I am suggesting that the newbie Forum be located MUCH higher on the Forum Index page. How do you expect a Newbie to find these rules here, buried under item 14 or so? They are a newbie, remember?
And they didn't come here to be a newbie, but to contribute in a discussion.
It took me 8 months to find this sub forum, and in the meantime I learned a lot on how forums work (From another forum, mind you). Couldn't even post a simplest post here in the meantime.
I can only imagine how much frustration this is causing others.
No doubt that (see Quote of kokjo) that the intentions of the forum elders are good, but the execution sucks.
Just another example of "road to hell paved with good intentions".
No need to piss newbies off if you just put the Newbie Forum MUCH HIGHER (place 1 or 2) on the Forum Index.
please do so! and get a post
don't be so negative, the 5-post-4-hour-rule is there for a reason: to get rid of the trolls. NOT to piss newcomers off.
relax take it easy and smile. Mod note:
