I'm saddened, but unsurprised, that this question has been dismissed rather curtly. It makes some valid points behind a rather bad presentation.
First, if you do nothing else, please prominently post link to the Community FAQ somewhere (anywhere) in the Official FAQ.
Let's say you're looking for something in the official FAQ linked at the top of every page. So you scroll down to the bottom, and get to a section titled “What if I need more help?”. That seems like a logical place to link to the community FAQ… which it does.
Secondly, the Official FAQ should be searchable, even if only by the brower.
It is searchable. However, there's a trick: you need to click on the little “show more” link at the bottom of a section, then on “expand all”, otherwise your browser only shows you the beginning of each section.
The first thing I got here was a downvote as a 1 Reputation user because I didn't think to look for information on making comments and votes under the collapsed category What is Reputation?
The basic usage of comments (asking for clarifications) is illustrated in the section on asking questions. What this section doesn't show is how to reply to them (it only mentions editing your question in response to comments), but seeing the “add comment” link on your question and its answers should be enough to suggest the possibility. Voting is also mentioned in that same section.
(I didn't come here to be popular, but to ask and answer questions, so the subject of reputation actively disinterested me). If I'd had the capacity to actually search the entire Official FAQ, I would have seen that I needed 15 points to vote up and 50 to leave a comment. (When you're at 1 reputation both those seem FAR away and a -2 reputation seems impossibly large.)
You seem to worry a lot about reputation for someone who was “actively disinterested” in it.
It should not be necessary to read an entire FAQ before you interact with a site. A FAQ should be browsable for easy answers to specific questions. Anything else is not a FAQ, but a manifesto.
You don't need to read the entire FAQ. Skimming through the first three sections (What can I ask here What kind of questions should I not ask here? How do I ask?) is enough to get you going. After interacting with the site a bit, you might come back for things like What if I don't get an answer? Why are some questions closed? People can edit my posts!? …
The lack of FAQ searchability, and the fragmentation of FAQ information between the Official FAQ, Meta.Stackoverflow and the Community FAQ (let me know if I've missed any) is VERY n00b hostile, especially with the Shoot-From-The-Hip attitude of some of the more experienced users around here.
All the information in the official FAQ should be in the community FAQ (the faq tag on Meta Stack Overflow) as well. Searchability, on the other hand, is a problem. It took me about a year to be able to find things on Meta Stack Overflow. It has its own culture, its own vocabulary sometimes, and a fraction of the community is very quick to rebuke people who rehash what to the regulars are old ideas.
It doesn't help that many of the “n00bs” are out to get the regulars. It goes both ways: being polite and not barging in thinking you have all the answers will get you a better reception.
Taking your post in particular, it would help if you wrote more calmly. The formatting of your post alone puts the reader in a non-receptive mood, with the random code markup thrown in. Your choice of words is also problematic. Your post starts well (the first paragraph is fine — except that what you request is already the case), but then it heats up. Avoid wordings like “not a FAQ, but a manifesto” — manifesto is a charged words (and I don't see how it applies here: the official FAQ is not so much an FAQ as a user's manual, but “manifesto”?). Your last paragraph is worded so as to antagonize the very people that you should be reaching out to. Here's how you might say the same things in a more constructive way:
The difficulty to search the FAQ, and the fragmentation of FAQ information between the Official FAQ and the Community FAQ makes it difficult for a new user to figure out everything they should know. It would be easier to fit in if there was an easier way to learn the ropes. Please, consider that the n00bs aren't so much clueless as uninformed; give us a chance.
