    i noticed another person asking 'how do i get an avatar' in the site comments section...

    can we just ban these people imediately? seems to me that if they aren't bright enough to read the FAQ's FIRST, then why should we beleive that they'll ever have anything inteligent to say?

    i'm grouchy, but i think it's a legit point...

    thoughts?

    There are plenty of people who don't ask about avatars who I'd question ever have anything intelligent to say, so not sure banning people simply due to their lack of intelligence/observance is "bannable."

    Perhaps it would be easier to redirect all newly registered members directly to the FAQ page instead. Won't guarantee they'll read it, but it would make it more likely.

    as long as we use equal treatment with anybody complaining about people asking for avatars, i'm ok with it ;)

    btw, how do i get an avatar?

    the avatar-zealot, edesignuk, usually puts a stop to most of these by pointing them to his slightly over the top instructions on how to get/make/update a 'tar. Its even a sticky, thanks to rowerCPU.

    Along with some effective animated artwork... :D

    No one wants to be "edesigned" more than once!
