Obsession . . . not really. More like a precaution. People were beginning to complain, so why not just try to solve the problem in one go? Then again, even like this, there's never any guarantee that the so-called "problem" will go away . . .

n00bs are technically a problem on every forum. True, it's not necessary to take huge preventative measures, but having a concise and well written guide is helpful to point people to. Hopefully by pointing someone here, they'll realize the error of their ways. If not, then the embarrasment of being stupid will either get them banned or they'll just leave on their own.

Or the rest of the old and stingy members will scare them far away, if "the embarassment of being stupid" will not. biggrin.gif

Haha, of course. It's hard to forget about him. laugh.gif

Thanks for the reassurance of the potential effectiveness of the guide, guys. It's nice to know those 2 hours I wasted was not in vain. biggrin.gif

laugh.gif <3 at first sight.

Hmm, maybe you should consider putting those up in the guide along with the explanations. More appealing that way. tongue.gif

Actually, they could just be inserted into the post saying that the thread will be closed or merged smile.gif - get people to realize more that they need to search.

I'm thinking of making a double post one. I'm just trying to think of what image from FMA to capture for double posts - any ideas?

If you have others you can think of that would be nice, let me know. - I'm enjoying this smile.gif

Basically it would make things much easier on the mods if you could just insert some standard thing rather than having to come up with an explanation each time. At least for me when I have to deal with correcting people, it's often more efficient in the first pass (first offense) to just use a standard answer with a link to where to get more info. After the first pass (i.e. second offense), an explanation/actual worded post would need to be given to see if it's a genuine mistake or if they're being stupid.
