I think is something we really need. It could be at the top of the forums to insure that new members read it. And they could ask any questions they had here instead of in unfitting topics.
Just a suggestion. This could also be a section where users could post their own articles, since it seems people can't add their own writing to the articles section right now? I realize that this forum is similar to that, but it doesn't seem like many people use this forum to ask for help.
