Is it only me that is kind of annoyed over all the almost the same "How do i start a new cycle?", "How do I memorize?" and all those threads? It's not the question that are bad, it's just the aura of not reading or thinking things through, but ask immideatly.

Wouldn't it be a good thing if all the threads with beginners questinos were at the same place? The beginner-threads disappear fast in the pages, since they're answered, and not written in that many times (mostly). That means that a sub-forum would make kind of a FAQ, in forum form.

This would help the "not beginners" to get a more clean forum, and the beginners to get a better forum too. Wouldn't it?

(When I say beginner, I think I mean those who need help to solve 3x3 blindfolded)

Edit: I know that it maybe would've been better to put this thread in the "Help, support & suggestions" category, but since it concerned everyone reading in this category, I thought that I might ask here instead.

Shelley's idea is good, yes, but I don't think that will prevent people from still creating those threads. People use the "which cube is better" topic all the time when starting new threads.

I think we need some sort of forced guidelines with some sort of "punishment" when these guidelines are broken. Instead of the New User thread that we have, make that be checked off at sign up for registration, so we have some sort of accountability. I don't know, it's a problem with pretty much every internet forum where you have new members.

I'm not against the idea of a One question thread, but I'm not sure it will cover the total beginners question. People will still ask what method is the best, if they should quit learning 3OP for Classic Pochmann, and so on.

And I'm afraid get a lot of answer that's "I use 3OP, but dunno if it's better" and the discussion will get out of hand. No one will look through a long thread to find there question.

Ok I was wandering what most people think I should do to learn BLD. I think i am going to learn old pochman because I understand it better. Except I need like a noob friendly video on it. The tutoials on paper kind of confuse me. Also I don't know pll. so should I learn that first. Thanks
