PostSubject: Universal Rules   Universal Rules EmptySun Sep 26, 2010 3:41 pm

I think it's time somebody restated the rules here in GAC. The rules have been posted in many threads all across the forum, but I would like to condense all of the general rules right here so you can all see them. Sometimes it annoys the %@&€! out of me when people don't follow these guidelines, so I want you all to know what they are:
______________________________________________________________

1. This has surely been said before, but please, NO double posting. It is very annoying and makes the page really long and hard to scroll through sometimes. If you have something to add to one of your previous posts, remember that you can edit your posts. The only exception to this rule is when the double post is written at least a day after the previous post.

2. If you are going to post on something, make sure you read the Original Post (OP) and make sure you know what kind of response the maker of the thread wants. Don't just send a one-or-two word response. There is a reason we have a chatbox. Here is an example of what you should NOT do:

Well, Good luck with this.

(From the Team GAC4 thread)

3. Please don't use mass smileys! It can get very annoying and can even crash some computers. Mass smiley attacks have completely shut down my computer before, and I don't want it happening again!

4.
Please avoid profanity in your posts. It doesn't mess up the forum, but it is just rude. A very good example of what should NOT be done has been posted on this very thread:

Quote :
Unfortunately for my agendas and lower conscience, I must follow these rules...Damn you higher conscience! But uh...seriously, nice work person. Sometime, I really have to come up with one of those good ideas like this....(DAMN! No thinking smilie!) :bounce:
(I won't mention their name, to save them the embarrassment)

5. Please only include one sig picture in your sig. It makes the page very long if you don't. For example, if you have a series or contest to advertise, maybe use that banner instead of your current one, and replace it once the contest or series is over.
______________________________________________________________

Helpful Tips section:
These are some tips that many of the other GACers use to make their forum experience easier. If you want more, check the SMT thread.

1. If you are referencing one of your creations when you post, please remember to provide a link. It really bugs people when they can't see the creation you are talking about. Who knows, they may want to give it a R+ but they can't if they don't have a good link, and it's not nice to make people search for your creation.
______________________________________________________________

Thanks for looking at this thread. If I think of more ideas, or if people give them to me, I may add them to the OP.

Sticky would be nice, since we're going to be constantly adding to it.

That's probably because it's not as easy to see when there are new posts on stickies and announcements.

PS. The OP has been updated with this:

4. Please don't use mass smilies! It can get very annoying and can even crash some computers. Mass smiley attacks have completely shut down my computer before, and I don't want it happening again!

Please don't use profanity on this forum! This has been added to the OP as an example of inappropriate behavior.

I'm just kinda happy I'm not one of the examples. I'm pretty sure I'm guilty of over half the things on that list. face plam Good guidelines so far, shouldn't be hard to be mindful of.

Yes, I can personally remember you breaking rules one through three. I haven't used you as one of the examples because you use good grammar. I only like people who capitalize, punctuate, and use complete sentences... and check their post for spelling errors before sending it.

Awesome title FTW.

But people really need to read those guidelines.. People are slacking with them.

Yeah, your right. It's probably not that serious.

You should maybe Edit that Gelo, if you don't have an opinion about it?

It's more of a guideline than a rule. I guess I'll make a section in the OP for helpful tips such as #3.

EDIT: It has been done. Checketh the OP.
