well, once the FAQ pages are completed could we direct them to that thread after registration. I know there is some way to do this

Making people wait before posting is just going to drive them away. They're not going to be influenced that way.

To my eye, the most helpful thing would be to present new members with a post outlining the structure of the forum and pointing out the sections for OS-specific questions (in particular, OS X, as I move 3-4 posts out of Beginner on that topic each day.) It would also help if we had FAQs displayed prominently.

Hhmm.... Okay..... Let's see....

Is there a way that the forum software could suggest where to put the new post? (similar to how the title suggests checking out the listed existing threads before posting)

I just don't know how the accuracy would work or how practical it would be, though....
