Default Posting & You

After yesterdays drama, I found this, which confirmed, it's not just this forum...

Thats good, so is this.

25 Forum Posting Etiquette Tips

1. Read the forums rules and guidelines before posting for the first time.

2. Search the other posts to see if your topic is already covered.

3. Use a meaningful title for your thread.

4. Do not use a forum to promote your product, service or business.

5. Be civil. Personal differences should be handled through email or IM and not through posts displayed to everyone.

6. Stay on topic.

7. Ignore spammers, respond to them personally and not through the board, or report them.

8. Do not submit a post that requires readers to download a large attachment. Either explain the attachment or, better yet, provide a link to the information.

9. Use plain text over HTML if you want your post to be readable by everyone.

10. In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members.

11. Do not double post (post the same message twice in one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several forums).

12. Act in a give and take manner; help others as often as or more than you ask for help.

13. Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. In addition, one exclamation point is enough.

14. When replying to a post, do not quote more from the previous post than you have to.

15. Do not post new problems on someone else's thread and interrupt a topic of discussion.

16. Do not use someone else’s thread for a private conversation.

17. Most forums prohibit warez, cracks or illegal downloading of software and similar topics.

18. Watch your sense of humor, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.

19. Do not use a huge and annoying signature, a modest signature is fine, moderators may remove large ones anyway.

20. Do not post any information that you want private. Posts should not contain personal, identifiable information or content embarrassing to others.

21. Do not post content that violates a copyright.

22. Do not post ”empty” or useless responses, such as just ”lol” or ”cool.” Only post responses when you have something to contribute.

23. Write concisely and do not ramble.

24. Do not use words like ”urgent” or ”important” in your subject line, be patient.

25. Do not chastise newbies.

Maybe one or two we're a bit more relaxed about, but, again, it's not just us, this is standard forum etiquette, no matter where you go...

One another note: .....(sorry for the double post).....but this has been my view for the last day or so....as I was sent to time-out to sit in the corner with my dunce cap on.....and....it was justified....

So....I apologize....and it will never happen again....

( Now.....for the uninitiated.....the above statement has the forum owner and moderators laughing so hard they are peeing their pants.....because if it's not the best joke I've told yet.....it's at least the biggest lie)....

But hey guys.....I will try.....and it's the thought that counts, right?

Happy Fathers Day guys.....

NO!!!!! I Like IBTB

And Poboy I almost peed when I realized what that pic was!! Have someone read #25 to you. LOL

The best advice I have is the Ignore button on our user profile page. I know Poboy is back but the others. I don't know and I don't care. It is easier to use the ignore user button.

Thanks for the Video Fabroman. Where was that 36hrs ago.

So many people compalain about the forum rules, but little do they know that this forum is actually pretty relaxed about rules. You should try some other forums!! Put one foot wrong, or mention a certain "topic", and you are gone....for good....

Count yourselves lucky that i am such a nice forgiving soul

This forum is strict compared to the street outlaw guys site ! Midwest street cars .com and frankly i like this one alot better ! I used to be on there all the time before the show ever started as i know alot of them but its gotten really bad a few years prior to the show starting.

So keep up the good work guys..........Well except Poboy. lol

P.S. and yeah i spaced the name on purpose !!!

The cinematography in that video is simply stunning and the story just draws you in. I'd give it 2 thumbs up if I had any.
