OK this is a feature that NEEDS to be added. The newbie guide by miromiro. On the Forum Index it says 'Be sure to check out the Grand Theft Auto V Forum' What is the use of keeping that on the top? So you could remove that and add this guide.
Now I know some of you would say that 'No one would bother to read a guide so big' There is the shortened version of the guide made by CCPD here. It's very short and covers enough for newbies to understand how the Forum works, So you could add that link to the Index.
Also there is a separate guide for BB Codes here You could add that to for those who are having troubles with codes. You should also add the Forum Rules and Guide lines too.
It should read like this:(IMO)
- Check out the newbie guide by miromiro! (with the links)
- Too lazy to read a guide so long? Check out the shortened one here(with links again)
- Having troubles with BB Codes? Go here.(with links)
- Also check out the Rules and Guidelines before posting(with link)
Also it would take a long time for members to come across miro's guide because he updates it only once a month and they do not visit the general chat section at first.
For example look at these comments in his guide:
If only the new members would be forced to read this before posting..
I never knew this thread existed.† Pretty interesting, I must say. I agree with Extreme that this should be pinned.
So please mods and admins do this to help the newbies and noobs.

This deseves to be pinned!
I really think it's a disgrace that you don't get replies for this long, while you are updating it every single month. My compliments for keeping this up!

A request to mods:Please get this thread pinned.This deserves to be pinned.
So you can see how much members think that guide is important. If this is the case how on earth are newbies going to learn on how to surf the Forum? It's not like every member that registers is a spam bot? There was this guy called GTASAdict he made like 7 topics in network support section because he had no IDEA about the Forum(excluding the stupid IP Question) and none of the mods BOTHERED to link him to something like miro's OR CCPD's guide.
So PLEASE do something about this. Anyone got a counter-arguement feel free to post.
