> To "force" new members to read the Warring 101 and Forum Rules, we could have a verification word. Something on the middle of the text that should be pointed out as a proof of read.

> How about that?

| Then people would just search for *'s. o.o
It's a good idea but I don't think it would work.

| Id say make it more like they have to explain something from the topic
That would be too easy to find (but if you dont know, how could you know theres a * in the end )
Hope you understood me lol

Lol actually I don't, sorry.

Well hope Arthur does

>Have you read the Forum Guidelines? Can you provide the highlighted 'proof of read' word?
> Notice that it doesn't say "Provide the word marked with '*'".

| Mm but still, they could just scroll down it till they see it. And if you don't have it marked then how will they know it's the word?
Sorry, I'm not against the idea or anything, I just don't think it would work. Worth a shot though, I guess.

|> Hmm... Idk. I thought it was a good idea too, but now it seems it won't work|
|Posted by: animal magik May 23 2009, 08:05 PM|
|Why don't we just tell them to summarise it?|
|Posted by: Sick Mate 9 May 26 2009, 04:37 AM|
| or just have somewhere in the text
Proof of Read word: and then just put the word here, then keep going with the text
|Posted by: animal magik May 26 2009, 06:20 AM|
|Again, as said above, they could just search for that/control+f that.|

| :S I thought I posted here, maybe my internet lagged.
I like this idea, 100% support, I have seen many clans doing this and its very efficient. I think we should make a code for it when they copy it or something.

| It could be a complicated string of numbers, and they could be spread throughout the thing.
Although someone could just look at an application made that week and copy that person's lol

|> Unfortunately we can't have a "Enter Confirmation Code" on the application That would rock.|
|Posted by: Kerkennah May 27 2009, 04:19 PM|
|I think we should go ahead with the idea you have right now, I think it will work wonderfully The * is kinda of small so they will have to read the whole thing to find the right word|
|Posted by: animal magik May 27 2009, 06:24 PM|
|Not if they used control+f.|
|Posted by: Kerkennah May 27 2009, 07:39 PM|
| Well they wouldn't know they are looking for it, only after they read the whole page, because at the bottom it would say you have to look for *.
Unless they just skip to the bottom
Can you disable Control F on the page arthur? I know some websites won't let you use control C or copy
|Posted by: K Arthur90 May 27 2009, 07:45 PM|
|> Yes, I can. I just don't know if we still got space for another mod|
|Posted by: animal magik May 27 2009, 08:43 PM|
If you can disable control+f just on that page, then it should work, and we can try it out. =D
