That's exactly what Richard is currently implementing. That alone
won't stop the "how do i" posts - it's a Cosmic Rule that many people
won't bother searching a forum (beyond a casual Google effort) before
posting their own (oft-repeated) query. :/.
It might, since forum softwares (should) provide "sticky posts" that are
displayed at the top.
Combined with a good search feature, it should reduce the recurrent "How
do I?" posts.
