    Could someone sticky and PM these users, there seems to be an increasing amount of these threads, I mean there is one literally four(?) threads below this that was started hours earlier. It seems that people are no longer reading the rules...funny how that is?

    If they don't read the rules, what makes you think they'll read the sticky?

    It would be at the top? Someone could label it "trying to sell things" or something that would attract people? Or at least a way to show the marketplace, but then for users that are not eligible have them go to a screen explaining their ineligibility, that might not be possible though?

    The problem is that almost all these posts were not made in the Site and Forum Feedback section, but moved here. So making a sticky in here would not help.

    Maybe you could start PMing the new members that post threads you think are duplicates to tell them what they should do, since it seems to bother you so much.

    iSee...that changes things a tad...

    I somehow think that would somehow crossover into moderating-esk duties, but if it's true that threads are being moved here, I understand a tad bit more.

    Maybe have a PM sent to members as soon as they sign up and call it:

    IN ORDER TO SELL ITEMS ON MACRUMORS.com..... or something of the like. Doesn't mean they will read it but...

    If I recall, the first thing that MR says before you click the register is a big banner that says if it's your first time, read the FAQ.

    Yeah, but that assumes people read.

    They don't have time to read that... too big of a hurry to post about the virus their Mac has and what AV they need

    It isn't the lack of ability to read, but the reading comprehension part of the MacRumors test that these people fail.

    That, and they are lazier than crap. :cool:

    Maybe when they were new they read the rules, the FAQs and stickies before posting? You know, like a conscientious person would?

    I didn't.

    I read FAQ when I thought of a question about the site and usually found answers but I also probably asked about some things in the forums as well.

    The first time I read the rules properly was when I was invited to become a moderator.
