I think that Havok hit on the main reason why a lot of new players don't ask questions in the forum. I think another reason is that they think that if they say they are new, that they will become an easy target for the experienced players in the game.
So maybe what we need is a new person care taker that won't take advantage of them and give them advice to moderate a forum for them. This of course leaves Enemy#1 and Static out of the mix.

I would be very helpful, ask some of the newbies in games I am in now.
I am a very helpful person, unless my HW is less then 3 turns away from people. :twisted: :P :twisted:
I think a good idea is to set a Newbie vs a More Experience person, not in a allied mode, but as an enemy, a game with lots of good starting goodies, and about 30 turns. Let the Newbie attack and defend, and then after certain tactics are tried, they share info, on why something worked or didn't work. Just setting up a newbie with a good player as a partner, can lead to some people just being used as a pawn, and not really learning.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference.
The US Marines don't have that problem.
