Is there a paticular FAQ that will tell me all the random things about the site, like the difference between neurotics, lunatics, mad scientist etc?
Also, why, on the front page, are some of the bullet points big, and some of them small?
Just wondering!

well i also could answer you these questions
there is a difference between the "names"/"ranks" however...neurotic / maniacs / lunatics are all ranks which are depending of the number of posts you have got.
mad scientists and psychotics are forum moderators....chosen by doc ozone

the big and small bullet points
a big one means that there are new posts.......small one that there are no new posts
any more questions?

weclome, wrayal,
that asylum general faq should really get you started,
but we also have a 'I'm new here, what do I need to know' kind of faq.
check it out.

LOL! I had no idea the pink pill made it into the FAQWiki.
Colour me tickled.

Maybe someday I'll tell the story of the pink pill.
Or maybe not.
Probably not.

The story of the pink pill might be in the archives somewhere.
If you manage to track it down, don't be surprised if it's boring.

"Colour me tickled" is a play on "colour me pink".
Feel free to substitute other emotions or states of mind.
For example, colour me horny or colour me drunk.
