Here is my bright idea for the month...
Is there a way to search the database to see what the most frequently asked questions are? I dont mean the 'why wont my code compile?' kind but those that refer to specific mock questions and/or recurring themes (like equals vs ==). If there is a way then answers could be create to them and have them posted in the FAQ. The ansers could be made by looking at all of the responses from the previos questions or by just having a special thread that could be used temporarily to gather the info, then someone would have to sort it and make presentable and understandable. (the last part would have to be done no matter which way the info was gathered).
I think it would help to have a lot of them (10 to 20 of them??) centally located and easy to find for people looking for answers.
I realize it would have to be a volunteer thing but I'm sure, if the questions can be found, there are plenty of people to answer them and make them presentable.
I guess the hardest part would be to decide which questions to ask/answer. I dont know what kind of searching or indexing can be done on the database to try to find them.
