Forgive my ignorance when it comes to administering a site such as this one, but would the concept of "If you build it, they will come" be a possibility here? Perhaps as such questions get asked, and as google farms the data and people who aren't members yet start finding answers to their RegEx questions, seeing that we now cater to their crazy world ... maybe it would grow and become a nice little archive for future geek / lunatics such as ourselves to use as a resource.
But I admit ignorance when it comes to understanding the nature of electronic forum 'supply and demand'... In a retail environment, it would probably make sense to start carrying 3d printers when we don't currently carry them even though we only get asked a few times a month because in the long run, becoming the one stop shop for customers is the goal... but I'm thinking that such logic would not apply here for reasons which I have yet to understand???
Thank you for taking the time to reply, by the way. What I love most about this site, is that I seem to always get an intelligent and polite response to my posts, and that has immense value to those of us actually trying to learn and move forward in our understanding of these often complex problems.

Is there a FAQ to help me understand the site better? More specifically, I'd like to understand how Ranking works, What exactly a cow is, how they are given and why they are important, Basically everything I'm curious about, I am looking at on my public profile page ... whatever those numbers mean next to Total given, Given in last 30 days, Total received etc. I THINK they have something to do with Likes?
Anyways, a general FAQ explaining the in's and out's of this community would be awesome. I searched for one without success.
