First thing you might want to do is change the name of this section. I dont think a newbie would actually know that the question they have is common. Something like "New and have a question? Ask here!". That right there is not much help, but you probably get the idea.
Maybe you could even make a whole "new user's" group of forms. One for general suggestions by more experienced members (kind of like a newbie FAQ, just bigger). Then one like this for general questions, and one for there ideas.
Maybe these will help, or maybe it as good as bull crap. I hope it's the first though.
