Revised list of Guides

mentuhotep and I discussed at how information on using LiveJournal would be divided between Guides, and how the Guides would be arranged in a manual. Since we agreed to make numerous changes to my original proposal, I'm posting here a revised table of contents, which I think represents the outcome of our discussion. I've made a couple more changes, though, to make it easier to group FAQs under these headings. "User Pictures" is now a separate Chapter, and I've moved the "Security Levels" Guide from "Journal Entries" (which is overcrowded with FAQs) to the Chapter dealing with Friends. This arrangement is not final -- changes can still be made as necessary.

Here's the list of chapters:
Chapter 1: Finding Your Way Around (includes the Topic Directory)
Chapter 2: Your Account
Chapter 3: User Pictures
Chapter 4: Journal Entries
Chapter 5: Comments
Chapter 6: Friends & Security Levels
Chapter 7: Communities
Chapter 8: Customizing Your Journal
Chapter 9: Additional Features (includes To-Do Lists)
Chapter 10: Conflicts with Other Users
Chapter 11: Volunteer Activities
