Default A possible suggestion?

Is there anyway to set up a newbie question section , where ppl can go and ask "dumb" questions without being flammed? When i first started i got it quite a bit and made me kinda hate asking questions (not here, actually most ppl here were more then willing to help). but asking questions is the best way to learn i feel.

I agree that searching does help as well though, some questions i needed pictures in order to fully understand.

But that way the ppl with a ton of experience can choose to help, or not be annoyed with the little stuff?

just a suggestion, feel free to share ur opinion.

OR

is it already here and I am just not looking hard enough?

It's a good idea, but in reality i don't think it's gonna happen. There are some people on here that feel they need to reply to posts even if they have nothing constructive to add to it.

i'm guilty too

You know, go over to NAXJA if you think this is an issue. It's awful over there. There's alot of knowledge and alot of people more than willing to help here, I've never been flamed and people have anyways replied within minutes of me posting.

That's exactly the way it is now.

I totally agree with this statement. We're actualy pretty relaxed.

This is more for the newbies than the thread creator.

When I first started out "web wheeling" and trying to get ideas & tips for my Jeeps... I asked a TON of dumbass questions until one day, a guy that was nice and hated seeing people get flamed told me some very valuable information. [please note: I still ask dumbass questions if I cannot resolve them... read on]

The problem with newbie questions is that they're all pretty much the same. "What kind of lift, tires, suspension, axles...:chiefwoohaw: should I get???"

He directed me to the little button up in the header of the website that says, "SEARCH". Type the main topic of your question in there and you'll get a TON of research & discussion. No matter what your budget is, how extreme you wanna go or off the wall you think your question is... chances are someone else has already asked it. If then you don't find what you're looking for... ask.

I'm not trying to flame you with this, but how many times can someone ask, "I just bought a Jeep and want to lift it! How far should I lift it and what kind of tires should I put on it???" before you wanna take a .45 to your own noggin.

If there were a newbies section... the first sticky should read: "We cannot tell you what you should do with your Jeep/Truck/SUV first, because frankly we have no idea what you plan to do with it, how much you want to spend on it, the way you drive and a million other factors. Please just take it out as it is and wheel with it. What you need to do to it first, will come rapidly into your mind."
