Video Playlist for New Users with Under 5 Posts


I'm working on showing the video player to new users with under 5 posts which shows only videos like the ones below, which are related to the forums, how to use the forums, code tags, usercp, etc.:


or maybe something minimal and very focused:

# 2  
OK. This is done.

Users with under 5 posts will see these two videos (until I add more, or make other changes):
  • The Great History of UNIX (1969-1999) | 30 Years of UNIX History | UNIX and Linux Forums
  • How to Use Code Tags and Format Posts | The UNIX and Linux Forums

Maybe I will add the one about forum moderation?

Or maybe create another tutorial about general forum usage?

Any ideas?

OBTW, here is what it looks like (at the bottom of the main pages) for users with less than 5 posts:

Hi Neo,

Thanks and I like your thought process on this, I'm sure the work will pay off in saved time for the guys that moderate the forum.

Just changed it again to only show one video, the most important one for new members:
  • How to Use Code Tags and Format Posts | The UNIX and Linux Forums
# 6  
And just updated for the following logic for showing this player:

Posts < 5


Infractions > 0


Warnings > 0

So, if a user has 100 posts and does not use code tags and a mod issues an infraction or warning, they will also see the video player Smilie
These 2 Users Gave Thanks to Neo For This Post:
