The FAQ board

So I was wondering... what's the actual purpose of the Dominion FAQ subforum? Looking through the existing threads, it seems like most of them would properly belong in the Rules Questions subforum. A few other threads, like the currently active "Maximum Possible VP?", are actually asking questions that get frequently asked... but even so the thread really would make perfect sense in Dominion General Discussion. Or also possibly in Puzzles and Challenges.

When I think of a FAQ, I think of a fixed list of Questions and Answers, designed to give new users a place to look before posting a thread asking a question that they have. For it to work that way, it would have to be a board that only a few people like moderators can post in / edit.

Anyway, just some thoughts, because the way it is currently set up makes it a bit confusing to know what sort of content to expect when going to that subforum.

It functioned sort of like a proto-wiki until we got a real wiki. It mostly doesn't serve much function anymore. I agree that it could be converted to a more streamlined actual FAQ.

Bumping this... I know Theory is super busy and not all that involved these days... but any chance we can actually get rid of the FAQ board? Most of the threads in there should be moved to the rules board; some others should be just in Dominion General Discussion. I think it's confusing for new players; not sure what things to post there.
