Ive seen way too many people posting on the lending section asking for a loan, obviously, without collateral and yes i know some of them are just scammers and know what they are doing but there are also newbies that dont know what collateral is and they just fill the section with useless threads. My idea is to give a warning when you click create new thread on the lending section that shows you a few links to the rules and whats a collateral, what do you guys think?

The problem (not real a problem) is that staff doesn't moderate scam or scam attempt so everyone should trade with his own diligence. If someone is scammed with all the information topic in the lending section, that it is not a fault of the forum but it is his fault.

PS: the newbie should read all the forum rules (and I am sure that they don't read them).

I agree with redsn0w. IMHO a better option would be to send a PM to newly registered users which have links to important stickies which help them to get some knowledge.

Most of the loan requests from newbies are actually requests from established users, using throwaway accounts.
A warning isn't going to deter them.

It could actually be usefull for new users, i didnt know what a collateral is and i got negative trusted. Eitherway lets be serious, who reads the rules at the begining? I think we all do after a bit of time, getting used to the forum is the first thing a user does and in my opinion needs to do.
