QUOTE (tomw_n - 28/02/2012 @ 16:26)

Idea:
1. A list of the top irritating continually asked questions is drawn up by forum regulars.
2. People with a clue nominate an author to take some time to write an encyclopaedic answer to the question with pics, diagrams, FAQs about the topic. Mods are responsible for keeping these up-to-date and asking people to research & write more if necessary.
3. Whenever noobz post requesting info on one of the topics, whoever gets there first links to the sticky and the topic dies by itself.

Make a list of top q's then Tom.....

1. Should I take lessons?
2. What boots should I buy?
3. What boards are good for a beginner? (one for you Tom)
4. What is my ideal board length?
5. Good resorts for a beginner

I think your right people, it ain't gonna work!

To many stupid questions!

At least it gave us something slightly different to talk about rather than "how many lessons are enough?"
