I think that a link to the PEELers FAQ should be included within the FAQ, or possibly a [clear] link to the FAQ when you register, to save having to post it every time a n00b starts spamming or quadruple posting etc. In theory, they would read the FAQ and that problem would never exist.

Many PEELers - myself included - have suggested that already.
The theory however is predictable to fail, because how many people really read the Rules, Policies, and Disclaimers before they hit the agree button?

Nearly no one.

It would be the same with a link included in the registration mail. All you are looking for in that mail is your passowrd to start, and not the rules. At least I can see that most newbs do it that way.
I didn't read them for instance, and was lucky that my behaviour basicly fitted them from the start on.

Sure, you can suggest what you want. But it won't be established.

Why should PEEL get that implemented when there are already systems running that do that job perfectly? I'm talking about Instant Messengers, like AIM, ICQ, MSNmessenger...

You see that to code PM'ing would be a big thing to do. There would be the task to implement a whole new database, merging it into people's profiles. Coding new cgi's for that and much, much more. It's simply too much work to do and using the existing systems is easier.

Doesn't some forum like vBulletin have private messages?

Sure, do vBulletin boards (and many more boards) have that implemented, but the code PEEL uses is from early 2000 or even older. That's why it isn't an option here.

Is it possible to change it?

What? The whole message board engine? Well no.
Ok it would be possible, but I guess that it is only with a complete new start of PEEL, deleting all data and starting ove with a new board system.
And that isn't going to happen.

In short: Never change a running system!

Or, for those people that grew up in the (real) country: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

In the profile section, it says "Allow Bulletin Board Administrators and Moderators To Send You Email Notices?" What would they email me about?

Email them and give them a threat. In other words, no way at all.

If you'd have done something too far over the top, they'd warn you per mail, before banning, I guess.

I have one question... When do you stopped being classified as a n00b?

Well, there isn't really a rule saying when.

You stop being classified as a n00b when you stop feeling like one. And by feeling, acting is mostly meant.

Sometimes even I feel like a newb, and there are people here that would agree that I really am. Some other however don't thinks so.

Am I the only one here? I feel like I am spamming...

Some people consider it by date, others by post count, but most consider a "n00b" by their attitude, regularity, if they fit in or how they post. There's no official definition.

hey... you're not GFF... Ah! Help! you are messing with my mind!

And to not make a pointless post, why isn't the PEELers FAQ used as the official FAQ? It contains all the details, as well as more. It's also more aesthitically pleasing.

Oh, and:

@Futurama Crazy : You guessed right!  tongue

@Krokei: The PEELers' FAQ isn't considered as official since it isn't anyting other than the comprehension on the "Helping the newbs thread.
The real FAQ covers questions about how to cope with the Ultimate Bulletin Boards software, its code and behaviour.

The rules admins and moderators developed can be found in the Information Booth, mainly in therules of the road thread, but also many other threads made in this section of PEEL.

You see that aslate's PEELers' FAQ (the one I refer to) is just a comprehension of these all. Still it can't hurt to take a look on the real/official things.

The Disclaimer you agreed to while signing up is also part of it.

Try changing your profile (Or going to that section), as it will ask you to login.

I'm open. But I'm not into that kind of stuff, thank you. Michael Jackson obviously isn't either, so don't go bother him. So, Krokei, go do stuff.

Also, stop the stupid posts that are random and don't are directed at a comment not intended to you. Futurama Crazy, I'm not sure if that was spam, post-jacking, or if you really thought GFF made things alot easier. If it was the either of the first two...SPAM! Spam I say! Spam everywhere! It's covering me! I must escape from the spam! Too much spam!

If you're spamming for rank, don't bother. Post counts have been reset and will be again if neccessary.

Also, you'll be labelled as a spammer, that will take ages to work off.

I've hardly seen you. High postcount != spammer, can just be an active PEELer.
