WELCOME NEWBIES!
Whether you're new to the concept of online forums or regularly use them please take the time to read through this post to gain an understanding of how we run things around here.

CONTENTS
Chapter I - SPAM
Chapter II - Flaming
Chapter III - Trolling
Chapter IV - Thread Necromancy
Chapter V - Thread Hijacking
Chapter VI- Multiple Accounts


CHAPTER I - SPAM
Spam is...

1) Posting one liners. Replying to a thread and just saying something like "hey!" "yeah!" "lol" "I agree" "no" "tldr" etc..
2) Posting the same thread/post repeatedly in order to gain attention.
3) Posting something completely off-topic (OT) that has nothing to do with the thread.
4) Posting in a thread to simply "bump" it back to the top of the forum listings with no additional or useful content.


CHAPTER II - Flaming
Flaming is...

Posting personally or generally insulting remarks towards someone else, or a group of people (examples include calling someone an "idiot" for having views different to your own or being particularly demeaning to someone who is younger than yourself).


CHAPTER III - Trolling
Trolling is...

Deliberately attempting to goad people into a "flame war" (or, simply put, a "female dog fest") by posting disparaging remarks or comments that you know will incite a negative or nasty response.


CHAPTER IV - Thread Necromancy
Thread Necromancy is...

Reviving a "dead thread" (a thread that has had no new posts in it for more than a year) with something that has no relevance to it. For example posting "hey cool" (see SPAM) or "that was really helpful, thanks".
Please look at the date of the last post in a thread before posting something that lacks any real substance. If it was almost a year or more ago you can assume that this thread is dead, and unless you have something constructive to add that will continue the discussion, don't bother.


CHAPTER V - Thread Hijacking
Thread Hijacking is...

Posting something unrelated to the topic in order to gain attention for your post or simply to steer people off the main topic.


Chapter VI - Multiple Accounts

Only one account per person please. If you can't post with your main account it's likely what you're writing isn't going to be productive in this community and you might find your old account removed too.
