What about if there would be created a special sector at forum (just like general chat, suggestions...) for newcomer questions, where they would ask those questions.
This actually sounds like a pretty good idea! I`ll run this by Alex. "New to DoF? - ask questions here" sort of forum.
Also I do agree we are turning some new fans off by yelling at em for asking questions, and not wanting to dig through the FAQ. I mean really - no harm in more posts.
