    Lightbulb New user page???

    I think it might be a good idea to put a new user page into the forum that way people can look at maybe a point and achievements system
    also basic questions and the rulebook

    We do have the "Gamesforum Rules" section, which is right above the feedback/suggestions area. Within that section (which is also linked helpfully in my signature) lie the rules of the forum.

    I'm indifferent to points/achievement systems. They don't seem that useful.

    Such as the one at the top of the forum, nestled between "Private Messages" and "Calendar" titled "FAQ"? (www.gamesforum.com/faq.php)

    but if it's all in one page then people will be able to get to use the site straight away

    Well the FAQ works as a hub to all of the "newbie" questions people may have. But having it set as a portal page (something that would show up when they log onto the site) would be more of an imposition to the greater number of users who already have a handle on it.

    There is also the (albeit old) "good user guide" in the same section as the rules, which features helpful tips on how to be a good part of the community and whatnot.

    Though overall, the main problem with condensing all of the help aspects to a single page is that admin would need to do it.

    Admin might be able to change it so that registration redirects you to the FAQ or such n' such

    That's something that should be easily doable, yes.

    Admin appeared a while ago and updated it, and started working on a few new projects around the website, but he's not been on in a while, so I doubt they're still in the works unfortunately.
