Pinned Q/A for newbies

Suggesting a pinned topic somewhere which gives some basic information to newbies. I registered over a year ago, so IDK what kind of info the newbies get when registering anymore, and I don’t see anything pertaining to this anywhere on the forum already (or if it is here, it’s not visible enough for someone to see/read it).

Info could include some/all of the following:

  1. How to post topics/how long before I can post
  2. How/why to search
  3. How to PM
  4. How to use tags
  5. What category to post to based on question/comment being submitted

It seems like many newbies are asking very similar questions/hijacking threads/not searching. Perhaps something like this would help mitigate these posts.

Thank you so much this really helps

I think this is a good idea, I have a thread that’s similar to this.

Yeah, I saw this. Yours is geared more toward calculating a lease. My suggestion is geared more toward how to use this site in general.

True, it would be beneficial to have both, how to use the site and understanding leasing 101. 2 Topics for new users to review and agree to before they can post. I don’t know how feasible that is to do but I think it’ll cut down on alot of the threads.
