Fourth, if you do not submit your thread in the correct format (i.e., signing your thread, posting your report above your signature, etc.) it can be deleted on the spot.
This seems a bit heavy handed! If we're aiming to help newbies, why do we have rules that may cause their questions to be removed? Better to correct their errors and help them learn...! --HappyDog 12:58, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
- It does not matter how new the users are, we give them clear guidelines as to how to post, what to post, and where to post. We receive around 100 posts a week, and cannot offer optimum help to those who do not follow these guidelines, or any help at all in some cases. Their messages spam the Support Desk, spam we do not need, as we have enough trouble with having users to archive and resolve messages for us. -PatPeter MediaWiki Support Team 05:34, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
