Past The Mask

Possible FAQ Modification & Addition

[Site Navigation Features] FAQ 60: How are interests limited?

As the title implies, the above FAQ only states how individual interests are limited in terms of data. Although it doesn't come up terribly often, it may be useful to point out other important notes about interests lists themselves. For example, it could address issues such as the following:
  • What does it mean when interests are linked/unlinked?
  • What does it mean if an interest is linked but only one user currently lists it on their userinfo?
  • How can interests be used to find friends?
That last point brings up another issue, which concerns the possibility of adding a FAQ regarding how one can find friends and/or promote their journal. Requests of this sort usually entail mentioning communities, friending, and adding interests to the userinfo. This comes up every now and then like the interests issue, so it's not exactly a pressing matter, but it might be simpler and more efficient to have a FAQ reference for these types of things.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, so I apologize in advance if it has. Thoughts?
