Descriptions of forums

We still see a lot of posting in inappropriate forums due to people not understanding the intended subject matter for each forum.  While the forum headers are pretty good in specifying the topics, I think further work in defining them might reduce this problem.  Since we see so much of this problem I think the effort to more clearly define the forums would be well spent.

I think the Community Assistance (aka Forum Help) forum header confuses many people, especially newcomers to the forum.

The regulars know that it is a forum for asking questions about forum usage/issues, but for the newcomer, it sounds like just the place to ask the forum members for help.

As a result, that particular forum is flooded with general modelling questions - "where do I get...", "How do I..." etc etc.

Yep, that is my point.  I think if the "mission statement" of the forum was expanded a bit, maybe we'd have fewer of those posts.
