I still love websites that moderate this to require 10 posts before being allowed to start new topics, with one of those posts as an introduction in the stickied introduction topic.

I don't mind helping people at all, but I think that approach makes the conversations a lot clearer and more productive once they do hit 10 posts and have given an intro.
One hopes we will hear from the OP again in a few months, giving kudos to all. They wanted to know a particular thing, knowledge imparted. temporary end of topic. Sometimes the next thing we hear is like, "Is it better to do one long SS interval or several shorter ones?" Or OTOH, maybe they said, "Hell with that, I just want to ride my bike around the neighborhood."

I think your post asks the question, "Do we want to be more of a community, or just an open resource, an encyclopedia of cycling?" Is that fair? For my part, don't want to first have to pass a test before I google a topic.
