I saw this post and thought I would comment as I haven't logged in for quite a while. The issue really is that asking questions and getting answers on forums like this is quite out of date. if you want to learn you go to YouTube (instead of trusting the word of someone you have no idea of whether they have skills or not). For a community, then there is facebook, meetup.com etc. I'm not saying forums still don't have their place, but it needs to be in conjunction with other social media.
Maybe try Using the forum to link it all together?
