Using the Forums is an easy way for new researchers to communicate with the experienced researchers. It also gives many other users the chance to participate. So you have the situation where members may say, 'How do I use this?' Other members may already know how to do this and may be willing to share."
The answer is then posted in the Forums so that others who comes along later with the same question may find their answer(s) quickly.
