    Suggestion for newbies \"STEVE please read\"

    Hey Steve how about this:
    ANd guys please don't flame me on this, it just gets frutrating to answer the same questions the same day multiple times.
    How about when someone registers, they can go in and read anything but until they go in and read the PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST they can NOT POST.
    I know it's a sticky and it's right in their face but it doesn't matter they still go by and post the question that is in the same page.
    I am still being nice and answering them but I am getting tired of this, and I want to help the ones that might really need what I know.
    Just a Thought. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    It should be part of the registration process, you shouldn't be able to post anything, until you've read it and filled out your profile..... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I think 99 percent of people would just click through it like we all do the "accept these terms" when we install new software. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Well it was a suggestion, and I still think it would be worth it, some people actually don't know about the search feature and the fact that most of their answers are already there. When we tell them they say oh thank you next time we will do a search.
    So I think we will filter some of them.
    I know there will be some that will just click it and continue, but some might read it, after all it's only ten or so lines.

    Right now the software does not allow me to do that, I'm sure it could be hacked some how but who knows.
