    Do you think there is any value in having a forum dedicated specifically to new DBAS, or do the current forums cover this adequately?

    I think current forums cover new DBAS, but may be will be better to have new one.

    The forum covers everyones needs adequately, I think there should be something like that however, but it should specify very newbie quesitons something like "How do I run a profiler trace??" becuase if the newbie has a very serious performance consern he should post in appropriate forum.

    I would recommend having a Newbie section on the site first and then having a newbie section. This will help the newbies to look at common queries and their soluitions.

    As for me I don't personally mind answering to a Newbie question in the main forums.

    All the sections in the forum covers each area extensively.
    I feel there is no requirement of newbie forum as of now, it will be another overhead to transfer the threads if that concerns to be a newbie question.

    Gee, I can't yet tell from the responses so far what the consensus is. I will give this some more time, allowing others to voice their opinion.

    I vote against. It doesnt bother me to see newbie questions mixed in with the other threads.

    We have more than enough room already the new "Non-Transact SQL Developer Performance Tuning" no one even go there <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />.<br /><br />May the best cheaters win

    I vote against it too. If you are a "newbie" you probably don't know which forum to post in anyway and you will probably post in the first one you find or in all of them <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' />

    I think the concensus is no new forum. Thanks for everyone's input.

    I was late to reach to this post .

    My opinion in is that Newbies can make use of forum "General DBA questions" .There is no point in creating a seperate forum ,as newbie quetions can also come under different categories .

    I also don't see the need for a dedicated forum for newbies.

    Dusting off old post, I don't see any requirement of new forum by taking current placement of sections.

    I think there is no need for newbie forum.
    The term "General" itself refers to both newbie and experienced persons to post question
