General Forum FAQ

I had a bit of free time on my hand so I figured it might be nice to have an FAQ list for forum newcomers to refer to. Hopefully this will also make life easier for the mods!

The choice of topics is mostly based on the activity levels of various posts in the general forum (for now...there's still the diagrams forum to go through), and to a lesser extent, the o-list.

Feedback, comments and corrections welcome!
