Proposal - create a section for hardware related problems

I've been looking through the posts in General discussion, and there are often problems with the physical hardware of boards or with peripherals (especially SD cards) We don't have a section to put them into, so they end up staying in General. I think to help new users, a new section should be added...

Re: Which IDE for "Serious" development

Re: Blue pill's Bootloader - what's goin' on .. ???

The Boards Manager package you used is created and maintained by @ddrown, and not updated very often.
