You're the one that said you read the rules like, three times, right?

2) Please do not post in netspeak, l33tspeak or chatspeak. Occasional uses of "lol" or "lmao", etc., are fine, but posts that are consistently written in anything other than grammatically correct English will not be tolerated. Have at least five distinct words in your post, and limit your use of smileys/emoticons to no more than 4 per post.


It used to be the 10-word rule, but I guess we shortened it to five. Still, it should be five real words or something. XD

That's her. What I want to know is, do you have policies about "dead" threads? I've been yelled at on other forums "OMG you bumped! That thread hadn't been posted on for 2 weeks!" Just wondering.

Just common sense. If it's two weeks old, it's alright. If nobody's posted in a thread for a year... well, common sense would tell you to just leave it alone.

If what you say can redeem the discussion, I don't see why not... xD

True, Matt, but if a thread's been dead for a year... It probably died for a reason. There's probably nothing to add to it. And I've never seen anyone on this forum revive a year-dead thread with something to ADD to the discussion.

Thats because most of the people that revive year old threads are just looking for something to post in...

Which is exactly the reason we frown upon the act. ^_^

I'm glad you've realized your mistake. Welcome to the site. Try to pay more attention from now on, please...

However, I don't quite understand what you mean about a note. Can you explain?

[center][color=#000080]Like... As soon as you register to the forum the rules come up before you're taken to the Board Index. Or just a note that comes up as soon as you register that says 'Please read the rules in the gates before posting', or something like that.[/color][/center]

Good idea. I didn't read the rules at first because I didn't know about them, so if new people got an PM saying to read the rules or something, that would probably help.

I've seen other forums that say you have to post in a specific thread before you can post anywhere else, acknowledging that you've read and understood the rules.

That's actually a smart idea. I think it's time this was bought up in anyhow.

Thing is, I can't actually remember which forum it was in.

It might have been the Flying Spaghetti Monster forums, though.

Edit: Yep, it is. First forum:
