Can't we stop flagging new members?

It would be great if the first and only the first time à new member post something duplicate or commons thing that we flag, just send a PM to the new member to tell once the forum guidelines and the rules of our community (don’t post duplicates, don’t ask when next update is out etc…)

It’s something that i haven’t seen in the general community guidelines (discourse, not a topic about it) and sometimes instead of flagging, just PM the member with a link to Misha’s “To Forum Minions” topic…?


Please do feel free to PM them. In fact, I would hope many regulars do so anyway. But you do also need to flag them. A new pilot doesn’t get a free pass to take off from the taxiway.
