    What about a forum where MacRumors users says tips and tricks about Mac OS X and hardware. Example of this would like: A way to disable Dashboard, How to disable Spotlight, Step by step on how to add RAM to any Mac, How to upgrade a Mac's Operating System, etc.
    If we had this forum, there would be less newbie questions.

    There is already a Mac Basics forum, does this stop "newbie questions"? No.

    Oh and, no.

    Yeah, but some users would want to have that kind of stuff in a forum.

    We have forums and a wiki that already cover everything and break everything down quite nicely. We do not need another one.

    :D

    C'mon now. The OP has a good idea here, it's just that it's been done before, and in enough ways to justify not creating a forum specifically for this purpose.

    I think its a nifty idea. We commonly see topics such as "LOOK AT THIS COOL NEW TRICK IVE DISCOVERD" which is the commonly the inverted colors or the zoom feature thats been "discovred" many times over already.

    Sure, we could create a forum for it, but then you're assuming people will still search THAT forum for their supposedly brand new trick. If they don't search already, what's to cause them to start? Leave it at Mac Basics and the MR Wiki.
