    So, I have a boatload of small (probably stupid) newbie questions that I'd like to ask. Should I ask them in one thread, or multiple threads? What if I come up with more questions later...tack them to the end of other threads containing a question from me, or new thread?

    Sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere, but I couldn't find an answer, and I didn't want to make myself a nuisance by posting too many annoying questions.

    would get better results with multiple questions in one thread.

    Well, the issue is more that I have one or two questions now, but I know for certain that i'll have loads more as time goes on. I want to ask them, but I want to do so in the least annoying manner.

    you can probably just bump your old thread when you have new questions. a thread with responses looks more enticing than a new thread without any responses.

    or ask in the chatroom for fast answers, I always try there first before turning to the forum, 90% of the times someone in the chat can help me instantly.

    I'd say it's probably not as fast but better to get the question down on the forums. Considering people will search the forums for answers and if the question is already answered there, they don't have to ask themselves.

    This saves on having the same question asked in chat over and over, as well.

    Ok, excellent, the chatroom is more like what I was looking for, I guess. I mean, for more in depth questions I was going to just use the forum for the reasons Crash suggested, but for dumb little questions, the chatroom is perfect.

    (But really, not IRC chat? I searched for a chatroom in the search options, but I assumed IRC was the place to be, so no useful responses came up. And I couldn't find a link to the chatroom elsewhere on this site :p Well, anyways, thanks.)
