I think it is a very good idea, Jrod! There are a couple of flaws here and there, and most of them were mentioned in some of the above comments. I think it could work, but the moderators would have a lot of work to do, and most BD people will use this thread solely to get their questions answered. There are also little problems like how will the questions be asked (a new topic for each one will get hectic, whilst more than one question on a thread can get a bit confusing). It's definitely an interesting suggestion though!

I think we need a venting catagory where poeple vent and BDers help them out.

Especially if it's about BD.

Now when I was a kid, we went to the library and did research with the card catalogs. I am not opposed to your idea at all. I just think that there are many other places on-line or by telephone or library, to get the help required.
This site has a multitude of forums and, perhaps, it's not as necessary as it seems. :D

Man, you know what I hate most? When teachers made you site 2+ books in your projects/essays and say you can only use the internet for one of your three resources. I remember once I put "<website>, my logic, and my critical thinking". Didn't get a very good bibliography grade, but who cares.

Check out math and physics help sites that are out there now.

They have a protocol which could be a model for use here.
Especially the part about [not] giving answers per se, but helping to find the right approach, etc.

I would be willing to participate, with no guarantee of time of response, as I'm sure others would.

"Homework Help" forum is a great idea. There is a lot of kids and a lot of smart people skilled in many fields here.

Rules for the forum are already prepared and the main focus is on HELP with homework and not doing homework for someone.

Check "Miscellaneous" section for the new forum - coming soon. All willing to help could write their field of expertise in the first topic (sticky) in the new forum.

Thanks to all willing to help with homework.

So it will be a topic in Others, or a catagory in Misc.?
