Locking a new users post sounds okay to me, I'll try and remember to start doing it
I've been changing the titles quite a bit lately, though it sometimes takes a while to figure out what they are asking lol.
I used to just tell them to use code tags but lately I'm a little more considerate and if possible add the code tags for them.
I noticed metulburr had put the link to the new user's post in his signature and thought that was a great idea for easily pointing them there so I copied it
Maybe after locking the post we should put a generic welcome to the forum, please read the new users link in my signature type of thing that we could come up with between us.
Due to the reasons discussed here
we will be moving to python-forum.io/
on October 1 2016
This forum will be locked down and no one will be able to post/edit/create threads, etc. here from thereafter. Please create an account at the new site to continue discussion.
