Create/add a 'Revision needed' Forum (like Intro) for Threads *needing revision/rewrite* (n00bs)

I just noticed the mention of: "revise your thread",
in some 'junk' threads (usually by a first-time-poster=new-member),
meaning: "you need to: first learn: {How To Ask a Good Question,lmgtfy}"
(not {spam,troll}ers, which are handled(/ignored) differently).

(yup, even this Thread might go there, if Forum existed!!!)

{Who,What}ever approves first-Posts might selectively move such.
Mods/Guru/Sr./select-Members might be given the power to 1click move any Thread there.

Like Intro/General, it wouldn't be shown on {Latest,New} Posts / LQspy (&not ZRT!).

(visibility/deletion/repost/move policies could evolve later. Yes, all-Kali)

The value (IMHO) is: separation of what some LQ'ers do/don't want to see.
(I like [to try] helping these 'unfortunates'; some LQers freak with annoyance if they even spot such; some LQers are enticed into wasting effort [on this 'unfortunate junk' == 'posts which my-hobby is helping->myLearning'])

(yes, all LQ rules would still apply, including [my] not saying: "Go To He1!/r/Linux4noobs)

@Jeremy: might such a new Forum/process be considered?

Edit-added: @#2: Agreed; understood (trying). Thanks for response. Marked Solved.

Your threads are getting increasingly difficult to understand. Moving forward, please try to avoid text-speak, use full sentences, etc. We have no plans to add a 'Revision needed' Forum.
