Lock the Welcome & FAQ's Forum

2008-02-04, 21:52 PM
From what I can see there, virtually every post gets moved to another forum.
Just close/lock it and only let Mods and Admins post in there, we really don't want to say 'hello' to every Tom, **bleep** and Harry who happen to post there.

I agree with RBS,
 
or
 
hows about moving this thread in there and leaving it as the only contributable thread? (not my idea, I believe someone did mention this before the opening of the forum, but couldn't find the post).

Hello,
 
Perhaps it would make sense to only allow forum staff to create message threads, but allow any level of forum member to reply to a thread (assuming, of course, it isn't locked).
 
Regards,

Well that wouldnt work! What if somebody had some questions to ask other forum members and they could not open thier own thread.
 
I myself (dietpepsiaddict) have posted multiple threads within the two weeks I have been on this forum.
 
It would be a bit odd seeing somebody asking for some other part number or something  in a graphics card or another thread!
 
 Were all glad you made a suggestion butI just dont think that would work.:smileyhappy:
 
No hard feelings

RIBS wasn't suggesting that users not be able to open new threads in the forum in general.  He was just suggesting that the Welcome & FAQ board be closed to posting because it's intended to be informational in nature.
 
Unfortunately, since it's the first one in the list of board, questions that should be posted in one of the technical boards get posted there in error.  Then we have to move those threads to the proper board.  For example, someone might post a question about a T in the Welcome & FAQ board instead of the T Series board by mistake.
 
That make sense?

Is it not maybe worth at least stickying the FAQs thread up with the rules and welcome threads, they seem to be going the way of the Titanic at the moment?
