We're getting a lot of Questions Asked quite Frequently now. Is it time we
built a FAQ here? Who among you would help build it?

I've got a load of server space and a bit of time. I can help compile
and present it. (Heh, we should store it in mysql and use php to
generate the FAQ posts. :)

I like the database driven idea. I can offer to help if you need some. My
time's pretty full this week and next week but I should have some spare
time after that. If you want to email me about it change blackhole in my
email address to chris.

If it helps, I have registered a domain for this: clpfaq.org, but
haven't got around to set something up. We can have a race, who is
first finished with the setup and I point the domain to it.

This shows the server connecting to ours claimed to be one thing but
had a reverse entry saying it was something else.

You can send it to the same id at panix dot com since they're not as
picky.

Thanks for the positive response, we might get something done soon.

The well-intentioned hosting and software for creating the web FAQ aside,
this won't go anywhere until we have the Questions themselves and an
automated posting to this group. God knows there's enough of us who like the
tech side enough to do it, but seemingly few who can do the drudge work of
building the data.

So what I'd like to do (with everyone's blessing, even the "is there a
need?" guys) is make an official-looking (ha!) "Official comp.lang.php FAQ
v0.001" thread post and have contributions to it that consist entirely of
actual questions and the answers thereto, and I'll just re-post it and
update versioning etc etc. An entirely Usenet-driven solution to a simple
Usenet problem.

I don't wanna be "FAQ guy", but I'm prepared to put the effort in to start
it.

I believe the operative term is "_will_ do the drudge work."
Thanks for offering.

Sounds good to me. FAQs are really handy and beat saving 600 usenet
messages with each topic under 27 different subject headings in the
news reader. Maybe someone has started something in a FAQ format for
themself and could give you a jumpstart on it.
