Default Move the Newbie Forum up to where it can be seen

In the feature request section, I asked:

OLD BIT:
"I have been quietly whining about this for at least a couple of years & only just thought to try it as a feature request.

The Newbie section is currently buried way down the laundry list of forum sections,(15th out of 18 sections I think) so an awful lot (most!) of newbie requests for help end up anywhere but in the section expressly designed to offer help.
Surely it makes sense to have the Newbie stuff at the very least visible on the first page, but ideally in second or third slot?


Almost tempted to make a poll of this one, but maybe a simple show of "+1"s will attract the forum admin`s attention?"

NEW BIT:
So even if you DID eventually find the Newbie section, how about a plus one in that Feature Request section to help other neophytes when they first get here?

Thanks!

Thanks for you +1s, guys!

So many positive responses and nothing from devs or webmaster...

*sigh*


Gonna keep persevering till it either happens or someone "official" tells me to shut up.

I think that moving the Newbie Forum up the list would be a good idea.

Bump. Wondering how long its going to take for someone in authority to respond...


even a simple "feck off" would suffice....

It's a test for the newbies to see if they look around. The first forum should be an I AGREE "I will read the manual"
