Yeah. A lot of forums have topics that are permanently posted to top of the forum. Such topics are usually: "Beginners and Newbies"; "FAQs"; or "Tips on how to use this forum."
Anyone may post in these topics, but the first/original post of each topic is maintained, edited, and updated by a moderator and may include helpful links, etc.
debugging facts" reminds me of "FAQs," or etc. The topic could have an ongoing conversation (like any other topic), but the original/first post (at the top of the topic) could be almost like a contents list, or main-page, which is edited, updated, and maintained as new "debugging facts" or "FAQs" are questioned, debated, and resolved within the body of the topic.
I feel like this would help the forum a lot. There wouldn't be so many posts that ask the same ol' questions. Also, a better 'search' interface would help. But I dont know how that works..
