Discussing changes to LiveJournal's FAQ system
This community is the home of LiveJournal's User Documentation team, who maintain the site's Frequently Asked Questions. All LiveJournal users are welcome to join this community; you can watch for changes and actively improve the FAQs by explaining undocumented features, explaining something more clearly, or updating the documentation for site changes. If you don't know where to start, try critiquing one of the Popular FAQs or looking for a keyword.

While you're getting started, we prefer you to post about your idea before you spend a lot of time working on it. That way, we can point you to an existing FAQ you might have missed, or tell you about any planned changes that would affect your idea.

When you post about FAQ changes, we'd like you to do a few things:
  • Link to any relevant FAQs. (You can even use the special LiveJournal FAQ URLs: <a href="lj://faq/faqid">FAQ Name</a>).

  • Tag your proposal. Add "status-pending" and any relevant FAQ category in the "cat-category" format. (For the tag versions of longer category names, find the category name on the community's tag list or by mousing over the "FAQ category" link at the bottom of an individual FAQ.)

  • Draft your proposed changes, if you've participated for a while and know the FAQs pretty well.

This community is only for changes to the FAQ.
