Not user friendly enough for the newbies.
From the main ubuntu studio site, I click on support, then click on the
link to ubuntu forums and then am presented with 37 forum links (
http://ubuntuforums.org/ ) to which there is no mention of ubuntu
studio. Right here, most newbies will quit.

Not really. Studio should be concerned about a 1 stop solution shop for
problems specific to Studio. Using the generic ubuntu forums just
doesn't cut it imho.
Another advantage of having studio specific forums would be to give you
devs stats on what aspect of Studio people are having most issues with,
hence, let you prioritize your resources more effectively.

ok, I'll make my suggestions to the devel mailing list. I don't mind
doing docs as long as it won't be buried on other sites and not
available on the studio site.
