Because it is redundant of what's stated in the links on the front page. If someone doesn't read what the Fest is all about before signing up and creating their first post, they sure won't read a thread in their appropriate forum (this is assuming that they actually find the right forum).
Dumb posts from newbies will happen no matter what. No point in clogging up the forum with stickies that aren't effective.
