Sort of over did the "Rules and Guidelines" thing a bit don't you think? Once in a prominent place perhaps, but in every area??

good grief

It's like driving into a campground and seeing big "Rules and Regulations" signs at every campsite. Sure does make a bad impression. I'm starting to look elseware to "camp".

I couldn't even post until I went to my profile and agreed to the rules.

At least we get to see how long it takes for each and every area to get a new post!

Almost every site that I post on has a TOS agreement.
I moderate on an ATV site and a motorcycle site.
Why is it overkill?

The reason it is overkill is because when I opened the forum section every part (50 something) had the same thing. I realize this is 'your' forum and we visit here for free, but I have been out of grade school for quite a while and this looks like something done by some kid who found out what copy and paste is all about.
If there has been some huge something that has happened to warrant this, then let us know.

This is not about "rules and regulations". Every single web site that has an open forum for posting has a TOS. I can see where the rules being in every forum could be seen as a bit much but this way everyone sees and understands what is expected.
There has been issues in the past where some folks took advantage of some "loopholes" and the Administrators felt it was time for some clarification.
We apologize if the way they were posted offended you or any other member.

I for one don't think it is overkill. People don't read and some if they do won't remember the next day. It is no big deal. I'm a moderator at www.electricalknowledge.com , a forum for professional electricians and we did the same thing that you have done here.
It helped a little but it tends to help eliminate excuses for not following the rules.
Major excuse #1 is, "where does it say that"? Well the moderator can say, check out the sticky note at the top of the page.

It appears that some common sense has set in and the "Rules and Regulations" posts have been cut back to a more reasonable level. Good work admin.

There are alternative ways to give notice.

One is something up top by your login name in bold and <span class="ev_code_RED">red</span> , maybe even larger font &/or underlined .

It's great fun for any newbies to learn the ins and outs of any site.

& I tried some possible code for larger font and for underline, but nada.
