SITE Suggestions and SITE Help

It looks to me like there's a recent rush of tech questions being posted in the "Site Suggestions and Help" forum. Even the bright red notice and handy link that comes up doesn't seem to be making a dent.

How about changing the forum name around a bit:

Site Help and Suggestions

It wouldn't even have to be changed in the database, just in the display of the page.

To my eyes, the above arrangement would remove the ambiguity of "Site Suggestions and Help". That "Help" hanging by itself on the end looks like a life raft in a storm to someone trying to get a quick answer.

I agree...It should be changed to Site Help and Suggestions. What the heck give it a try and see how it does. Nothing ventured...Nothing gained.

Website Problems and Suggestions would be better........Its like Grouch says... Problems or Help on the end hanging by itself gets mis-understood. All you got to do is reverse it. Site Help and Suggestions or Website Problems and Suggestions.

I agree with Henry. Grouch hit the nail on the head when he made his first comment. When help is not modified than there will be problems.
