Default Question about newbies and Info for Fresh Fighters

Is there a way to force these kids to read this shit? Like make it a mandatory prompt that comes up the first few times you ever sign on?

There should be a quiz over it before you can join. Seriously. That's the only way to guarantee that they know the material.

Could probably be the first postboard ever to require a passed quiz to join.

I don't know, I was just sick of hearing true and false stuff about their personal lives. I had to vent.

If you want the Foos to come off as snooty and elitist, then a quiz to join is the way to go.

Ahem....I don't know how many different ways we can say this.

You are in control of what you read. If you see a thread title that looks suspicious, "I love Foo Fighters" or "What does DOA stand for?" I think you have a pretty good idea that it's a thread you want to avoid. No one forces you to reply...have some self control and either don't click or don't respond. It's really quite easy. Generally, we find those kind of posts and get rid of them.

We will not have a test. We will not have a special forum. You just have to deal. Some people have been dealing with it since the TINLTL days...you just move on.

Maybe I should stick this in the Frequent Post Archive...

But what if it's a scandalous story of sex, drugs, and rock n roll?!

I'd stick it in FPA Jilly. If anyone wants to bitch let them do it there.

Newbs. Either shred 'em or forget 'em. Whining is unacceptable.
