[Information] General Information

1) It takes 30 days and 30 posts before you can have an avatar. Patience, grasshopper. See also "freeposting".

2) You're welcome to have a signature, but you won't be allowed to have an image. WHY? Because images increase bandwith with every post, placing unnecessary burden on bandwith and server.

2a) It's not recommended to include your e-mail address in your signature, unless you're really fond of

3) If you double post / post in error, please press the (edit) button and select the necessary options to delete your post.

3a) If you have just posted, and wish to add something to your post, please do not post again, but press the (edit) button, you can then add / edit your post.

4) If you notice a post that may be in violation of these rules, try sending a private message to a moderator, or the site administrator, 'Troy Roberts'. You can also report a post that may be offensive by pressing the button, known as the "Report Bad Post" button - but keep in mind this sends an e-mail to the moderators and administrator, which may not be seen right away.

5) Etiquette note: CAPITAL LETTERS ARE JUST LIKE RAISING YOUR VOICE. IF YOU TYPE EVERYTHING IN CAPITALS, YOU ARE RAISING THE EMPHASIS ON EVERYTHING YOU SAY, WHICH MEANS YOU ARE YELLING. Just try not to type everything in caps, OK?

6)Netiquette in a nutshell (borrowed from another forum):
  • Lurk Before You Leap
  • Think Before You Post
  • Do Not Flame
  • Do Not Post in All Upper Case

  • Please Check Your Post for Errors before Posting
  • Check the FAQ and Rules before Posting a Question
