New here? Then read this!!!!
OK have seen alot of people as always going "Read the FAQ" but it was pointed out that it is not the easiest thing to find so here is a list of some of threads etc that maybe of help before posting to ensure you get the best response.
The site FAQ FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions

thanks MsM - hopefully if anyone joins and takes the time to read through even a few of those not only will the boards not have as many of the same questions popping up time and time again - also the newbies will find their first wee while at AO more enjoyable and the members more receptive

About time this issue was finally brang to light though..
When i first started here i was told to read the FAQ. And after searching and searching i finally found it..
I wish that this Thread was around when i started here, it woulda made things a whole lot better..
(For me that is).
Anyhow thanks Val for this very important subject..
Hopefully it will help the n00bies here, and stop those repetitive questions popping up day in and day out..
Me quietly hands Val my 5 cents for this rant.

May I just interject one small notion? COMMON SENCE!! there....thats what Newbies need most of imo.
