I have some fairly detailed notes on forcing that I'd like to upload and edit for the site. They are essentially a transcription of Prof. Richard Laver's lectures on forcing and include side remarks and insights made by him. Is this considered an inappropriate venue for his notes?

Let's hold off on that, since my view is that general set-theoretic background is borderline off-topic for this site. We have wanted to the focus, especially at the initial stage, to be on the cardinal notions, such as the large cardinal hierarchy and cardinal characteristics of the continuum, and so it would seem best if most of the effort be made in that arena.
