flow of MiXplorer development (rapid, frequent and with narrow distinctions between test, beta, and release versions) it can be difficult to distinguish what should be categorized as Q&A or development questions so there are unavoidable Q&A questions in the main thread. Fortunately Hootan Parsa's gracious nature accommodates this. In the FAQ I'm trying to emulate HP's spirit of friendly communication.
- In spite of the fact that many people do just blurt out their questions without searching, those questions often inform future plans for the FAQ.
