LJ USERDOC SMACKDOWN!!!!!!!!11!!!!111lolol!

Okay, gang, here's the deal. As expected, the userdoc crew have been dealing with lots of other things (like school, RSI, other LiveJournal responsabilities, etc) and so I apologize for the length of time it took for some of these things to be dealt with. I finally kicked into gear and smacked through all of lj_userdoc up till now. The things that've changed since the last Smackdown Report are listed behind the cut. Beware, the list is huge.

Lots of FAQs have been added in this round, and several FAQs were re-titled. I'd encourage everyone to run through this list just to make sure you're abreast (hee hee, I said breast) of the newest changes in userdoc land.

I have dealt with pretty much everything before this post. If I missed something or if I commented at you for more information, please make a new post. Anything before this is likely to get lost, so it's easier on us all to make a new post. Thanks a bunch.

And now, behold the end-result of two hours of userdoc smacking. :)

[link] FAQ114 updated to say "more than 3 userpics (or 6 if you're an EA)" instead of "if you've uploaded 10 userpics" -- with userpic packages and whatnot, there are more cases to deal with, so it's better to deal with "more than X" rather than "less than Y"

[link] FAQ46 minor housekeeping to this FAQ.
