Default Move the Newbie section UP

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?

+1 consolidates frequently common newbie-problems better.

And sometimes, newbie-questions are a good source for improving stuff that's too difficult in a sofzware...

I'm voting only because of Poland's 100th independence anniversary. And we have actually two independence days this year (today's an afterparty in case you didn't feel independent enough yesterday).

Nice observation. Hope this request will be performed. I know some peoples who think what REAPER not user friendly. Maybe approachable newbie forum thread will allow more easy adaptation to this powerful DAW

Moved Bug Reports and Feature Requests up the top and leave the Newbies languishing???!!!

If it wasn't for a constant influx of newbs, would Reaper be as successful?

I for one believe Reaper should Dominate.

just sayin...
