Although that sounds kinda crazy, Q&A thread doesn't really cover "everything" for example, while a quick post-and-go "help decide my last team member" without movesets etc, and just based on overall coverage doesn't really need a thread within in-game, resulting in people having to ask for movesets to be mentioned too. I dunno, it just doesn't really seem to fit within Q&A, imo.

Also "which is the best in-game out of..." doesn't really fit anywhere, if people need help deciding between one or two and don't feel like putting up their entire team. Or just a simple moveset for an in-game team based on what can be done w/o breeding, etc.

There's also the fact that some newer members might be scared to post in the Q&A thread due to thinking it's purely competitive based when all they want is in-game team help. EV training questions etc are still competitive to an extent so they fit into Q&A.

As for sections, generally for certain sections the help stickies are for in-game help, and not in-game team help, which is what in-game team help caters for, but at the more advanced stage of team building (as in actually having a team and needing fixing) rather than the basic team-deciding level.

Either way, thoughts!
Now that I was reminded of this, I'm finally going to respond. I have thought in the past that IG (or IGTH, whatevs) needed a Q&A thread, especially since it's only going to have the rules sticky once the battling guide is finished (and replaces the intro to competitive battling). But yeah, I have no objections. I'll talk with Anti about making the thread soon.

@ Impo: I'll offer some input on that eventually; I'll have to find where I put my past ideas/notes for the league and events in general. (It will be a while before the league initiates anyway, clans are just beginning.)
