    With the large amount of new people coming in here, and the ever groing "read the stickies" replies they get, maybe we should have a thread at the very top that says something like, "ATTENTION: READ BEFORE POSTING!" Since we don't have something like that at the top (something direct and in caps, because people are simple minded for the most part) we will continue to get the same old threads over and over again. If there is a thread like that with a disclaimer stating that threads with very general questions which have been answered will be locked, maybe it will prevent some of the threads from popping up all the time.

    And maybe we should incorporate all the links to all the stickies into that thread, as a way of making sure that they are read one way or another.

    Maybe force the new user to scroll through the newb thread before entering for the 1st time. Won't ensure they will read it but more a of a chance than not putting it right in front of them.

    That or maybe make the font like 18 with red letters. You know to make it obvious that they should read it 1st because it's not clear enough as is.

    We could cut down on the number of stupid replies so there isn't so much shit to wade through, you know like replying "situps" to someone want to lose ab fat.

    Good thinking... if something is explained in the newb thread put 1 reply "read newb thread" then lock it.... maybe people will get the hint.

    I think it's a fair idea. I don't have time to work on the idea at the moment but I'll see what we can come up with.

    I say we make a "serious discussion" forum, at the top, above the training logs forum, where we don't allow stupid shit.

    This main forum could then stay the way it is. Hell I still enjoy reading the dumbass threads sometimes, like that punchuintheeye sex muscles thread. :mamoru:

    Posts can be loosely related to F&N but still be n00bish or non-hardcore in nature... :dunno:

    you should get people to send a "dumb deposit" via paypal and everytime they post something stupid take out 50 cents :o

    the balance leftover can only be returned after 1 month of 0 deductions.

    I do laugh when I read suggestions like this though. Yes, it gets out of hand but it's usually in fun. I mean, if you go to a gym every guy in there is harrassing(sp?) his buddys. For example, I think grouch is a tool, but I wouldn't let him get eaten by a bunch of fattys at feeding time, and I WOULD in fact piss on his gums if his teeth were on fire.

    I am not sure why you laugh. I know alot of it is in good fun and I enjoy reading most of it. Then again there are massive flame wars sometimes just are annoying and find their way into good threads and ruin them.
