My proposal: A method of making sure that users are redirected to new important announcements as well as new rules.
Why?: Not everybody reads the important announcements; sometimes they are missed (it isn't too hard to accidentally miss them ^^) or directly ignored as just being "an announcement". The same might go for rule changes. No longer would "Sorry, I didn't know the rule had changed" be an excuse.
Tools needed: This mod here.
It essentially makes you read a post before you can continue to use the forums. Once read, you can get on with your business and never be made to read that specific post again. It works off of user groups, so the moderators and up who will know of the announcements/rule changes from behind the scenes will not be subject to the mod. It's possible to set it between forums as well, so only those who tread into the animé section would have to read a new rule that applies to that section only.
