    Default [Guide] [Forums] Jacana's Guide to Intelligent Posting

    *All credit of the excellent guide that can help you become a more intelligent poster is given to Jacana of the .us forums who wrote it.*


    Anyone can spam, that is a fact, but not everyone can spam responsibly.

    And Jacana is here to show you how!

    The Guidelines

    1. 1337 speak is NOT cool.

    10. If you make a thread stating reasons why you should be a mod, you probably should NOT be a mod...

    11. If it is random and spammy, it probably belongs in the dump.

    There's a little thing in your post called an "edit" button. Use it instead of double posting.


    20. It's fine to express your opinions in your sig but NO ONE enjoys you trying to get into debates about your opinions.

    22. Using to many '...'s' makes you look insane.

    23. You don't have to get banned to be a spammer.

    I mean, look at me! No bans and I am the prince of spam!

    24. Size 7 font is annoying, ok!

    25. FTW = For The Win.

    26. White text is bannable if it is not used to fill the 4 character post count.

    (No quotes provided, it's bannable!)

    27. h@x0r speak isn't cool either.

    (No quotes, I am not fluent in h@x0r.)

    28. Posting another thread about why your game/thread got locked, and then trying to start the game again, will probably get you banned.

    It's days like these I wonder why I became a mod...

    *clicks the lock button*

    *clicks the ban button.*


    29. Begging for rep, probably won't get you anywhere...

    31. Note, English is the only acceptable language on the forum.

    Ba-Ba-Ba-Banned!


    Note: Above random letters represent another language being used.

    32. Cross-posting is annoying, if someone wants to respond to your topic, they should only have to do it in one thread.

    33. You are better off letting the filter block your word then trying to dodge it.

    (Let's just pretend I have a little quote here with some noob trying to dodge the filter and a mod banning them.)

    34. Reviving threads without a reason is a bad idea.

    35. Copy threads are very annoying, use the search tool!

    I think this is like the 86th World Wonder game now...


    36. You are not cool untill you've hit 10k posts.=P

    *is cool*

    37. Discussing bans can get you banned.

    38. It really isn't cool to have alot of negative (or positive really) rep, people will not think you are, persay, BA...

    39. Putting "Your Mom" in a poll is childish and immature. And completely unnecessary.
