I know it's not a lot, but is there maybe something we can do to save them registering here, posting a question, and never coming back because they realised their errors?

Even something maybe in the bit up the top right, something like:

The CS situation

People looking for things to do with the other 144 meanings don't come posting here though Tongue

It's a good idea, but I think it'd need to stand out more, say a larger text and in bold just saying 'This is NOT a Counter Strike form'. I personally think that if I was visiting the site for the first time I probably wouldn't pay attention to that text in the corner unless it was bigger.

Two in just under six months - not what I'd really call a problem.

I agree with Tyssen. There might be a few more than two, but its not really a big deal and not worth defacing the site headers to make a highly visible, "We're nothing to do with Counter Strike".

The CS situation

I have to make an admission, I too originally thought that this was a forum for Counter Strike, and I have had to learn CSS to cover my embarrassment

The CS situation

Yes but in one sense a reply should not be forthcoming, and I don't mean that in a nasty way just that it's completely the wrong forum they should seek out the correct one I don't register at PHP forums and ask them how I change the oil in my car.

If you start providing answers on this then we become CSScreator & counter Strike forum.

Regardless it's hardly a problem as things stand just an occasional amusing diversion.

You could put it in the FAQs - then they'd definitely be read.... Wink

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!
