As with all fora, many of the questions asked here come up repeatedly, and often can be answered with a few links. In the language-specific boards at Dev Shed, there are sticky information threads that have links to download pages, tools, tutorials, and other resources; but for this 'catch-all' board, there aren't any. While such threads would be useful, having one for each language would quickly fill the top of the board with nothing but language-related stickies.
Perhaps we should have a thread that has postings for some of the more commonly mentioned languages here, such as Ruby, Scheme, Ada, and x86 assembly language. This would give the new readers a place to look up basic information, without overly cluttering the message board. Any thoughts?
