It might help to prevent people from posting in the wrong forum or asking often repeated questions if, when viewing the list of forums, and then selecting one, if for example when Cultivation is selected:

The first screen to appear has three choices.

1. Read FAQ before posting! Many questions can be answered here.

2. Search before posting.

3. Proceed to Cultivation. Any non-cultivation questions should be posted in the proper forum or they will be removed.

With a "Continue" button next to each choice, perhaps then people will exercise a little initative and make this a better place for all. This should be done for all forums. Perhaps if a system like this can be set up so the forum list cannot be bypassed it will be best.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Well this has been discussed before, so far I don't like the idea since most people just click to proceed anyways without giving it thought. We also don't want to punish others who would have to click all those times just to get into the forum.

Newbies are a part of any message board, it seems a rule that as long as these boards exist, newbies will be around and people who've been around will bitch about them :smile:

I think it would make more sense to have a mandatory Faq's click through when you register to post on the board or else it won't let you sign up. Sure lots of people won't read it but some will. That percentage that does will post a few less posts then they would have before.

You could always tie it to the number of posts. A new users gets the screen until you have posted 50 times or some such. Though you are correct, nobody is going to read it anyway.
