I recall having been on a site once where in order to post on certain forums you needed to specifically acknowledge particular rules before it would allow you to submit. When you clicked the "New Post" button in a relevant forum with very specific guidelines, it would include the guidelines needed for posting on the submission page, and checkboxes for each point.

I don't recall what kind of software it was running, and it was a few years ago. My thought was that if there was some kind of setup like that available for this site's software, it might reduce the number of times new members posting in the Map Request area need to be asked to read the sticky and update their posts in order to provide requested information.

It might not work for all cases, but it might work for a few people.. if it's something that's available, that is.

Just a thought.
