Is there a way to clearly link the rules topic or a "tutorial" to new members?

Idk who to ask this to, but as the title implies, I think it would be good if new members clearly got rules like double posting explained to them before getting hit with a flag. It creates a very negative impression of the Boards for what is a good rule, if no explanation is given. So, what measures are in place now? I for one have forgotten what it was like first joining but I do remember getting flagged and not knowing what I did wrong and from what I have heard recently suspect it hasn’t changed has it?

Again, thank you to the staff for keeping The Boards a nice place to talk and nerd out, we’re very grateful to you for volunteering and I hope this is heard.

i think @Racie02 made a ‘how to’ topic - we could do a thing where we link in a Welcome to the Boards post?

There’s an automatic welcome message that discobot sends to new arrivals. Perhaps the rules on double posting amd other info could be added to that

New members must be mercilessly hazed by draconic means.

Wait, double posting is against the rules?
