There is no need for that, the rules are in plain sight and clear. As well you agree to them the moment you sign up.

I don't share that point of view - it's not a bad idea at all. Every driver knows the speed limits on given types of roads and yet they still have signs signifying when they can speed up and when they have to slow down. A simple pop-up would be a reminder "hello, you've just logged onto a civilized site so act properly", nothing more.

I was a bit harsh, but still there really isn't a need to have the rules posted everywhere, they are right there in plain sight if you need a refresher.

It's not a bad idea *provided* that at the end of the pop-up there will be a check-box (alot of scrolling) with a random question from the rules set attached to it. If the answer is correct and the check-box is checked, the pop-up would no longer appear, assuming that you've read the rules. Otherwise the pop-up would haunt you on every log on, literally forcing you to read it.

The question has to be random though, otherwise it'll be another "OK, moving on" matter.

Seeing the current hacking scene, and the recent shift of focus, I don't believe it will be important in the future.

Besides Popups are frowned upon and most people will ignore them, wrongly perceiving them as advertisements

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
