Joan, part of the problem is that most newbies would not know there were boards to be searched, unless they just stumbled over them - hence the suggestion to include a link in the Learning Center drop down menu). It took me quite awhile to come across the surname boards, and even longer to find the regular message boards, mainly because I had no idea there was anything to find.

I think maybe you are expecting a little too much of a real newcomer (it's a little like a recipe, intended for inexperienced cooks, which starts off with, "first blanch the tomatoes, and while they cool make a dark roux"). They have to start at the beginning.
