I agree there should be a pop up for new members

or maybe there should be a

I know and understand that the PM limit is 100

and they have to check the box next to that, otherwise they can't register, it's required

I very much doubt that that would work. I mean, whenever I install something it tells me to read the terms and conditions then to check a box like that. I never do, I just click it and install.

See what I mean?

Absolutely right, nobody actually reads that crap.

I would suggest sending an automated "Welcome to VT" email. I would include the main rules from the FAQ and also a statement that certain facilities will become available when you have established your status on the board.

The same thing will no doubt apply, they may not read the email, but all the same I think an email is more likely to be read than a pop up box and is probably easier to implement.

To be honest Nick, If I'm to be taken as an example for the average member, nobody will read that either. If I've just signed up for any website and they send me a 'welcome' email, I just delete it straight away.

Just being blunt...

Pm warning? naah
how about entire site warning, A nice email saying the rules with a title that basicly says that the email will be the only warning that theyll get
then theres no excuse for breaking the rules since they were sent them, and its their fault for not reading them

Maybe there can be a one question quiz to see if they know what the limit afterwards? :S

probably there is a database which the post is run by. in the database are words that, if they are in a message, the message will be deleted. a sort of "pre-moderation", if it were.

There are EASY ways around like that. Such as spacing out words, etc

no, you have to have 100 posts before you can send PM's. Its like that because a high percentage of users have been targeted by people wanting to cam, or perform sexual acts.

This is why i want something like a warning or a pop up, or quiz or whatever, many new members dont know. Hell, maybe when they try to send PM's they get a pop up explaing why. something like "You need 100 posts before you may send PM's. This is because many members where abusing the system by asking for innapropriate things, e.g Camming."

I understand why it is and yes im glad the limit is 100. But i clicked on "private messages" under my name, and it says that have however many i have, out of "1,000 allowed." Did it not change on mine or something like that? And i made sure it said 1000

Always up for a chat or a chat

Here to vent if you ever need it

That's how many can be stored. 1,000 is the limit and then they're deleted from your inbox/outbox for room. It's not a limit.

Or... VT can nominate people for a welcome team, and those in charge would be assigned to be a newbie's "personal aid" for the first month of being new, and there job would be to welcome the newcomer, and send them a PM or VM basically stating the rules and such.

I also think the Pop-up/ sticky would be a good idea.

Oh Jesus no. That sounds like utter hell. Would anyone actually want to do that?

Actually, I would.
It wouldn't be that hard.
All the Admin would have to do is send the welcome person a list of newcomers via email. Then the rest would be in the hands of the Welcoming Committee.

Well it would have to be trusted members that know enough about the site to provide honest and helpful advice, for it to be effective there would have to be loads of them. Considering how many new members there are (rough number... mods?).

I don't see it happening due to a lack of people willing to do it and the general hassle. Personally I can see people getting way ahead of themselves given the chance.

I've been here for a very long time.... and, like I said. People and/or the Admin would nominate trustworthy people. It could be fun, if you made it fun.
