    Arrow newbie needs this, newbie needs that

    Hiya
    I've been browsing the forum the past few days and noticed a massive number of totally non-descript titles. Often "Newbie needs help", "newbie yadda...". I'm not one for nitpicking but this is a pain in the backside...

    How do I know if I can help these people or whether the thread is of interest to me? I have a narrow field of skills here and an even narrower internet connection, is there any chance of putting a note on the reply page or something?

    Thanks for reading

    I'll look into creating "Posting Guidelines" threads for some of the other categories (apart from the current JS programming) as well. One of the challenges facing the forum is successfully accommodating people on opposite ends of the spectrum skills wise. A FAQ section should also help when it's added.
