Dunno if its been said cos ive not got time to read through the thread. How about typing out an FAQ and next it put links to all previous discussions on that question. Its long and tedious task but in the end it helps.
In a way, I think this might represent a fundamental alteration of the manner in which the BBS functions. It could create neverending threads on the same old topics instead of new, shorter ones every now and then. I might prefer the latter; the rate at which new posters join up isn't all that great, so it might be easier to just point them at a recent thread when they bring something up.
However, if you volunteered to prepare this yourself, I'd sure be impressed
