    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
    A note to Newbies - by allenb1963
    AO member FAQ - by Ennis
    Unofficial guide to Ao & netiquette - valhallen
    Icon/Avatar Resource - GreekGoddess
    Tutorials Forum Index - Negative
    Ultimate Newbie FAQ - Ennis
    Tutorial forum collection - Multiple peps

    there ya go - have a wee read through those and it should set you on the right path here at AO - many of the questions you might have after joining will be covered in the above threads.

    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

    p.s.

    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.

    Cheers
