Default forum proposal?

Maybe a "Help, I'm stuck" forum would be beneficial to the members of this site.

It's not a bad idea, but it doesn't happen that often, and people wouldn't be constantly checking that forum.

When people are stuck, and they resort to posting on the internet for help, you can probably assume they've exhausted all other options(friends and family) and need help asap. Waiting around for someone to happen to be free and check that specific forum is unlikely.

A recovery list would be freaking excellent. I've met enough people on this site that I'd trust putting my number on it.
