FAQ127 has undergone a name change, from "There appears to be an abandoned journal. Can I have the username?" to "Can I have the username of an abandoned journal?"

Should we include something about being able to rename to a purged account?

LJ "QuickStart Guide" in the Form of a FAQ?

Regarding this request, and others like it, I wonder if it might be useful to have a sort od "QuickStart Guide" in the form of a FAQ that we could reference in our replies.

I imagine it would cover such things as entries, comments (and notifications), validation, password, friends lists/filters, and... anything else that people think it ought to contain.

It would be helpful to the volunteers and users alike, I think, and it might inspire people to read the entire FAQs, as well.
