Branched to a new discussion

As briefly mentioned before the new year, we have been working on a new approach to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) in the forums. Glenn Schroeder did an awesome job creating and maintaining two discussion threads with many FAQs in those threads. However, the threads were not easily searchable or navigated, they were "hidden" among all other posts, and they were hard to reference.


I'm happy to announce that with Glenn's help, we now have a new FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) space in the forum. It can be accessed via most common space navigation methods in the forum including being listed as the second space in the list on the left of the forum home page: https://forum.solidworks.com/


Due to this change, Glenn and I have worked to update his two original FAQ discussion posts to direct forum users to the new space. We have also locked the two original discussions to make sure all future FAQ activity happens in the new space to optimize the content there.
