Helpline/Newbie Board
« Topic Start: September 06, 2013, 10:41:06 AM »
Why have a Newbie Board AND a Helpline? From what I have seen most questions in the Newbie subboard would be right at home in Helpline. Many questions in Helpline are from newbies or or newbieish questions. Seems to me that Helpline is enough. The title is inviting and clear and does not have any of the negativeness that the title newbie sometimes imparts. Besides, shouldn't people be nice to each other everywhere regardless of what board a post is on? Heck it is also nearly impossible to determine if a question is "stupid" in the first place.

The general idea was to have a special place for newcomers, but I think you have a point.
