What would people think about having top level #help & #beginners streams? I would imagine them being equivalent to #rust-usage and #beginners from discord and IRC where people can ask for help working with the language.

generally then people start looking for domain specific channels and it loses the point that the place is meant for working for the language rather than with the language. I feel we already have enough places for people to ask their general help questions

Well I feel like it is pretty easy to say no to those requests. We've typically only had a couple of general help channels on each platform and there are plenty of people who are only active on Zulip.

I think we should have one such stream, and make that stream part of the "default" set for new users.

#general already does that to some extent, it can be repurposed if needed
