FAQs or Hints and Tips

Is there a FAQ for this community? I'm talking about how to read, post and generally use the controls and buttons on this web site. For example:

  • What's the difference between 'like' and 'insightful'?
  • If I type an asterisk and a space, it seems to turn into an unordered list. What other characters might have special meanings when typed? Can I get bold or italics? Any chance of being able to type this in (e.g.) Markdown rather than a semi-fancy WYSIWYG editor?
  • What do the controls mean at the bottom of the text area?
  • What about saving and retrieving draft posts?
  • How do Tags work?
  • Where do we find points and levels, and what do they mean?

Sorry if there's a really obvious link I missed which has all this info in it. Otherwise, sounds like a good idea?

    So here's another bit of forum feedback: if your post gets held in the moderation queue, then when it finally gets released maybe a day or so later, it is sorted by the date of original posting and not by the date of moderation, so it's already way down the list of topics and consequently no one looks at it.
