FINALLY! Well, anyway, here it is divided into categories. I've disabled BBCode so you can just copy and paste. I've previewed it with BBCode on, and it works.

Meph: I've removed the BBCode for readability.

Ok, now it looks a lot better :D Thanks for editing it Meph ;)
I think this topic will help a lot of users, and make things faster even for mods and admins, instead of searching every single page in this section.

One thing I just noticed: "How do I use the "reveal a conversation" action?" is there twice. Also, a few of the questions could do with some grammar edits, because it's frankly impossible to tell what a couple of the questions are trying to ask. I would, but I don't have the time right now. But this is a great feature.

I've changed it to "How do I continue after pressing all statements in a CE?" ;)

Also, don't add any questions to the list if they start with "Help!" :)

I don't see how the link you provided helps people. Everything henke37 said is always vague, you should provide more information :evil: I think the guy hates everyone here
