People are now shown this helpful introductory information during registration. Should anything else be included? (This is not meant to be a complete reference, though.)

Here is some important information about the forum. This is not a rulebook or agreement.

RESTRICTIONS FOR NEW MEMBERS

After registering, you will be unable to post in any section except "newbies" until you have spent some time on the forum and have published a few posts.

If you are registering to ask a question, please ask it in the newbies section. Do not wait to ask it just because you must post it in "newbies": the question is very likely to have already been asked. If you don't end up getting good responses, you can ask it again elsewhere after you are established, or you can move the entire topic.

If you are commenting on Bitcoin, use your newbie wait time to read more about Bitcoin. If you are criticizing Bitcoin, find similar criticism using the search tool to see which points have already been covered. A good use of your newbie wait time is reading Satoshi's old posts.

STAY ON TOPIC

Every reply should contain some comment that is relevant to the topic post. Do not reply *just* to another reply -- include at least some on-topic comment.

If you would like to reply just to an individual reply, you can create a new topic about it.

MOVING TOPICS

All members have the ability to move their own topics. The link is at the bottom of the topic page. Do not ask moderators to do it.

ILLEGAL SITES/TRADES

Do not post trade offers that are obviously illegal in most of the first-world countries. Do not link to or advertise sites that are built to allow such trades.

I liked yours for the most part, just changed a couple of things and had fun with bold.

RESTRICTIONS FOR NEW MEMBERS

After registering, you will be unable to post in any section except "newbies" until you have spent some time on the forum and have published a few RELEVANT posts.  Read below.

STAY ON TOPIC

Every reply should contain some comment that is relevant to the topic post. Do not reply *just* to another reply -- include at least some on-topic comment.

If you would like to reply just to an individual reply, you can create a new topic about it.

ILLEGAL SITES/TRADES

AGAIN, RELEVANT

If you are registering to ask a question, please ask it in the newbies section. Do not wait to ask it just because you must post it in "newbies": the question is very likely to have already been asked. If you don't end up getting good responses, you can ask it again elsewhere after you are established, or you can move the entire topic.

"Please don't start a new thread asking if bitcoin mining 'worth it'" Or maybe a sticky about this in the newbie forum? Or maybe just a general guideline to look around a little before starting a new topic with your question? It seems 2-3 new topics get generated every day asking this same question over and over.
