Really I think it bothers me more then the mods every time I see code threads in the General Discussion forum. Could you guys please set up at least like a two post count requirement before posting there? :roll:

That's not something (I think) that one can enable by default, and I'm not sure something we'd want to anyway. There are lots of mis-filed threads obviously, but there are also cases where a person's first post is in the "Say who you are" thread - we wouldn't want to dissuade people from commenting there.

Fair enough...

How about when posting for the first few times a gentle reminder to ensure that they're posting in the correct forums?

That's a better idea, though I'm positive that's not something phpBB does out of the box.

I think phpBB is rather limited in its capabilities for doing something like this. We could pay for a forum software that does it, but I am certain there is something free out there that can do this.

Of course I am not necessarily suggesting that we switch. Just saying that while this is a good suggestion it is probably a bit of ways off in terms of getting implemented.
