    ^exactly what I meant!...Maybe when one gets an e-mail in his inbox about completion of registration,a hyperlink can be added to it asking him\her to visit that link before starting!

    Just like people accept the terms and conditions for registering without even reading it, they'll ignore this link or message and start posting.

    It should come from inside when someone does something on the forum. All mods/system can do is keep the members reminding that there are certain best practices which should be followed. But still you can't assure one would follow it.

    Good guide lines but many of them never read it.

    @aryan why don't you make a few more moderators sumit praful etc etc are always online they can do the first level moderation of sweeping the threads

    In that case, I'm also always online!
    Jokes apart, I also feel that this should come up as a Welcome message as soon as a new member registers.

    some i could think of:
    1. implement 'auto-merge' of consecutive posts. forum designer can make this work. so less preaching. thinkdigit has similar style/working as xBhp and has automerge.
    2. you mentioned 'CAPS' but not bold. a fully bolded post is also not that great to read. this can be used in ICE cases only or my mods. (i have seen a guy going all bold on his posts couple of years back. wonder who??!! ... jokes apart, i have seen some posts in recent times too).
    3. if you are giving infractions, then increasing it to 5-10 would be great. earlier it was 3 i guess. thats a quick exit for some!

    I have broken rules number 1 & 2 in the past...

    Anyways, I will 'tRy' to follow these rules, to the best extent remember-able.

    Please allow upto 4 smileys, I think it's an expression of the human mind. Why suffocate it?

    Hopefully, flaming should not be allowed in the forum. But I've witness this, and been flamed myself too.

    Its all about monitoring and teaching users/members the correct way to particiapte in forums.Once most of the members are following the guidelines as suggested by you , monitoring will be very less.Someone has to take the onus of putting things on track 'now' so that these don't happen in the future.

    Very Well Said my dear freind!
    Aryan Da,to be honest,we also do the same when we register some where!
    I just visited Team-Bhp a couple of minutes back and on the head of every forum this is there and they do not allow anyone to post until they are thourough with what have to post and how do they have to post we can incluse this as in the Approval process, as soon as you approve an intro,Copy paste it there!

    I think it is also necessary to mention that we are allowed upto 100 photographs/post. I know that most of us do not post so many photographs at one go. But I had trouble today posting the Lyon Motorcycle Stunt show thread since I had gone beyond the allotted number of photographs.

    For information's sake.
