This has actually inspired me... I think a little "movie" like this could be a great way to help newbie members of a forum and prevent a good share of newbie mistakes. Add sarcasm to taste... ;)

That was hilarious!

An excellent delivery tool though I wouldn't rely on it as the main delivery tool. It is amusing and it does get the rules across in a quick and easy format! The visuals are what make it effective as much as the spoken word.

Very funny. Pity it takes nearly seven minutes to load over a dial-up line. IMO this restricts its usefulness to almost zero.

True, when using something like this you really have to post a warning and/or have an alternative for those who still have slow connections. Fortunately, they are a minority and are decreasing.
