    as in using the existing tutorials, and maybe somehow they have to stay there for like 15 minutes or something. as the bare minimum. or maybe you could have to make like 5 post in the tutorials before anywhere else, but that might make them post random off topic questions in there... oh well...

    PS: ive heard the mods say it a few times, what is the reading room?

    My take is that they restrict someones privileges from posting so that they can only read and follow links for X time period.

    I have to side with the admins and mods here on this one I know there are no stupid questions only stupid people. But I am new to this forum and I have read and read and read some more and noticed there is like 20 threads for the same questions. It tends to get old seeing people ask the sam questions and throws it up to being a noob. On the bright side it has forced me to learn the info since I read it so many times. I admit sometimes I will ask a question that was covered and I just didnt see it but I also try to give input to help others. I have not modded my wii yet so I am not a lot of help but I do try to help and answer questions if I know the answer usually cause I read about it.

    I think its cool people got things to say on this subject, but please stop -,_-,

    i mean you have people saying, those people are wrong, but still not searching for their answers ThetaSigma

    like the Reading Room, thing i outlined in news update, with why we do it, what it means and all that =\

    what it comes down to though is, i come here, and look at my PM's *somehow i still get a lot of questions, though i refuse to help them out!* and a lot of MSN convos, from people whom think that i need to help them *i sure as **** dont* a few of the members, and random lurkers come here, but what it comes down to is.... I'm not needed, reguardless *not saying i wanted to be needed/wanted, just a thing you notice*

    I quit, no one but 5 people noticed, and 3 posted simple coments.... =\
    I had to inform modderman personally, he was indifferent
    I told Rossy, i had no intrest, in reclamming my job
    same for As =P
    I made this topic shortly after, due to MSN/AIM issues -.-
    very few cared....
    Rockman posts and now its a important topic *i guess that makes rockman important XD*

    when you see this, and simply...
    every question gets answered *6/10 are incorrect/not complete, is unimportant XD*
    No one mentions me or even references =P
    the newer people, generally dont care about what i did or anything

    and above all, this is the true Color of the forum/people/community if you want to know it =\

    I wrote 18 guides, and just about every news forum, telling people whats new, or things i think people need to be reminded of, so people knew that they mattered =\, i made 2 Contests *MK, and Holiday*, and came up with all the prizes, and all of that jazz... i personally helped 1,000's of people, and made 5,453 posts where atleast 5,350 are support/help in some way! and i gained a few thanks.... in the time i have left, i have gained 7 thank yous

    Emperor of Canada, wrote 1 guide that he summed up a better guide on GBA temp, and removed most of what it said *it was about all kinds of other things too =P* this person basicly left shortly after joining, and made at most 100 posts of support, that are made VERY randomly from november onward

    and in at MOST 1 month, he will have more thank yous than me...


    Need i say more?

    So.....

    Maybe we should let this thread die, but the newbie restrictions seem like the logical path. The community is growing, Google probably brings 100+ people here daily, and I'm guessing that each and every new member is signing up just to get the same question answered.

    I say:
    Restrictions on people whose accounts are less than 5 days old...
    -They're only allowed to post/read in "noob" forum
    -Before being allowed to post they must read any guides and stickies in said "noob" forum
    -Spammers instantly banned
    -Multiple threads of same or similar topic locked/deleted with message sent to user on where to find the answer to their question

    Now I feel important.

    thread/idea's should die, i can counter them all -,_-, no matter what you say i can counter it

    they wait 5 days or leave
    you can just click, and leave, many forums tell me to read something, i do that and it works perfectly... you could make a test, but people will just leave
    Cant, actually code it that way, and Reading Room is for that, but those people will leave once their helped, or insulted
    people will leave, also since theres so much over flow of people telling others to search, that unless you google search it, you wont find the answer easily, and making a code like that, will in the future hinder people trying to get help

    anything you add, is illogical, if people are Hulted or stoped, they leave, and if you make people do things, theres no proof that they did them, take school as a example, you can take a test, or do a class, but Completeing it with any grade, means you just completed it, that doesnt mean you learned something, doesnt mean you did anything, just means youre done with it

    same with this forum, you can fake the system, but in the end, you cant fix what its like now, do what i did and accept it as is, or walk away, i like the latter, but thats just me

    I'm pretty sure it would be difficult to code/restructure the forums to be like I said. But I wouldn't rely solely on the server to watch people anyway. Well there'd probably have to be a LOT more staff to get my idea off the ground.

    So I guess it's out.

    But if somebody has a question they want answered... I'm betting that they'd sign up, look thru the guides and post in the noob forum. If they weren't serious, I'm sure they'd forget after 5 days and we prolly won't ever see them again.

    And that's why I still have confidence in my plan.
