where as newbies I see as a place for newbies to ask really basic questions like "what peg do i need" "newbie to camping needs help" "HELP first time campers"
Well I still disagree with you on the Polls section Komodo but that's life.
My belief is that if we had them all in the one place they would be much easier to find. Much easier to source the info and results too. New comers would be able to go there (pretty self explanatory) to have a look at what has already occurred and get some ideas from them. It could then generate more forum activity which is what I thought you were aiming for.
Re the newbies, why not have it as you have already explained, it would be less confusing that way. "HELP first time campers" is again pretty self explanatory.
