@Souptacular I've been noticing lots of really basic-level questions on Reddit recently... it might be useful to compile the frequently-asked ones into a FAQ of sorts as part of this guide. I consider it really good news that more new people are joining the community, but answering really basic questions like "can Ethereum send arbitrary data" is annoying 2 years on :worried:

So I sketched out my preferred structure in the google doc
i agree faq would be great but lot of work

my apologies for not checking if this is in the Google doc first, but maybe it would be good to have a "how ethereum is different from bitcoin" section
since it seems like many of the basic questions are from this viewpoint

lol. @tgerring , I agree completely and that should be part of it. I know @chriseth compiled a list of some FAQ for solidity (with the help of fivedogit's older FAQ) and there is some overlap so I will explore that.
@zelig Thanks! Great stuff! I will combine your proposal with my proposal tonight and ping you so we can finalize (or at least finalize enough to publish to the Github and start asking for help from the community). Obviously as we write the documentation we will re-visit the organization as need be.

@Souptacular I only included the solidity-related questions into that faq

Oh I'm mistaken then. I thought all of fivedogit's stuff made it in. Thanks, I'll check it out
