Volunteer FAQ Editor Needed

We are looking for someone to help create an FAQ for this forum. While compiling information should be a group effort, one person would be charged with pulling it together into useful FAQs. This could mean a new document OR just pointing to helpful posts that are already on the forum. A good example of a helpful FAQ can be found here: Winter Sowing FAQ.
If you have a desire to make this forum even better, have good writing skills and work well with others, please reply to this thread or send us an email -- Letters to Garden Web.

I nominate Bboy. He's a wiz.

Why would this forum - or any other regional forum for that matter - even need a FAQ? Other than restating the obvious as to climate, etc. (as outlined in the forum intro), the topics raised by regional forums are so diverse as to make a FAQ pointless. What would be included?? First/last frost date? That varies widely by area and microclimate, as does nearly every other broadly addressed topic. If it was a plant-specific forum, it might be different.

Just seems very unnecessary to me.

I agree, unnecessary. I also nominate bboy (wink)!
