I've noticed a good number of game boards that have threads which ask a question. Some have quite a few threads which are asking questions. An example question could be something like "Where is ____ located? I can't find it." or "How do you beat the level 11 boss?" or any general-type question about the game.

My suggestion is the following...

Why not create a help topic for each game? It would be a thread where all questions about the game should be directed to. By doing this, there would be 1 thread for all Q&A instead of like 15 separate threads for each question. It would help keep things organized on some game boards where lots of questions are asked.

I'm not suggesting to go around to every single game board and create a help topic... Just for the more active game boards and all upcoming games from here on.

Well, when I'm looking to help someone on the boards, I look at the title, which usually talks about the problem by the tile I can tell if I can or cant solve the problem, I'm sure a lot of other people are the same way. For a help thread to work, you'd need the helpers reading it as well as the people needing help.

Another reason it wouldn't work out is, A lot of people don't read any posts, they just come in and ask a question that has likely been asked many times before. They should go to FAQ's first and then search boards for answers and then if needed post a question. But most people are too lazy to do so.
It is a lazy or newbie mistake. I was guilty of this when i first joined out of a lack of knowing how these boards work.
