As we all know that a large number of questions asked here would have been never been posted if the poster had searched the board before posting a question. So I came up with a list of most frequently asked questions in each category. Please add any topics which you think will fit in this category.

This is what I have in mind. For a newly registered member we will direct him to the page with the FAQ's for the first 10 posts ( new posts only, feedback posts does not count). If he does not find what he is looking for in the FAQ page, then he will be allowed to post. I guess 10 posts is a good number for the person to understand and follow the rules of the forum.

Please feel free to share your ideas.
