I've been thinking about the sites I use, particularly Cooking, and I find that they have some great basic FAQ questions on the main site that help users answer more specific questions without asking them individually.
An example for knitting/crochet would be something like:
What is the equivalent in mm to a US size G hook.
Instead of having dozens of different questions for each hook size, we could create a single FAQ that has the equivalencies for all hook sizes in mm, US size and UK sizes (and if there are others, them, too).
Then, individual questions can be closed as a dupe of this question to help keep the info in one place and a bit neater.
Would we consider these questions "too basic" or should they be included in the site's first questions?
