Request for Frequently Asked Question Sticky Sorting

In summary, the conversation discussed the possibility of creating a frequently asked question sticky about recurring numbers and infinity as a number. The idea was well received, but there were concerns about how to organize and ensure the thoroughness of the FAQ. Suggestions were made to consult the FAQs in the physics forum and to compile a list of questions to be addressed. Previous discussions on the topic were also mentioned as helpful resources.

i once posted askign if a frequently asked question sticky could be sorted. i think i'd like to restate that request following bs's two threads

a quick search of "recurring" finds around 7 threads obviously starting with the question 'is 0.9 recurring one?'

the second yet again involved infinity thinking it was a real number.

I think it's a great idea. But there is a lot of material that could be posted on both topics, anybody have any good ideas on how we go about constructing such an FAQ and how we make sure it is clear and thorough?

They've been working on FAQs in physics https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=71931&page=1&pp=20
You could probably get some ideas from them. There are also links to their individual threads.
I'd love to help, I just don't think I could contribute much. Maybe we should get a list of questions started. It seems

1. .9 recurring = 1
2. Infinity as a number

are already on the list.
