    Registration for the forums...

    Have new users walk through at least a few stickies before finalizing their registration to the forums.

    If users won't read a sticky that says "--- Read before creating new threads ---", what more can be done, really? It would seem like a case where you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. If a post in particular prompted this sentiment, please let us know by reporting it and we'll check it out. That's what we're here for.

    "More stickies" have never solved anything in any forum ever.

    To a degree it works in highly specialised sections like a modding forum where folks go with a willingness to absorb information.

    In a normal forum, forget about the 2nd or 3rd sticky from the top down. With luck, one is being read. Sometimes.


    As for making it a registration requirement - do you read every EULA and license agreement before you click accept...?

    Can I be honest here and say of all the years I've been here, I don't remember ever reading any of the sticky threads? Maybe I clicked on a few during my moderator days as it was part of my duties or if one was a poll or something interesting, but aside from that... no clue what is written in them. This also includes the dev diary topics which I think are also stickied.

    I hate stickies. Always on the lookout to remove outdated ones.

    Roland, you are an outdated sticky. Just saying. =)
