Newb Questions Thread Discussion

Ok, all the "Newb Questions" are getting to me. I saw this on another forum but I think it will work here too. We should have a thread where new people can ask questions and older people come in and answer them. It should have a link to our FAQ's, the official FAQ's and The Books. This way we don't have fifty threads asking if a figure can move backwards.

6 x 9 = 42

These threads never work. We've tried it in the past. We will still have people that are too lazy to read this thread and would still rather start a new one. There are always going to be duplicate questions asked and there is nothing we can do about it.

The thing about the lazies is it's easier to make a post than a whole thread devoted to a one word answer and a dancing lock because you've annoyed the god of posting.

Yes it is easier to make one post in a thread for repetitive, redundant questions. My point was that people will still make new threads even though this thread exists, because they don't read other threads before asking or posting questions. If someone has a question about double spaced figures moving backwards, it doesn't matter if they see a thread title "Newbs post your questions here" or "Can double spaced figures moved backwards" on the first page of this section, they will start a new thread.

Threads like this don't work.

I voted yes since it sounds good in theory, but there are so many noobs out there that they tend to ignore the wishes of newbs.

Yea, that was the hole in my idea. It requires the newbs to read stuff before they post and if they did that, then there wouldn't be a problem to fix at all.
