I provided the area for such a guide in the FAQ layout. I'd suggest
pulling the last version of the FAQ I did from the archives and
incorporating your guide into that, to help fill out the FAQ.

I was picturing a guide specifically for mid-level to advanced 2600 programmers to look up tricks and strategies. Most of the information in the current FAQ is information about getting started in 2600 programming and prepares you for the Stella Programmer's Guide. The guide I'm working on is more of a reference and advanced supplement to the Stella Programmer's Guide. IMHO merging it with the FAQ would add a lot of information that you don't want to have to wade through when you're trying to find a specific programming trick or brushing up on programming skills. The FAQ is pretty big and my guide will be roughly 1500-2000 lines. But my guide is only being compiled by me and was really written by the 2600 programming community so I'd like to hear other people's opinions on this.
