Should we have a "Recommendation Requests" sub-subforum?

Seeing as how there's a subsection solely for identification threads simply because they pop up so often, I wonder if a similar thing might not be wise for the general recommendation requests, often from newcomers. People could still request specific recommendations in composer guestbooks and whatnot, but it might be a nice idea to have a place to funnel the plethora of new threads solely for "I like Beethoven's 5th and Tchaikovsky and stuff like that, what else should I listen to?" and whatnot.

What better way to welcome a new member than to treat their posts exactly as TC treats those of long-time members? Putting newbie requests in a separate area is implying to the poster that they're not ready to be allowed among the big people.
The great unsaid thing here is that this is a forum as much for absolute beginners which means the same old threads/polls covering introductory things every time a newbie appears. A percentage of these are likely to be immature as well though that's another issue. If that's what you like fine, but it shouldn't be a surprise that others prefer some stuff kept separate so the repeated stuff doesn't clog things up. Polls could have their own separate section for sure.
