Meh, I want this Section to just remain a free flowing exchange of idea'* and updates. But your thread does bring up a problem I recognize in the Forum. There is alot of info about sig limits, posting avatars, sig pics, allowable lines of sig, contest rules, etc. But they are scattered. I'm looking into where to best place a new Section that cant be posted in to get it all in one place. It'* on my short list. That isnt short since the expansion.

Put all the info on said topics stickied at the top of the Intro section in one thread titled "Read first" or something like that

Or on first login have it redirect to the Read Me thread.

Those are things I wouldn't consider. One would be a major pain in the azz for the 700-1000 people that login here semi regularly to regularly.

One can't be formatted in without a secondary registration/login sequence, not willing to make it harder than it is.

People wont go where you point them till they need something, and alot of posting members started or participate in the Intro Section. When I have time for it, That thread in Intro will be looked at, any revisions made and it will be copied to a sticky in the Lounge also. SR'* will be asked to point questioning people there by link. thats a final verdict. TY
