I think it would be easier if you simply post your edited versions of the 5 sections. Then if no one else wants to kibbutz, we move from that to figuring out how to get them into an official FAQ format (Ken should know what to do next).

Another point to consider is that this isn't written in stone. I update the REIT FAQ 2-3 times per year. It's better to get a first "official" version, and then errors, omissions, clarifications, and additions can be made in the next version.

Here's one problem: Someone needs to "own" the FAQ. I have taken on this responsibility on the REIT board, but really don't have time to do so on another board. The fact that I can do this on the REIT board indicates that one does NOT need to be an expert in, or even all that knowledgeable about, all the details. Feedback from board participants helps a lot. But someone needs to own the FAQ in order to gather up the changes for the next version.

As far as getting the link to the FAQ posted in the "Announcements" section, that is easy to do. First you add the FAQ post to the board (if it won't all fit in one post, which seems to be the case here, then there should be a "summary" post with links to the others, as Loki already posted a draft of in #14979). Then you simply email TMFTwitty (Richard Dressner, a really nice & helpful guy), with a link to the post, and the request that it become this board's FAQ.
