I see a lot of posts on Gaming stackexchange that resemble forum posts. It is common to see People thanking others, adding an 'argument' as an answer, and even another question as an answer. Seeing how most gamers come from other forums to ask questions here, they might be used to a different format, style and rules of asking questions and joining discussions.
I would suggest that the FAQ should be mandatory checked before new users can ask questions. Other stackexchange sites such as
stackoverflow have users that are more likely to pick up on how stackexchange functions quicker than 'gamers'.
As an example of what I mean, when you try to answer your own question, you get this dialog box :
So why not incorporate this idea when posting Answers for the first time ? or every time until you get 10 rep ? Some rules such as

Has this issue been addressed ? Or is it not an issue at all ?? As Gaming stackexchange becomes more popular, more users will start signing up to ask questions, it might be a bit hectic for the community to manage all the errors that can result from new users' posts.
Would like to hear what you think about this topic and if it is an issue at all.
Note : I did not ask this to hint that moderators and the community are not efficient enough at moderating Arqade, it's a simple question I had in mind after I witnessed many repetitive mistakes by new users. This question is not meant to bash anyone's effort to maintain and moderate the site.
