    I wanted to read the rules again (these things may change anytime), and I had a hard time finding them. I went to the Home page, and found no link... I eventually found them, but I've been using this forum for over a year now, and I don't expect a newbie to magically stumble on the rules. My, even these "Read the rules !" posters don't link to them !

    How about putting a link to the rules on the Home page ? Like in the Links section (and maybe in red and size 14) [​IMG]

    It's considered common knowledge on a forum to check the "announcements" section first thing, since rules go there among other special notices.

    I think they show up on the sign-up process, but I'm not sure...

    Sure enough, but you're always a newbie at some time, and common knowledge does not always apply...
    GbaTemp is not my first forum, but it is the first Invision-run, and Announcements did not ring a bell to me.

    But since the rules appear when you sign-up, I'll just shut up [​IMG]

    I don't think they do. If they don't then they should be made to show up when you sign up.

    Well, the good thing is that alot of our users take the rules for common sense... ive never looked at them, that i can remember anyway. Alot of those spammers have died down, and those wierd people who came here to insult others.... wonder why?
