Of course I know about the FAQ, and I know its the first place people should look. But that was not the point of this thread, or suggestion. I'm suggesting we have a separate thread for question-making, so then we can avoid being frustrated over people asking random questions in their own thread. Plus, the fact that one of our veteran forumers couldn't find the FAQ/didn't take the effort to find it only solidifies my point.
The FAQ was designed to provide the essential information AND allow people to ask questions there - that's why it's an open thread, not a closed one. This 'ask a question' thread is basically the same, and as people have said, people always overlook such threads anyway.
