At the poking of rho, I propose consolidating all five of the To-Do list FAQs into one FAQ (they're each, like, two sentences long) and putting that new FAQ in the "Site Navigation" category. Then, hide the remaining FAQs and delete the todo faqcat. Proposed text:

What is a to-do list? How do I use it?

LiveJournal offers a feature called a to-do list, which allows you to quickly and easily file certain projects and goals that you want to accomplish.

To find your to-do list, simply log in (http://www.livejournal.com/login.bml) and go to the To-Do List page (http://www.livejournal.com/todo/). To see another user's to-do list, go to http://www.livejournal.com/todo/?mode=pickuser and enter his/her username. You can also go to http://www.livejournal.com/todo/?user=exampleusername to go directly to another user's to-do list. Replace exampleusername with the username whose to-do list you want to see.


First you'll need to login (http://www.livejournal.com/login.bml) and then go to your To-Do List page (http://www.livejournal.com/todo/).

On the todo list page itself, there will be a section called "Actions", with a link labeled "Add Item". Following this link will bring you to the "Add To-Do Item" page, where you can enter in pertinent information regarding your to-do list item. When you are done, click the "Add" button at the bottom of the page and this item will be added to your to-do list.

The "Subject" field is the only required field on the page. Here you can enter the title of your item.

The setting of the "Priority" field specifies the relative urgency of your item.

You can enter a description of your item in the "Details" field.

You can describe the status of your goal in the "Status" field. Some examples include "starting stages", "drawing board", or "almost done". In addition, you can use the "Percent Done" field to reflect the percentage amount accomplished towards your goal.

The "Due Date" field allows you to give your goal a certain deadline. The date fields are set up in the order of Month-Day-Year (4 digit year) Hour:Minute, or mm-dd-yyyy hh:mm.

The "Categories" field allows you to file each item with certain keywords. Each item can have up to ten keywords. These kewords will then allow you to filter your to-do list. Some examples include "personal", "work", or "school".

The "Security" field allows you to choose who can see this to-do list item. Public allows anyone to see it, Friends allows only the people who are listed on your Friends list to see it, and Private allows only you to see it.

Users with Paid or Permanent Accounts can have an unlimited number of to-do list items, while users with Free Accounts can have up to 25 to-do list items. For more information about the different account types, see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=38.


You can edit a to-do list item by going to your To-Do List page (http://www.livejournal.com/todo/) and clicking on item's subject line.

Doing this will take you to a page similar to the add item page, and will allow you to edit your to-do list item. See the previous section for information on the function of each field.
