I agree that we do want to make some tasks easier for beginners, but my preference is for us to invest in the docs at https://docs.opendatakit.org.
I prefer the docs to the forum because with the docs site, we can make terminology consistent, there can be linking to relevant articles to reduce duplication, it will soon be translatable and offlineable, we can track versions, we can open/close issues against the repo, etc.
That said, I do think the current docs could be a lot better about organization. @adammichaelwood started a conversation around this recently and I put my vision for the docs structure at (re)Organizing the Docs.
@abdoul, I'd love your feedback on the link above to see if you think it would help. If not, maybe you can write more about why the forum should be the place for this information.
