    We had talked about requiring a first post in specific area. With the problems Otto has had the past year, we were not able to do it.

    Fine, be like that. I really didn't want it anyway.

    If that is the case isn't there a way to control the brevity of a post? It seems like when I have tried to answer a question with merely a: "Yes", I get a software message saying that the post was too short or did not contain enough charecters.

    No, not really. Post must me at least 3 characters long, if the response is outside of a quote. A quoted passage is not considered a post, if non-quoted sentences words are not also present.

    This page has a lot of information to help a new member know general procedures on the Forum:

    World War II Forums - FAQ: Board FAQ

    Perhaps when someone welcomes a new member it would be a good idea to send them this link!

    The FAQ link has actually been between the Tournaments and Gallery link at the top of the Home page for a long time, so I can't take any credit!
