"Why can't I post" threads

We used to have a banner or sticky that explained to new members why they can't post. It looks like that was replaced with the Takata airbag info posts.
Can we get the new member requirements info back?

I was just thinking, would it be possible to somehow force the new member to read something before or right after they sign up?

Hard to make someone read something unless they are forced to.

They'll just scroll past it click "Accept".
Unless we integrate a quiz into it...

I know some download wait pages have a timer and it will actually pause if you are not actively viewing that window.

All this sounds a bit extreme, though... We are not being flooded by these threads on a daily basis to warrant something like that.

This needs to be a banner across the new member forum.

People aren't that smart. You have to smash them in the face with a sledgehammer of knowledge.
