Why wouldn't novices/neophytes (newbie, yuk!) join the HELP list.  You can lead a neophyte to information but trying to force feed them is a waste of time and effort. 

There are many sites on the web where help can be found if not here.   What we could do is maintain a list of sites that are known to be good sources.

No. Absolutely not. kwlug-disc can continue as it was before. 

As for the other issues: this is a long discussion we have had several
times. If we use a web forum then our experts won't check it. If we
use a mailing list newbies won't join. If we try integration then
everything blows up. 

Rather than having this discussion again let me look for solutions. 

If somebody wants to start a forum then go for it and I can add it as
a help resource on the mailing list. (The BigTent thing STILL says
that it is temporarily down, which is not a good sign.)
