Why is it that most people skip reading these things.
Here at Central for example, there is a huge notice stating that you have to subscribe to download plugins. Members also receive a pm when they first join stating the same thing. It amazes me that people don't see these things.

It doesn't happen just here. I have quite a few forums that I use the Forum Rules feature to make a colorful announcement to indicate what can and cannot be done in a particular forum. Yet people still ask stuff that has already been answered for them.
When i make an important thread that members need to read, I either make it as an announcement or sticky it. Still, the same thing happens.

HELLO PEOPLE...why do you think at the top of the forum it says "Announcements" or "Important Threads"??? It says that for a reason!

Sorry for venting, but it's right at the top of my list of pet peeves. Tongue
Hehe, you are completely right about that.
