It seems that everyone simply assumes that their problem is "advanced" if they can't figure out how to solve it (hell, the title of their high school physics course might even be "Advanced Physics"). I'm tired of seeing simple Newtonian mechanics problems in the Advanced forum. A simpler classification scheme (for the drive-by help-wanted poster) would involve three forums: 1. High School Physics 2. Undergraduate Physics 3. Graduate Physics Then there can be no mistake (except for the occasional person taking remedial physics in college). Of course, people still won't read. Some improvements could possibly be made to this suggestion. Feel free to add.
