Keeper of the applet faq?

I really have this strong urge to edit the Ranch's applet faq to start out with a statement saying "don't use applets"
Its a dead technology, been dead for all of this century. I know, many schools use books that date from back when applets were cool. So we have
to have some basics. But it really should say, as a FAQ, that no new non-educational project should use Applets.

That said, who owns the faq? Who can edit it? does anyone have to approve the copy? etc.?

I believe all our FAQs are wikis, so anyone can edit them.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
I agree. Here's the link:
