[GcA]EAQ

    Recently i have answered a lot of questions regarding simple things like;
    • "How do I craft XXX?" - It's ridiculous how many can't use NEI
    • "How do I make an enderchest private?"
    • "How do I get membership?"
    so I thought it would make things much easier if we made like some kind of EAQ, that newly whitelisted members should read (Like with the rules) before joining the server. I think this would decrease the amount of simple questions on the server.

    That doesn't contain many of answers like these, I can't refer to these when talking to people in chat.

    The problem with that would be that they wouldn't read it. I didn't even know there was a Godcraft Wikia, and I don't see a need for it either. In my opinion Wikia is filled with ads everywhere, which is annoying. My idea was that we could have an official EAQ that must be read by new members when applying, as like the members must read the rules.

    wikia is the first place dumping ground for much of the server wiki information before it get added to the Godcraft wiki. Adding that EAQ will also not help at all as the rules state what items are banned yet people still ask why they cant create certain items.

    when it comes down to it people don't read. they just ask in chat in the hope that people will answer.

    Like?
    Not if they would have to read it before joining the server, similar to the rules.

    That why Godcraft made use of policy questions.

    This thread would make much more sense if it got attention from an admin/moderator.

    Most of these questions can be answered by spending 5 minutes reading the wiki

    Which most people apparently don't do.

    the mods will be watching BUT their lack of involvement in this should be a sign to you to drop this. the changes will be made to the wiki in time and the questions will receive the normal answers of RTW/RTF

    When someone is accepted to the server they get a like to the guides and wiki's in the acceptance:
    ---
    Make sure you've read the GC-A Server Rules and Guides.
    ---
    Make sure you watch How to Protect Yourself! Video or else!
    If they choose not to read and or watch them i's not our problem. ​

    I use a lot of time getting distracted from what I was doing, because of questions that I politely answer. The most frequently asked questions were regarding mods and how they work. If joining the server would include reading an EAQ I think this problem won't be as bad as it currently is.
    Of course if this thread can't get any support from you moderators this suggestion is irrelevant.

    I guess it is up to the admin's decision.
