    I was just reading some posts in the modding section and 5 of them in a row got moved from the project section for not following the rules set out in the stickey. So i thought i might start a thread so people can post ideas as to how this problem can be fixed. Also, a stickey states that we should not be updating our thread titles everytime we update our thread, but many people still do it so is it ok or not?

    I moved most of those threads Twernmilt. We could make it so everyone had to apply to post in project logs etc, but that would be way to much work (we aren't paid to moderate these forums)and slow things down.

    If someone can't be bothered to read the 'Read BEFORE posting' sticky we'll just move their thread and they'll need to get on and mod something to get it back over. The rules are currently being rewritten by Macro (I saw a draft yesterday) with more emphasis on what can/can't be posted here etc. Expect these out soon(ish).

    It's about educating people not punishing them (you'll notice all these threads are by newbies). We want bit to be a welcoming place. It's only if they don't take the hint and re-offend time and again that we kick some booty. The increase in numbers of threads incorrectly posted is simply due to the MASSIVE increase in the project logs section's popularity in the last couple of months.

    We can only do so much and the rest is up to the individual. We'll just keep moving the threads. :)

    Oh, yeah, as this isn't a project log I'm moving it to 'Feedback' where it belongs ;)
