If you feel like you can't contribute yourself, but have a good question, post it here so that I or some other member on these forums can write it if they feel like they can do it well. If you have any input on the questions already answered in it, post that input here.
This thread might be a good place to develop things to be added to that thread.
>>>-------------- This is something that could potentially go into the FAQ but I suspect it could also do with some additional development.

Here's my attempt at answering those two suggested FAQs...
Q: How do I get multiple scripts to work on a single page? A: The short (not recommend) answer is to rename all of the variable and function names in the second instance of the script thus preventing them from conflicting.
The longer (recommend) answer would be to rewrite the script in an object-oriented fashion. The reason you'd do it like this is because this is inherently how object-oriented code is intended to work: with multiple instances. This is true because when you call the constructor for that object, all variables become internal properties of it therefore completely removing the chance of anything conflicting between the two scripts. Also note by making it an object you can have as many instances of it on a page as you'd like — it's not only limited to two.
For more information on this, check the following threads:
Any suggestions on how to make them more accurate or otherwise better would be much appreciated.
Though, wouldn't it be great if you could use definition lists on the forums? That would be the best way to lay out this kind of information. Maybe we could get George to modify the vB code or something...
