Just one!

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=249 -- for clearing one's cache/cookies. I linked to WikiHow so that we don't need to maintain the information.

Um, should we not mention that cookies can (and IIRC actually kinda ARE with us) used to store things aside from the current login session.
Like, say, sitescheme prefs? (I think, I might be wrong on that.)

I would like to have a FAQ (for devs as well as users) regarding:

a) what gets stored in a cookie
b) and for whom, because anonymous visitor cookie and user cookie are different, I believe.

Oh! I did not mean what (in general) gets stored in a cookie (from any given website), but instead what specifically Dreamwidth stores in our cookies, and split this up by whom, because I know it's different.

Either in here or on the wiki.

yeah, i agree. (which is also why we do, and should continue to, punt "how to clear your cache and cookies" to another site's instructions).
