    I new that would come up, but I think this thread could be very useful to new people who are constantly posting already made threads.

    Hmh, but only if it's stickied. I would love this thread if it prevented at least 2 other pointless threads.

    Nice list. Don't forget "I'm having a problem with Cube4you/DealExtreme/Popbuying/Vcubes.com/any other site that is not Speedsolving" and "How long does shipping from X take/how much does shipping cost?"

    I added some shop stuff, but I couldn't find much on "problems" that had anything useful in them. If you have a thread in mind, linky?

    Not that I know of.

    Sticky? By the way I think this thread would do better in a different forum section.

    I wasn't sure where it belonged. I spent about 5 minutes clicking on the sections to see if any fit. Mods feel free to move it.

    Justin's approval counts for more :p

    also, I updated it to add a BLD thread and a 3x3 post.

    I really want this stickied. I think this is a great idea. Maybe doesn't deserve a sticky, but will prevent a lot of clutter.

    The point is that we are not Cube4you/DealExtreme/Popbuying/Vcubes. If you have a problem on those sites, stop posting in the help section of Speedsolving. We can't help you.

    Maybe newbies should be shown this thread when they first join?

    Good enough?
