Here is my opinion. The Users section is just for that, users. If the forum were to seperate the ‘beginners’ from the more ‘advanced’ users than the beginners would get little input, as most experienced folks would rarely venture into the beginners section.
The purpose of these forums is to provide information, insight and answers to all levels of users. The more users that embrace, use and contribute to the community the stronger the entire community becomes for all of us. These are still relatively early days for Asterisk, therefore we are seeing an influx of noobs. Over time, as the community accelerates and gains additional critical mass it may then make sense to begin segregating as other more mature forums/technologies do.
At this time, I say we keep the forum simple and welcome all comers. Even though it does take patience at times.
