    Is the Questions section necessary?

    I've always wondered what the point of that section was on the old forum because it seems much more appropriate to ask a question under a topically relevant section. Also nobody has posted in it yet, probably because Dew has covered most of our bases...

    From a potential user's perspective, empty sections are a red flag that the forum isn't happening and the community isn't that active.

    I was constantly moving topics to the Questions forum because they did not fit easily anywhere else. For example, where would someone post a topic about how to find a judo class in Omaha, or if anyone knows an old judo teacher named Ben, or how do you tie back your long hair? Most of the questions were sort of personal or had limited value to the general membership. Of course, any question about history went to that forum, gear questions went to gear, etc. Still there were a lot of questions that end up in the Open forum that are not of interest to most people. The questions forum also invites new members to ask things they wouldn't want to put in the open discussion area.

    In the old JF Questions section there are over 3082 topics, and 32,359 replies -- more than 13 other forum sections making it the 5th most popular section of the forum.

    The fact that there are no questions posted in the first weeks of this forum doesn't mean much. For 100 members there are way too many forums here anyways. The number of forums should grow only as the volume of posts demand it for better organization, but I have no doubt that if the membership grows, especially new members, then some questions will be asked.

    is the questions forum gone? looks like the "no" vote won out. and I was just looking for it to post a question that does not fit well in any other forum.

    It looks like it is gone. I guess my post wasn't convincing.
