    Default To stop the noobs...

    I was thinking, after seeing the masses of questions in help asking the same thing everytime, that whenever someone joins the site they could be shown like an extra page in the registration process to look at some of the better guides like the guides to actually put cfw on the psp. It should show a drop in questions like "how do I do the haxxxxx?!?!?!?!!!!111112."

    I actually thought of this a while ago but never suggested it... So what do you all think?

    an Annoucement at the top of the forum index would be a better idea...

    Lol, that's why I'm saying that the guides should almost be forced upon them...

    People dont want to search.. They would rather waste someones time , when all they have to do is type what they need in the search box...

    This , is how truly lazy people can be.

    That's the reason why every time I log on the next day there's a new page of questions all asking the same thing...

    lol, they are only wasting their own time, sitting waiting for a reply while the question has been answered already - probly like 10 minutes ago on a thread 2 down from the one they just unnecessarily created.

    I did propose a similar newb herding scheme before, such as restricting them to the tutorial section for a period. You cant apply a rule to new members though,; experienced psp users who join up would get bored of waiting on a time or post limit, they would mark us as elitist and not come back.

    I think what they want some times is they can't understand the tutorial so the ask in thread to get some one explain it to them in a way they can understand.

    Someone should make a dumbed down dumbed down version. When I started I read the tuts and didn't have a problem. Then again when I started we were still putting one stick in and starting the game and then putting the second one in. XD
    Interested in my games or my friends games?
