Me too felt the same after my manager suggested me this site. But the forum is too strict which is one of the main reasons for its name and fame in the testing world. If we just blindly post a question without any clues, hints, some thoughts of our own, then definitely we get bashings from our senior members. :-)
I found SQA Forums after I started a new job and one of my first tasks was to do some research into automated testing tools.
After reading some online articles, I decided to see if there were any forums and blogs that might discuss the topic and came across this site.
I clicked on the automated testing section and read the introduction guide which included some useful links to previous questions about the subject. It came in very handy not only as to what tools to consider but also the process of choosing and the pitfalls to try and avoid.
I posted my note on the chit chat area as it's introduction said to give it a try because I was bound to get a reply from someone - which I have.
I have a network of testing colleagues which I've built up over time and I'll be letting them know about SQA Forums as I think it's a great resource for testing related subjects and a good support for the humble tester whose skills and expertise have only recently begun to be appreciated more.
