quoting myself from another thread (just plain easier than retyping).
I think it's time to ask the mods to add a new forum for Beginners
Why, should we add a new forum? Here's a quote from ssh last year when several new ones were added:
Additionally, altho' I can't find the exact post, my recollection is that when all the snowboard forums were added, someone asked a mod (don't remember which one) why were all the forums added when there was very little in them. The answer was to the effect that "Build it, and they will come." That seems like it would be a good reason to add a beginners' forum.
