comment Do White Bolts NOT Count as Being Detected?
The first-level white bolts don't count for sure (I got the achievement recently and allowed a handful of characters to get them). The second-level white bolts might, as they seem to be accompanied by a sound. I always reloaded when I got them so I can't confirm beyond that.

comment Is the Door To Nowhere important, or is it an easter egg?
Pretty sure it's just an easter egg, but I could see it used as the access point for some future DLC (fingers crossed) as well.

comment Is any elevated surface a valid place to store unconscious victims in order not to get eaten by rats?
There are ini settings to control corpse vanish behavior to some extent.

comment Can I bind a key to enable a certain power?
This post says you can, but doesn't say how -- maybe pressing the number key while the desired power is selected, before closing the radial menu (that's similar to how it works on the 360).

comment What's the effect of blowing candles?
There is load screen help text that says that shadows do conceal you, but only at a distance. Anecdotal evidence during my various playthroughs appears to confirm this.

comment How does the gold/gem exchange rate get determined?
You're correct that the system doesn't operate on an "offer" system (which would be closer to how the trading post works, for example). But we don't directly manipulate the stocks or the rates (my source for this being that I work at ArenaNet).

comment How does the gold/gem exchange rate get determined?
@SaintWacko The exchange is global, so the initial seed stock and rate were set once, not per-server.

comment Are there any benefits to blowing everything up?
I've discovered that while destroying the environment imparts no spirit gain as a monk, it will reset the countdown on Sweeping Wind and possibly other similar skills that refresh on strike.

comment Can you “win” Dwarf Fortress?
"Unofficial" ways usually just include any goals the player sets for him or herself -- building some crazy structure, a fortress under the ocean, breaching the HFS and conquering the resulting... fun. Et cetera.
