Forum FAQs

I'm going to be honest and say I didn't really look through the forum before posting this, that said, this somewhat illustrates my point. What is the possibility of creating a FAQ or multiple FAQs for each topic?

As far as the consulting forum goes I have seen the following asked a ton:
-Starting salaries: Analyst/Associate (even Partner... not sure why you'd need to know that)
-Top firms
-Perks of each firm
-Target schools
-IS MY MAJOR/GPA/EXTRACURRICULARS/WORKING THE CORNER GOOD ENOUGH FOR M/B/B

The last is in caps because that's something I did, and after reading literally every topic with double digit posts for the last two years I can see why the more active posters are annoyed by these questions. While those all change on a yearly basis, at least slightly, it's a lot easier to update it once a year then call someone an asshole every time they repost a topic.

The issue is that an FAQ list that gives all of those "answers" will not only be ridiculously large, but many people would disagree with the answers...

Here is our current FAQ: //www.wallstreetoasis.com/faq

If there are obvious questions that are coming up frequently that we can add to the FAQ list please let me know and that should help make that list more complete.

Thanks,
Patrick

I feel that there is a consensus on a good bit of information, but pulling that out could be difficult. Thanks for the response.
