One of the things pointed out to me are the number of times the same questions are asked and how that repetitiveness has led some of the older members to respond with a bit of snark and "use the search" instead of typing in the answer for the umpteenth time.
Based on the number of shoe questions, I made the big fencing shoes post on the main site. Now I'm looking for more things to do as beginner guides and FAQs.
Ultimately what I'd like to have is a set of primer articles to point any new user to when they register - sort of a welcome packet of information. We already get lots of downloads of our Parent's Guide to Fencing, so maybe just re purposing some of that content into guides that are easier to navigate to.
