It's not that one kind of question is for the beginners list and only more 
advanced questions are to be posted in the cafe, the distinction is

- the beginners list is lower traffic, so your questions are less likely to 
be overlooked there (though it's unlikely to be overlooked in the cafe 
- questions on beginners are less likely to get answers involving terms 
like "zygohistomorphic prepromorphism"

So it's more a decision of "what kind of answer do you want" where to post 
your question.
Another aspect is that your question and the answers are more visible on 
beginners (especially to beginners), so if you think your question is 
something many beginners would wrestle with, that's a reason to post it on 
beginners (or both lists), so other beginners may profit more from it.
