I've been toying with the idea of putting up some links to discussions of previous topics here on the board, so that newbies can have certain basic information handy when they check in (Like Reedo's "How to Buy a DB" thread, etc). What we really need are some FAQ's, but I doubt anyone really has time to be dealing with that anytime soon. However, with my amazing moderatorial superpowers, I could put up a locked thread that stays at the top of one or more forums that contains links to various topics that have been well covered in the past, so that any potential newbies would have an easier time doing some research on what they're after before they ask some of the more common questions that get asked. The idea is not to prevent new folks from posting, but to help them avoid posting something that has been covered many times before until they have seen the existing information. What do you guys think? If the idea flies, I could use some help collecting links: anybody who were to find a useful thread could email the forum link and topic to either myself or Don, and we could then put it in the appropriate place. Paul is also looking for writers (as I'm sure you have noticed), and is toying with the idea of both "ask a pro" and "Luthier's Corner" forums (sorta like "Ask Lex Luthier", if you get my drift). Would any of our resident luthier type dudes be interested in helping man such a forum? Let me know what you think about all of this stuff.
