I have noticed this section flooded with hints, tips, tricks, and other random information provided by users to the Newcomers. Everything that is really important is presently put in the stickies. This forum is for Newcomers to come and ask the questions that used to be considered 'spam' in the S&S section (which is why there is no AP here). Sadly, I see more little guides in here than actual questions from newcomers, which is a bit overwhelming for someone to have to go through and read.

For now, there isn't a rule that *only* newcomers (and oldies that might have a silly question) can post here, but if all these duplicates of guides keep popping up, it might become a rule. We really appreciate that you're trying to help, but I think it might be more confusing than anything. If you have a suggestion as to another guide that we need stickied, feel free to let us know.

Thanks!

Neato! Hopefully now people can stop posting

their guide
on how to be successful on AG. Seems like there's a bunch of little Kevin Trudeau's running around!

The only guide I had created for new comers was the guide to using BB code and really that's a guide that anyone could use,but it was made before the newcomers section existed,but staying on topic,it is true that alot of guides are being created that are unnecessary.I am glad you made this thread.Now if only we could do something about all of the generic RPG games in the forum games section.

I predicted this all would happen with the guides. I remember when there was only one thread on here and it was almost immediately locked up and I was thinking to myself "this is going to be trouble."

I even wrote my own thread about not overdoing everything and it seems like people didn't pay close attention to it (I wrote it before everything got out of hand, I feel like some sort of forum prophet.)

Anyways, I hope this thread gets everybody's attention and people actually take to heart the message being said here. For those who would like a deeper explanation then my thread is here.

There is a mega thread in here that should be stickied. It contains valuable information that was made by both moderators and normal users and should give newcomers all the information they need.
