    This is just a thought so don't flame. I'm also not sure if it should
    be in this area of the forums. But since it's "site chat" then it might be.



    Would it be possible to make the site rules pop up whenever someone
    enters the site?

    For example: Jimmy wants to jailbreak his iPod, so he comes here...
    He then notices that he can't post anything or read much unless he's
    a member. Jimmy signs up and comes into the site. Then, Jimmy
    notices he STILL can't read anything because he hasn't visited the
    site rule threads... So he visits them and then no problems or random
    banning, flamming, etc would overcome him.

    Maybe even a notice almost everywhere so new members can see
    they need to look at the site rules.

    This way there will be no need to flame the new members for
    spamming, posting their websites, asking for illegal things, etc, etc...

    Also this would be preventing an excuse.

    Example : IPTF addict - WTF WHY YOU'Z POST TEH PORNO?!?!?!?
    NEW MEMBER - OHHH, where not allowed to do that here?
    IPTF addict - NO... you already know that when you sign up

    That's a great idea! But I don't know if it's possible.

    I like the examples at the bottom.
    But noobs should know what to post even if they didn't read the rules.
    I mean, why would they ask something so stupid and get flamed for?
    Maybe they're really true noobs.

    I completely disagree with you on this one. It's a good idea and all, although the fact is, people don't want to read rules. They don't want to sit down and read through a whole thread that states rules, so they just skip right over it and get to posting.
