FAQ 145: Additions needed?

I think that FAQ 145 should be edited to include information that one would logically look for there.

1. Move the list of Paid-only layouts from FAQ 170 to FAQ 145 or more prominently link to FAQ 171.

2. Add information on customized comment pages. As far as I can tell, this information isn't available anywhere in the FAQs yet.

In the end, this would look something like this (edits and counter-suggestions welcome, of course):
I am using S2. Why are some customization options not available?
Some options under S2 are reserved for Paid, Permanent, and Early Adopter accounts.

Some S2 layouts are not available to Free users. Also, even if a layout is available and it supports a customization option, this option may also be reserved. For a list of which layouts and customization options are available, see this FAQ: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=171.

Customized comment pages are only available to users with Paid or Permanent accounts. All other account types must upgrade to a Paid account in order to use this feature.

Information on how to upgrade to a Paid account to gain access to the reserved features of S2 is available in this FAQ: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=131. For information on the other benefits of a Paid account, see this FAQ: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=131.

The last sentence of the FAQ, "For information on switching between style systems, please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=168", seems unnecessary to me.

Adding S2 "Haven" to FAQs.

It's hard to keep up with these things! :)

>> FAQ 171 (Which options are currently supported by each public S2 layout?)

(I'm not sure how some of these options should be worded/addressed, since they aren't similar to options available in other layouts. Like, what about the "Automatic color palettes"?)

  * Automatic color customization
  * Changing comment text
  * Changing current mood and music text
  * Color customization
  * Font specification
  * Free text (Blurb)
  * Link list
  * Location of title bar customization
  * Mini-Calendar
  * Number of journal entries on Recent and Friends pages
  * Page background image
  * Page background image properties
  * Page Summary
  * User pictures next to each journal entry
  * Width of journal content

>> FAQ 170 (How do I customize my journal using S2?)

(This FAQ only needs the second paragraph changed.)
In step 1, you select which layout you wish to use. If you want to see what the layouts look like before using them on your journal, click the (Previews) link. The "Component", "Haven", "Opal (Libra OSWD)" and "The Boxer" layouts are only available to Paid, Permanent, and Early Adopter accounts. All other layouts can be selected by any user. If you choose a different layout, you will need to click the "Change" button before any layout-specific options appear.
