We've got loads of great Q&A content for beginners. We also get loads of beginners asking similar "where to start" type questions. It's time consuming to always say "read this and this and this" then trying to remember them all, fighting through search and a thicket of links to find them.

Can we make, community-wiki-answer, then either protect or close as too broad a Q&A combo where the question is the most broad possible "Design beginner, where do I start?" and the answer is a big structured sectioned list of our quality beginner resources?

Then every broad newbie question, we either say "you might find this useful" and link to it if it's not a dupe, or if it's already covered, we dupe it to this one.

Listing questions such as:

You get the idea... The GD.SE graphic design syllabus.

    This is exactly what's needed imo. +100. Yisela once suggested having separate answers for subjects, and then the accepted answer pointing to each subject (so that an answer can be accepted) on my key design principles question. I never got around to doing it, but it may be useful here.
