IFC Requirements

Hey IFC,

Just thought of something, what if upon making an IFC account, you had to either read all the intros tell you how to use the community what different topics are for etc or even a little test after so you have to make a topic but search to ensure its not duplicate and make an event in the right place but obviously everybody couldnt see you doing it it would just be an entry thing thats private.

  • I like it
  • It could work
  • No, i don’t like this idea

I don’t see this working sorry, here is why there is a number of users who just use the forum for support purposes and what if someone doesn’t want to use the IFC for events why should they have to make events I feel it is just too complicated for a user just trying to find out how to solve a issue they are having
