As you know only advos and mods may post in E&C. Theres some topics in there that I've been itching to answer/comment on, but I've had to hold myself back so I wont break the guidelines. Well my idea is to somehow make it for people to add on to what the others have said. Make another forum I dont know something, lol.

That's what all the other forums but Ask ST are for. If you have any helpful (and non-redundant!) info to impart in one of them you're more than welcome to do so.

But maybe people that cant post in E&C have something important to add.

E&C is specifically for people in emergency situations, who need reliable information as quickly as possibly.

Having it open for all users to reply (as in all the other forums except Ask ST) creates the possibility that some users may unintentionally post inaccurate information or misguided advice (as sometimes happens in other threads), which might actually worsen an emergency situation.

Incidentally, I believe E&C formerly used to be open to replies from all users, so it has been tried that way around.
