Ok so I am a new user on Stack Overflow and I want to ask my first Question (yay).
Step 1 (one):
ok So I click on Ask Question:
Step 2 (two):
Read Read Read Now I have a whole megillah to read:
Now I click proceed to get to the next step! Finally asking my question! :-)
Step 3 (three):
I am stopped dead in my tracks and am asked to log in:
Why was that second step necessary?
Should that not be asked to log in before I have to read that whole thing?
This could deter a new user or two.
I suggest only showing the "How to Ask" page if a user is already logged in and tries to ask a new question, not beforehand.
