Suggestion: Common Misconceptions

Hey Guys,
I’d like the wiki to have something like a common misconceptions/FAQ page.
Please correct me if we already have this, but I do not think so.

Misconception: Lights are Spatials/Nodes

While you can add lights to Nodes this simply means “everything below that node is lit by this light”.
Lights have their own Position which you could change/update if you want moving lights.
There is a Light/Node bridge called LightNode though, which makes a Light follow a Spatial. That’s probably what many people expect when adding a Light to a Node.

We do have a FAQ in the wiki and its been updated with (actually) frequently asked questions for a while. I think this behavior (that the position in the scenegraph is only important for the distribution) is also mentioned there.
