    This to the moderators/Da boss and everyone else.

    Would it be easy to implement a procedure whereby, a newbie is about to post his/her first thread and before the page appears they have to go through the forum rules first.

    ie.
    post new thread.
    page appears displaying forum rules
    once read - you can then start a new thread.

    And this could happen for say their first 3-5 threads.

    Then, they should have read the rules BEFORE posting - and may reduce incorrect posting.

    Obviously - people may just disregard the rules anyway, but may improve things.

    Granted, it may be pain in the backside but it may get the message across.

    Just a thought - any suggestions welcome....
