Can we have a sticky thread for basic info on BHW?

    Hey everyone,
    Recently everyone seems to want to upgrade their accounts and hence they post in the lounge asking help. I find it mind boggling that these type of stickies are in the "Forum Suggestions & Feedback section" where basically no newbies visit. Most of them tend to come to the lounge. Perhaps if we could import one of those threads about membership levels and another about how to purchase Jr.VIP, it would reduce a lot of threads like "Hey, I wanna get Jr.VIP". Maybe also include a few pointers so people know what they post, (i.e like telling how BH is different from stealing, how you are not supposed to mention other forums and stuff)?

    Open to suggestions.

    Yeah. Lots of people ask the same questions over and over again.

    If they are serious enough, they will look over the forum I guess.

    Again, you get results which say "yay, I got Jr.VIP" and some asking the same question.

    yeah but theres a dozen answers. And really, if someone can't figure it out, it's not their time to become jr vip.

    Leadership is by example. Why don't you write one?

    Its a good idea.....But you could have a sticky flashing in Neon yellow and somebody would ignore it and ask anyway.

    Let's face it %98 of people who join do not read the huge wall of text called forum rules.
    And they just check the little box and join. Then it takes them forever to see the "Forum Suggestions & Feedback section"
    So yeah RushingWind I agree this is a decent idea. Maybe make a central location for all forum rule outlines.

    Cheers,
    Unclemike

    I would have thought that the "membership" tab in the top menu was clear enough no? I mean damn, we are smart enough to make websites and get them to rank in google, finding how to become Jr VIP on bhw can't be that difficult...

    Yeah...I guess people still won't care to read it.
    Perhaps maybe a check box next to each and every rule that can be clicked after 5 minutes thereby forcing the user to read the rules when he joins? Would take a lot of time but it would be worth it if we can stop having such questions being asked over and over again.
