    Wouldn’t it be a lot easier on everybody, if the Forum Post Page automatically reminds users with a prompt to check their “Personal Details” with a link or “Build signature” with a link and edit the required fields before allowing them to post?


    Many new users cannot find this Forum Policy requirement (which is EXCELLENT) very easily. Even those who are not so new do not often provide that information and a lot of Moderator time is seen spent on this type of reminders.

    Similarly, many Laptop troubleshoot requests are posted on this Forum.

    Making such changes to the Forum Webpage is not a hard thing to do in my opinion.

    I hear the song loud and clear by trying to be part of the choir. It is the audience out there who seem to be oblivious to all of the above. They are mainly focused on their computer issues and unaware of the Forum Policy which is good for them and good for all who are using this great site. Thank you for reading.
