Default Idea For New Forum

I'd like to hear other's opinion on a possible new 2+2 forum. It would be called something like Help Me With This Problem. The idea would be to take advantage of the thousands of experts and all around smart people who come here. The original post would be required to be a request for help, advice, or the answer to a specific question, hopefully from people with expertise on the subject.

The argument against such a forum is that people are already engaged in seeking and getting help on many different subjects in the indiviual forums regarding those subjects. So maybe it would be counterproductive to lump together all types of requests for help. What do you think?

If we had that forum, this post should be moved there.

This forum would be called OOT and it already exists. I remember when OOT (and any other "new" forum) was kind of laughed at, sort of a "novelty". Now we have "The Special Sklansky Forum" and Sklansky himself wants more novelty forums? Lol...do you see why?

Perhaps you have never read "Sklansky on Poker Theory"?

I think this would involve quite a bit of overlap with other forums. For example, the "computer technical help" forum would be wholly a subset of this new forum by definition.

Also, I don't know if people with specific expertise would necessarily be interested in wading through this new forum looking for questions involving their particular subject. In the current format, those with specific areas of expertise are already participating in dialogues on forums related to those areas where they are both giving and getting. It seems unlikely to me that they would be willing to frequent this new forum where they are (more or less) only answering questions asked by the ignorant and not participating in same-level discussions with others.

I think the one new forum we need is health and fitness.

I think it would work if you had sub categories to further define the focus

[/ QUOTE ]Perhaps what David really wants is to be able to post on 2+2 questions on matters on which he is not an expert, and be able to actually get input from experts.
