The rules in short (the ones most broken):


Disruptive Posting (aka Spam)
---
Behavior that disrupts the Service for other users, intentional or not, are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to:
-messages or topic titles that force browsers to scroll horizontally
-large blank or content-free messages
-"bumping" multiple older topics (posting in them well after the last post)
-posting multiple identical or near-identical messages or topics, including "fad" posts or topics
-intentionally hard-to-read topic titles or posts (i.e. ALL CAPS, AlTeRnAtE cApS, no spaces, no or excessive punctuation)
-posting multiple hard-to-read or nonsensical messages in a single or multiple topics

Offensive Material
---
Users may not transmit or encourage others to transmit material or links to material considered patently offensive in nature. This includes, but is not limited to
-using vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language
-using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult
-using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language
-posting, requesting, or otherwise sharing material considered pornographic, obscene, graphic, or hate speech.

Trolling (Inciting flames)
---
Messages intended solely to annoy and/or offend other users by going against the clear nature of a board, topic or chat room are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to
-provoking other users to respond with flames
-provoking fans of a particular system or game, especially on boards or topics dedicated to that system or game
-making misleading topic titles
-asking obviously useless questions
-posting false information as fact.

In short...before you post, ask yourself these questions:

Before you post: Before posting, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on any level?"


If you can answer "yes" to this, then please post. If you cannot, then refrain from posting.


Before you reply: Before replying, please ask yourself the following question: "Does my reply offer any significant advice or help contribute to the conversation in any fashion?"

If you can answer "yes" to this, then please reply. If you cannot, then refrain from replying.

Finally, the Rules Board has spoken.

Thanks again Neo. I almost forgot few of the rules.

not only that,some or a good majority of the new people are not reading the rules so it is good that we all have a reminder of the rules.

If only there was a way to make the stickies more...visual.

A lot of spammers here either don't recognize them, ignore them (knowing what they are), don't recognize them or post thinking that they are posting ok, even without reading the stickies.

Spam on a topic condemning spam... this is ridiculous.

To prove no one reads them. I wish that it was manditory and you cannot post until you read these before posting
