List of LJ Guides, 1st try

Here's my first attempt to draw up a list of LJ Guides, arranged as a table of contents for the manual that will be created from them.

Chapter 1: Finding your way around
  • Viewing journal entries [including the Calendar]
  • Profiles (User/Community Info)
  • Topic Directory
  • Searching for journals
  • Interests
  • Where to learn more [Newbies lounge, News, Support center, site policies, etc.]
Chapter 2: Starting a journal
  • Free Accounts
  • Paid Accounts
  • Privacy issues
  • User pictures
  • Creating an account
  • Logging in to your account
Chapter 3: Posting to your journal
  • The Update Journal page
  • Fonts and colors in journal entries
  • Text layout in journal entries
  • Links in journal entries
  • Pictures in journal entries
  • Polls in journal entries
  • The <lj-cut> tag
  • Editing or deleting an entry
Chapter 4: Customizing your journal
  • Where to make changes
  • Journal colors
  • Mood icons
  • Page layout styles
Chapter 5: Comments
  • Posting a comment
  • Deleting a comment
  • Controlling who can comment
  • Comment notification e-mails
  • Handling personal conflicts
  • IP logging
Chapter 6: Friends
  • What are Friends?
  • Editing your Friends list
  • Friend groups
Chapter 7: Communities
  • Joining a community
  • Posting to a community journal
  • Creating a community
  • Maintaining a community
Chapter 8: Additional features
  • Memorable Posts
  • Your To-Do List
  • Exporting your journal
  • Text messaging
Chapter 9: Volunteer activities
  • Official forums
  • Support policy

One thing I couldn't find a place for is "Deleting your journal". Where does that belong?

Guides to client software and programming interfaces (including the style system) have been omitted deliberately. I expect those to appear in different parts of the manual.
