Welcome Emails with Frequently Asked Questions
I was looking at Trekster's Newbie thread and came up with a thought (it doesn't happen often so hear me out). It's obvious we have a lot of people coming into this forum who have either no idea how or no intention to search the forum before they ask a redundant question about how to softmod, or how to get NSMB running, or any other number of really common questions.
I think Trekster has put together a nice list of quick answers and links to many of the questions we see pop up here multiple times every day. This, in addition to the welcome dialogue put forth in the Introduce Yourself forum, could form the basis for a FAQ that could be incorporated into a welcome email. One that could be automatically sent out once the registration process is complete and has direct links to all the most frequently used and requested guides on the site, coupled with the link to the rules, introductions, etc.
Crap idea? Good idea? What do you all think?
