in thread a new Q&A category

I think you should be able to post questions on SoPW..without fear of being downvoted. Many newbie questions may seem dumb or trival.. but who knows.. there are most likely others out there that have had the same questions and may be afraid to ask. We've all been newbies at one time or another. :) I think that most here would gladly be able to help or explain - but before posting any question - try and see if it's been posted or explained before using Super Search or whatnot (i.e. Google ,, etc.).

    ld2 has got a valid point here. An area for the total newbie where questions cannot get downvoted (or upvoted for that matter) would be a good idea.
    That way newbies can learn the obvious without 'learning it the hard way' ie losing *cough precious XP. We should ofcourse restrict posting in this area to level 1-3 or something, real monks should never be afraid to face the monastery with their questions :)
