    How about an equipment FAQ? This would be a place for people new to APUG or changing to a different format could look up past posting for:

    Which camera should I buy for 35mm?
    Which camera should I buy for MF?
    Which camera should I buy for LF?
    Has anyone ever ordered from KEH?
    Has anyone ever ordered from B&H?
    Has anyone ever ordered from Ebay?

    Those are exactly the questions for which more than half the discussions on APUG are already the FAQ.

    And every single discussion rambles on for ten pages without ever coming to agreement. Making a formal FAQ would ruin all the fun. :D

    What we're trying to do it to make good threads on frequently asked questions sticky, so the top of each forum will be kind of like an FAQ list, but the questions have to be somewhat better formed and of more universal interest than "what camera should I buy?"
