Greeting/Intro on the Site (Forums)

  • Well, now and then a new user, trying to post/show some technical data (links, paths, etc.), encounters the output gets changed by the forums' markup.
    I suggest we have an intro for a new user - when he/she first enters the forums - where to give a brief introduction on how to format their input.
    There should be mentioned that some characters are reserved, which ones, and how to escape to show certain actual sequences: like "use backticks to show paths/links containing underscores" etc.
    It's better if it'll show up only once - when the user first enters the forums (or starts his/her first thread). Otherwise it could be a preset pop-up or something - with an option to "not show it any more".

  • Also, I'd suggest the user will be advised to always mention certain technical specs when posting about a problem with their browser.

  • +1 for both, but this forum has more important things that have to be done first. Is someone at Opera responsible for the forum?

  • Leo, here.

    @leocg:

    Kinda hard to read a text without paragraphs.

    So this should be added too.
    I bet the user did try linebreaking. But it's not clear to new users that this forum has it similar to that on Wiki.
