Good idea in principal, but it's got several issues stopping it.

Firstly, those in the 'team' would have to give up some of their time to answer the questions. As a moderator, I don't get to post as much as I did in the past as I'm reading everyone's drivel ( :lol2, so it could detract from someone's use and enjoyment of the site.

Secondly, although some may give unbiased information, some associated with shops will push what they sell, as we've seen with some shop owners in the past.

Thirdly, the 'Gear Guides' are currently over looked, hence why we still see all the what board/what length questions.

i was thinking of more "putting your mind at rest" kinds of questions.....rather than the same old "what board etc.."
