    Perhaps this would make the 3DS Homebrew Development forum easier to read if newbie questions instead had another subforum? That way those who want to read about the new releases/recent developments of homebrew and emulators can do so more easily, and maybe new releases and help/question posts alike will not be buried by each other.

    If my suggestions seems a bad one, please discuss with me why you think so.

    What thread? I feel bad, but I can't seem to find what thread you're talking about.

    I can see the OP's point. If they're posting in ROM Hacks or Homebrew, they won't even see that thread and just post obvious questions that annoy people. Having a separate sub forum would make it much easier to see.

    That's exactly why we do need help sections. Not just some random thread in a random sub-forum.

    But isn't almost every thread in every section an help request? ;)

    It seems as though you already understand the problem.

    It could help to rename the subforum to Custom Firmwares and Flash Cards? I think it's easy to just read "Flash Card" and ignore it not owning one. I always forget this subforum exists because I got used to ignoring it before I first downgraded to 9.2.

    I do see the logic in putting it in this forum, but I think I've gotten so used to seeing so many A9LH/help requests in the Homebrew & Emulators Development sections, that I didn't even think to check the other subforum for the noob paradise thread.

    Why we need a help section. Take notes, mods.
