    this just poped into my head
    why not make a newbie disscussion topic section
    a section in the fourm for just newb questions or FAQs in the main page



    i think its a good idea
    :eek:

    Well.....TTORA has a newby section, and I think it has cause some flame wars....If a new guy posts in the wrong section, they get hit with a "DAM ****** NEWB!!!" type reply. "Go to your **** SECTION, NEWB!"....Im not thinking it would be a good thing for this board.

    X2 TW isn't a fraternity-- The noob is just as important as the regular member. Besides, don't we all love being helpful and answering questions about our Tacomas? I don't see a prob. with a section like this as long as it's not a thread to heckle. We've got a pretty respectful community here. :)

    You DO realize you can choose NOT to go into those threads, right?

    Wasn't there talk before about not letting new users start their own treads, aside from the intro section, until they reach a certain post count? I think that would be the best way to cut down on the same threads being created over and over and over again. No need for a different section just utilize the search function a bit.

    TW is the way it is, due to the helpfull friendly atmosphere. If there are 5 posts of the same topic, who cares? No one has to view it. TTORA has its way, and it works for them. How hard was it to scroll past the 5 similar posts? I think there are alot of people who have found this site, who have never been on a forum before, and dont know how to navigate thru it. Weather or not there is a section like what is being suggested, is irelavent...They wouldnt find it anyway. On a new persons "Newb" posted question, either dont go into the thread, or answer it, and give some helpfull links in which they can find with a search for future use.
