Do you subscribe to snap and happstack mail lists? I don't, but I wouldn't
be surprised if Yesod has more help questions. Yesod likely has the most
users and the least active IRC channel.
We could try to send Yesod help questions to stackoverflow and IRC. But we
really need a community that is willing to help new users on those
locations- particularly IRC.
