Well, if you did that, and made the "for beginners" forum not be included in the "new posts/todays posts" search, that would be a big help. Which is why we would still let newbs post, as long as they post things related to professional indie development. So it would be perfectly ok for newbs to ask questions about how this business works, but not to post "feedback request for my first asteroids clone". Since the early Dexterity days. And signal to noise was way higher then, as most of us newbs was content reading, and didn't feel the need to post "me too" on every thread... It's not a problem if the same issuses gets discussed over again. Sometimes things changed, so discussions need to take place again.
