I stared SQLTeam.com nearly ten years ago. I wanted to build a place where people could learn about SQL Server. In the early days we had something called "Ask SQLTeam". People could submit questions and we'd use those to get ideas for articles. We tried to answer as many as we could on the site. Gradually the flood of questions became too much and that changed into the forums you see on the site today.
