Not all responses to questions in a forum will be of good quality. As in
life, there will be good and not-so-good ones. It's the nature of things.
Along the same lines, there will be "bad" questions, usually from noobs.
That's were the community steps in, to help the noob move to the next

I do not have the final say on this, but my proposal with respects to the
online presence of OI, is to retool the website, with an updated wiki, and
a forum-like app for more formal question and answer sessions and general

We need to build a vibrant community where noobs and guru-level users can
communicate freely
