Personally I never access the forum via the homepage. I have saved the forum or thread links in my browser and go directly to those and I imagine almost everyone does it that way. So I never saw that thread. Maybe you can install a pop-up for a certain time? Dunno if it's techically feasible, but how about one that appears the first couple of times you want to open a new thread? PS: Concerning Rule 10 you should keep in mind that especially for new releases it is pretty common for two or more people to upload the same movie at the same time. Should the uploads that are completed and posted a little late go to waste? PPS: It can also help to have links for the same file on the same hoster, what with the occasional deletions by the hosters.
