I just happened to notice alot of peops asking questions in the completed projects board - and my guess is because there isn't a readily identifiable place to ask questions? This would definitely clean up the clutter on the completed project boards - I know I get somewhat "disappointed" when I open a topic about a hat to find it isn't a completed project but a craftster in need of help - and this would make it easy to get help as well - the questions can be found and answered faster  - yay for everyone!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

hmm.. I think that wouldnt be a very good thing. People who are into making purses and know purses usually frequent the handbags board, right? Well, say someone has a question specifically about purses. A person who may have the expertise to answer the question may not check the questions board, and therefore the original person wouldnt get his/her question asnswered. Itd be much easier for that person to ask in the handbags board and get more feedback, than just in a questions board.

If there were to be a questions board, it'd have to be multiple specfic boards. Like, a questions board under each category.

Thats an even better idea - good improvement on my original thought.  It would be nice to have a questions board for each category.

This already exists:  The 'Discuss Future Projects' boards in each category are for questions/concerns about things you haven't finished making yet.  The 'Completed Projects' boards are supposed to be for pictures/tutorials of things you have finished making.

If you notice a thread on a completed projects board that is asking a question, please hit the 'report to moderator' button so that it gets moved to the appropriate board.
