I've seen that this type of thread be a huge success on forums dedicated to other strategy games. The premise is quite simple: Instead of creating a new thread for a small yes/no or "where is...?" question, people can post their question(s) here. This will help keeping the forum more "clean".
Questions such as: "What is the best National Idea?" and that kind deserve their own thread since they're too complex and depend on a number of factors.
When answering a question, please quote the question you're answering. If no one seem to be answering your question, maybe no one knows at the moment, be patient.
To check if your question has already been answered, please use the "Search this thread" function to the right.
If this is successful a sticky from the mods would be nice
