Somebody will ask about glue, posting a picture, or what did so and so do to end up in the DH.

What are the most frequently and repeatedly asked questions on TMP?

What size/scale is X terrain/building or Y figure range?

* DH? Don't you mean is "Talk To Gwen" just a long-term and open-ended DH, but without the "transparency" of the DH? :)

Should "true 25mm" be called something else that nobody can relate to?

The most frequently asked question is "How can I get information without either researching or paying the person who did the research?" (Yes, I'm guilty too.)

And even though you didn't ask, the most frequent ANSWER on TMP is "you can solve your problem--indeed, ANY problem--by buying a copy of the rules I just happen to have written and/or sell." (Bill, you could fix this by charging such posts as advertising.)

"How "white" were WSS French / Napoleonic Austrian / Imperial Stormtrooper uniforms, *really*?"

"Who stocks [THAT THING] in my country?" *Hint: I won't tell you *what* country, and my Member Page says nothing.

What if;
…Pearl Harbor was bombed by Canada instead of the Japan?

…Luxembourg invaded Russia in 1918?

Also, for questions like … "I know these are manufactured by some companies, but I would prefer to scratch-build something similar. How could I go about it?"

Even though it clearly asks how to scratch-build the whatever thing, and the topic is cross-posted in the Scratch-Building Discussion Board, inevitably a few manufacturers will try to sneak in links to their wares. Without fail. :)

What is the best glue for plastic kits and figures? Really sick of THAT one!

LOL. And now without the search feature, we're going to see a lot of those same questions … over and over and over again.
