Does that clarify?

It does, yes, thank you :)

I was unsure to what that new thing is. There's a forum already. This 
seems to be yet another resource. For John Doe, the average user, what's 
the difference between Ask and the forum? Don't you fear to spread the 
volunteers' efforts in one more place?

Hmm - yes, it is a concern from a general perspective. In the concrete
instance of the moment and of course IMO this new site will not do so.

A couple of factors, but none larger then the fact that the user base is
growing at a steady pace and the number of people available to 'work'
these sites will also grow. 

Another factor, there is sufficient differentiation between existing BBS
forums, mailing lists and this Q+A site, with regard to how the service
offers services, that questioners and responders alike will likely self
select which service type they are most comfortable with. 

Best wishes,
