Default Quick Questions thread?

I am a member of a number of fansites for the Sims 2, and one of them has a "quick questions" thread. I find it really useful if I have something I'm not sure of and just want to have someone confirm for me, such as "where can I find this information?" or "Is this working/not working for anyone else?" or "Has anyone heard from *member name* recently?" It prevents us from having a bunch of threads with only one or two posts in it, and keeps a lot of good information in one place. It would work a lot like the ask a GC thread that was in the training area, but anyone can ask and anyone can answer. It would probably work best in the General Discusson thread.

I know I have been absent from WI/WW for a few months now, and I'd like to be active in this community again. Consider this my first attempt at contributing to this community again.

What do you think?

This is what the Somebody Help section is all about! If this became possible, what would the need for that section be? Welcome back, and thanks for your contributing your idea, but I think Somebody Help is enough.

I have posted quick questions in the Somebody Help thread but, I don't think a little question is really something that is immediate. I think that there should be some sort of quick question section like you said!

Yeah, the somebody help! is more for immediate problems. On this website, the Quick Questions are non-urgent matters. If you have a major problem, they have another section.

Admittedly, half of the questions I see in the somebody help section would qualify as quick questions by my definition. Having just one thread for questions would *almost* eliminate the need for that section, as Priceless pointed out, due to the nature of Webkinz World as a game. There aren't any "if I remove this hack, will it bork my game?" because there are no hacks or mods to the game. Nor are there any "I can't download this piece of custom content on this site because of x," because this fandom doesn't span hundreds of different websites like that one does.

I personally, would be more likely to be of a help if everything was in one thread, due to the way I browse forums. Of course, I realize that wouldn't be for everyone.

Clearly, I didn't think this idea through (and, heh, completely forgot about the "Somebody Help" section.)

In addition to the Somebody Help! forum, we also have a FAQ, just like most websites do. You'll find it in the green words in the banner.

Although a Quick Question thread would be very handy, and I actually enjoy the idea a lot, I've seen something similar on other websites, and it sort of gets chaotic. People start quoting their unanswered posts, and it gets kind of cluttered. I think the Somebody Help! section is okay for now, but it is tempting to have a thread where you can just ask a quick 'I'm sort of curious...' type question.

Yeah, it depends on the size/traffic of the forum too, I guess.

Thanks for your input.
