    Make the FAQ a little more obvious?

    I was just thinking about this. It isn't very obvious that we have a FAQ here to most people. Of course, we do, WebDevFAQs.com. By making it a little more obvious, such as making a link to it on the main page or making a sticky about it or something should cut down on the number of duplicate threads asking the same questions over and over. For example, can you even count how many threads there are on "how can I make a secure JavaScript password protected page?", or what about the other infamous "how can I read query string values with JavaScript?" , and quite possibly the most requested "how can I get form information e-mailed to me?" — the list goes on.

    I "third" that. I love the current sticky in the javascript forum
    Absence of a result is a result, unless defined otherwise.

    I agree, there should be like a global sticky to webdevfaqs.com at the top of every board.

    However, I would like it explaining in layman terms how webdevfaqs.com is officially affiliated with internet.com and Jupitermedia Corporation.

    I've actually thought of that too, I guess that's probably the reason it isn't...

    Correct. It isn't...

    It just happens to be run by the moderators from the forum... And owned by Pyro... And hosted by Pyro...

    In other words it is as I expected the Frobozz Electric Corp. has greater representative links and that is why there is no sticky.

    Sticky

    I think the posting guidelines should be a sticky also, their location is not very obvious.
