Is it possible to code a notice for new members that pops up when they create their first thread that highlights the major help threads (Ask a Question, Ask a Tailor, Do you need help with your love life call Gunga Jin, etc) before they decide to continue starting the thread? A lot of new threads seem to fall into these categories.

 

I know the banner thing above the forum mentions these threads, but we still seem to get a lot of the same question threads.
 

There is a welcome PM that goes out to new members that mentions the usual quick questions threads. Maybe some more should be added, but people do seem to read the PM and use the threads more than they probably would.

Are we doing video ads now? I just had one auto-play upon visiting the site. I don't ad-block SF because I like you guys and want to support the site anyway I can, but ads like that are all kinds of annoying.

Somebody else had that problem. I think it would be helpful to say which ad it's exactly (i.e. product/company). For the time being I'd just block it.

If you guys are going to go down this route, at least follow it up with an ad for Lender's bagels.

Man, I could have used THAT reminder today. I still have smoked salmon in the fridge that isn't going to eat itself.

It definitely directed me to the right place when I first joined.

Of course not, Ed. I would never play golf with FS.

But if it did, would you kindly take a video and post?

Had another auto-play video ad just now. Same product.

If it helps, I am running the latest version of Chrome.

Is there a reason that for the past 24ish hours I couldn't read my PMs, post, thumbs-up anything etc?
