I get rather frustrated when people come into the Helproom(s) and when stating their problems, do not give anywhere near enough details or correct Titles to their threads. Also those using Yellow envelope without invite, or putting their email addresses in the open forum.
I think it would be a good idea if new members/users of the forum, should not be allowed to publish their problems/ideas/suggestions etc on the forum, until they have read&agreed the Forum Rules.
I agree completely. The forum is a microcosm of society, we have people from all walks of life, of both sexes, and of all ages - the common ground being our interest in computing. Whether or not someone knows how to spell perfectly, or to write perfect prose is immaterial, and I would hate to think that anyone feels inhibited in any way because of a few forum rules about thread titles etc.
If you do this work day in and day out (and many forum members do, thank goodness) there's always the danger of becoming a little intolerant, and it's to be avoided if at all possible. Come one, come all as far as we're concerned, and if the spelling and syntax slips a little, so what?
Likewise the forum rules - they're there, and it's a good idea to read them through, but if there's the occasional slip it isn't the end of the world. If everyone observed all the rules all the time I would feel decidedly superfluous, but thankfully that's never going to happen.
