Since the hardware forum gets so much more traffic than the basics area, I think a lot of basic question still end up being asked in the speakers/receivers/sources areas, when quite a few of the answers are already available in the basics area (is that a run on?) would it be possible to have a sticky or some other way of annotating that basic questions should first be referred to the basics area? I know that it already states this in the forum descriptions area, but I'm not sure everyone reads or heeds that information. Perhaps the description of the basics area should say "New members - START HERE for basic/hardware questions"? Or would this cause some other issue that I am not seeing?
