Which channel, protocol (IRC), website (forum,google), blog, are you using for asking help?
Ofc, except our wonderful crunchbang.org/forum
Well there is as you mentioned, the wonderful forum and you can also use irc.

The beauty of living things is not the atoms that go into it,
but the way those atoms are put together.
linux for the most part is linux and just because you use one distro does not mean you can not use other forums wiki's. google/"any search engine" is great for finding queries no matter the distro as long as you know how your system is set you can implemint most. I have yet to find a better wiki than arch's.
obstacles are only in your mind. how you deal with them is what "matters".
Help for what exactly?
As far as Linux goes, I use the Arch Linux forums, #! forums, and as a last resort I would try Neowin.net (they do have a Linux section )

It's almost always a case-by-case basis. Don't really have a specific channel or website I go to.
Usually seek help in this order;
1. Man pages
2. Web searches (DDG, Google, whatever)
3. Distro/OS related wiki pages, forums or mailing lists*
4. Whatever place the documentation points to if all else fails (usually an IRC channel or private mailing list of some sort)
5. Reinstall and try again**
6. Voodoo dolls
7. Large metal bat
* Sometimes I tend to use the Arch or Gentoo wikis for other Linux distros as well.
** Not always an option, for obvious reasons.

@gutterslob I didn't know DDG, seems really cool!
I'd like to understand if except the distro forum/wiki there is some main website where you can ask for general help.
I mean, cyberciti.biz is one of the most common website I find while looking in Google; I also find linuxquestions.org, but hardly ever it answer to my questions.
The point is, I really like Linux, I love almost everything of it.. But when I have some technical question or issue abt networking or bash or setting up a server and so on, it would be really comfortable have only one place to write or to search.
It's like IRC channes.. Many distro/software has the channel on Freenode, so one server many communities.
@donpi's sig: I do indeed! A basic one I make in every distribution that I go to.
Sorry for the OT!
EDIT: Seems like you already have it there! Its the last one!
EDIT 2: Might I recommend you to the Tips, Tricks and Scripts section of this forum if you are not already familiar with it?
