Highlighting links to the site rules would avoid spam and great ideas to get deleted. Right now the rules aren't highlighted at all, so people didn't try to find them. By site rules I mean: Posting Guidlines, The Super FAQ, Previously Considered Feedback and Creating Great Ideas. These sections often tell the visitors what to avoid.
How to make it?
When on main site, those links shouldn't show up lower than right below green 'Help Center' and 'Report Bugs' buttons. The heading above the links should be changed - we can't keep 'Helpful Links to get Started' because people often think 'I do not need help! I can do that myself!'. We should change it to something similiar to 'That's Important! Read it!'. Background behind these links should be changed to eye-catching colour like red or yellow.
When creating a feedback, 'Try search!' section should be changed to something alike 'Read before sharing feedback!'. Background of this section should also be changed to eye-catching colour - grey blends in.
