I could understand this, if in terms of being moderated. On one hand we could say there aren't very many of us and we can just use the regular forum areas. Using the same argument, we could say there aren't very many of us so the area wont require much moderation.
I think this is one of those odd situations. No one should be dispensing structural advise without an indepth knowledge of the end users home/hanging area structure. Liability being what it is. To that same note, I think some of that is displayed when we give advise about outdoor stands or hanging from XX rope or webbing. Only you can be sure of what you are doing. I think there should be a blanket tag on here specifically directed at newer hangers to learn from the forums but be sure you have a direct understanding of what you are doing before you do it.
IKEA sells many items that you must hang your self. Their packaging informs you to purchase your own hardware and to be sure of how you hang it.
However, I think talk about brand, type, warming or cooling techniques and a place to share pics an tips would be cool and is very different than say the UL hiking/camping crowd.
Just my $5.00 lol
