I have to agree with our users on this, depending on who's available and the
question being asked the responses can vary widely from friend pointers to
documentation to complete ready made solutions.
e.g. rewrite questions,
They'll get answers raging from read this and learn regex to nudges in the
correct directions (examples in docs, wiki) to a correct and working

I also think this is part of what to expect on IRC, sometimes the people
around have more knowledge on the subject or more free time. Then again
maybe not answering at all in some cases would be better (as of the
##windows link)

I really like this idea, I've scan-read through the pages linked on the
wiki. I agree with quite a few things mentions not everything. I think the
hardest part is getting a few good rules that will make things better and
keep it simple.

I also like the idea to merge it with /general/IRC like Sling suggested but
we can keep /httpd/IRC for now as a scratch pad.
I'll see if I can pick a few and get a small list started on the page later
