FAQ & new members

All the more reason to read the FAQs and reath through the forum -- including that section on rules -- before posting. ;)


A lot of times new members ask questions that are in the FAQ. when you sign up for a new account on TJP does it say.. "thank you for signing up on TJP" or something like that? If so I think maybe "please read the FAQ" should be added. If there is already something like this.. Sorry. But I just think a lot of new members always ask questions that have been asked hundreds of times before. Of course it's not they're fault if they haven't read the FAQ and thats why I think they should be asked to read it.

the FAQ is linked on the home page(it actally says please read the FAQ before posting), and its bolded on the side bar. it cant get much more "here is the FAQ" than that. search and FAQ are bolded, the two things new members seem to not see. it just shows people only read what they need at moment

True, but it's not like(most) people are going to look for the FAQ if they're new.. They're just going to think about posting.. and totally miss it

If someone is new to the internet, I can see them not recognizing the value of a FAQ, but being new to our forum is no excuse.

"Read the FAQ" is the motto of the internet age.
