-
-## FAQ
-
-Here are the answers to some common questions.
-
-### I'm using Rails 4...
-
-Then you **must** use FriendlyId 5, which is currently available in the master
-branch of the repository, and will be released to Rubygems soon.
-
-### I'm seeing a bunch of odd characters at the end of the id
-
-For example: `2bc08962-b3dd-4f29-b2e6-244710c86106`. FriendlyId 5 uses a UUID
-rather than a sequence to simplify slug generation and avoid concurrency problems.
-
-### How do I set up my routes for FriendlyId?
-
-Exactly like in any other Rails app. FriendlyId doesn't change any routing
-functionality, it only changes the ids that are shown in your routes.
-
-TIP: Make your app work the way you want to with numeric id's. Then add
-FriendlyId later.
-
-### I'm seeing `undefined method `friendly_id'`
-
-You probably just added the friendly_id gem. Run `bundle` and restart your
-Rails app.
-
-### I'm seeing `uninitialized constant FriendlyId`
-
-You probably just added the friendly_id gem. Run `bundle` and restart your
-Rails app.
+Please only post issues in Github issues for actual bugs.
+I am asking people to do this because the same questions keep getting asked
+over and over and over again in the issues.
