effectivity of !! READ BEFORE POSTING !! threads
I know a lot of regulars on the programming boards get irritated when the same damn questions come up everytime, when the answer is sitting right there in the FAQ, or in a previous thread (ie use the GOD DAMN SEARCH FUNCTION).
Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on a better way of getting people to read the FAQ, guidelines, etc...before posting their question.
One option could be forcing people to read them when they register their nickname, although I don't know how this could be achieved, reasonably.
Bah, theres probably not a more effective way, oh well. Would make things better, and have more challenging questions on the boards, but I guess its just not plausible. :P
Note: I'm speaking more in general terms, ie all forums throughout the internet.
