The Rules
« on: February 07, 2010, 04:23:25 PM »

As set by CraigStern on the old forums:
"All right folks, there are only a few rules for posting here (as of right now--more may be added later if the need arises):

-- no pornography
-- no hate speech
-- no spamming
-- no flaming
-- no advertising (as of 5-27-11)

Doing any of those things is a bad idea, and will probably get you banned from these forums.

What should you do, then?

-- be polite
-- use proper grammar
-- consult dictionary.com when in doubt about how to spell something

That's all. Now go off and have fun!"

I was wondering, since when you write a really long post, the reply box starts acting up, could you double-post occasionally for the really long posts? It would make things a lot easier.

Wasn't aware of that problem: I think it's worth pointing out to CraigStern about the replay box issue. Otherwise, if it's used sensibly and not too often, I don't see why not. An alternative can be to write half-a-post, post it, then edit it and add extra text to it.

That same reason is why, when I suggested redoing the RTD with all the rules and stats and stuff, that they be separated into several posts

As of right now, you must have 5 posts in order to post in General. This is to deal with the annoying spambots who keep signing up and posting there. Let me know if you have any questions.

How come I still see posts in the General by people who have posted twice?

Er, yes. I changed it to two posts, since I've restricted first posts to Newbie Land, and Introductions is the only place you're allowed to post if you're not a spam bot. It seemed silly to make someone post more than once in Introductions.

unless that person has multiple personality disorder then they need to post more than once in intro if the other personalities want to join.

Okay, update: I've installed a mod to the forums that makes new users answer a simple question when they first sign up. Spambots can't get around this. Since that's in place now, I've removed the post restrictions entirely. :)

I know I sound stupid (but I'm not) but what is flamming?

A term for generally bashing another user. Threatening, cursing, attempting to start a fight, and other unreasonably aggressive behaviors. Rebutting another is fine, but flat out aggression is not.

These rules are fairly simple it would kind of hard to brake them. But it all depends on ones personality does it not?
