Ill start by saying that im not sure this will work with this forum software, but i have seen it elsewere. I know that when the forum was origionaly opened you had to become a registered user before you could post, heck before you could even see and replies to a post. I know you need to be registered to post now but not sure if it still applies to the seing posts part. I am tired of seing some person with 1 post asking a question that has been asked 100+ times before. People that want a simple answer dont bother to read the forums rules. What i am recomending is soemthing that i have seen done on other forums ive used in the past. It alows users to register and view the forums through the normal email verification procedure. However they can not post until approved. This could force them to read before they ask a question for the millionth time.
