    Default Suggestions for Admin to improve forum.

    I want to show some suggestions to the Admin of this forum to improve the experience for newbies and help ease the frustation of members seeing the same old questions.

    Feel free everyone to add any suggestions, and then I will pass the info to the admins, if they dont read it already.

    And carlos, please dont give me any shit

    1) Improve visiblity of Stickys i.e increase font size, change font colour to red??? (suggested by other members)

    2) Stop new members from posting for a week or so. (suggested by other members)

    3) Get new members to agree (tick box) to read the stickys/guides first during registration

    4) Allow searching for non-members (why is this common in forums? workload on servers?)

    5) Have a pre-warning message before posting about reading sticky for members with under 5 posts

    I dont know how flexible the forum backend system is?, and is it worth making changes?. I am truly intrested in helping both sides of members, the experienced and the not so much experienced.

    I think the main problem here are not the newbies. Most of the shit are not in the initial posts but in the replies to newbie posts. Instead of just ignoring them, everyone seems to have the need to blame newbies... Moderators should instead block those self-styled moderators.

    You certainly have no idea what is to be moderator here and how much time it takes to clean the mess everyday.

    When i say the mess, i mean all the useless posts, threads started by people that always have only 1 or 2 messages.
    They ask question in the thread they create, but you can find the very same topic in 10 seconds by using search.
    Why don't they ask inside the already created thread ?

    The worst is when you have to rename/move/merge posts/threads because some guys are to lazy to think about a correct thread's name.

    This forum contains answers for about 90% of new asked questions.

    And no, we are not blaming newbies, we just try to show them that using tools that they have to their disposal can shorten their problem.

    Now, i admit it, sometimes it is not easy, and some modo may sound rude, but you know, we are also just human.

    An we have a life/work/other things to worry about.

    Wrong. I'm one of the moderators of a swiss iPhone forum. And I exactly know how much effort is needed...

    The problem is only a matter of size.

    I don't think you have to deal with the same daily posts average.

    no need to change font more like change headings like

    1.1.2 questions

    1.1.1 questions

    ringtone questions

    theme questions

    application questions

    game questions

    unlocking questions

    ect would make the site a lot easier to navigate and easier to find what we looking for.

    on my car forum, a newb can't start a new thread until he/she have 30 post...
    so that way they are forced to : ask question in a existing thread, use search button

    maybee this could be a good option...
