Everyone already knows no one's going to use that. Senior members won't touch it and noobs won't read shit and will just make a new thread, just like they do now. Intelligence doesn't show itself until about the 100th post, in general

I guess starting the subforum would take the clutter out of SW&D, but if you wanted this as a solution to actually get your questions answered, I don't think that'll ever happen.
Most questions actually get answered unless they're stupidly specific, stupid, or subjective. Why is it people who rag on the stickies being useless never are the ones in there helping answer?
