Is it necessary to tell newbies about GUIDELINES?
December 8, 2017 8:21am CST
Whenever a newbie comes here I think he reads all the rules and everything about the sites then is it necessary that every time we give a link to the post and ask him to read it. Is it not rude? And it's more rude when the newbie doesn't ask it from the people. I never do that but there are people who always do that. What do you do on their discussions?

I think it is necessary. Many have proven over and over they don't read the guidelines when they join here. Of course, there's a nice way to do things and a not nice way. Merely suggesting they read them is helpful and not rude, I don't think. Some don't know where to find them so it's helping them. I have been thanked for giving newbies that information many times. =)
Most of the newbies don't bother to read the guidelines. It's rare to see a newbie who does. I don't find it rude when old members would remind them of reading the guidelines. It only means odd member want them here and care that they do stay and to get their accounts deleted by the admin. I usually welcome the newbies first and tell them to read the guidelines just in case they missed it.
