Sigh, it seems like it has come to that time again. With what seems to be an influx of new members to the forum, I thought I would just suggest a few things to keep in mind. I am not a moderator or trying to be the thought police here, so if you think I am pointing the finger at you, take it easy and PM me. We always get the typical n00bs showing up just to ask for the latest greatest thing to them, hocking stuff, and the inevitable barrage of "PM'ed". And not everything is black and white. But aside from that, there is some easy decorum you should keep in mind. FAQs - They are there for a reason. Read them. Use them. (Ideally before posting) SEARCH - This one seems so obvious, but is evidently used the least. The search engine might not be the best, but at least give it a try. For heaven's sakes, even just looking at thread titles gives you some information, and can at least point you in the right direction. And FYI, googling a topic on the internet, marvel of marvels, still returns discussions on SB; we are not a cut-off oasis. Post Control - If no one posts after you do, you can easily edit and delete your old posts. [Heck, even if someone does you can] There is no need to continuously keep posting. If you really need to bump your thread ( ) then delete the last one and post something new. The same thing goes for individual messages - that is what PMs are for. Not everyone needs to be involved in the conversation. Ask [politely] - but don't expect everything to just be handed to you. A lot of us are stuck in our ways, but we are not such an unfriendly bunch. But you'll find you get the respect you earn here. Ask anyone why a certain member's rep is in the proverbial toilet and you will probably get a reasonable answer. This is not a sales board. - If I need to explain it, you are missing the point. Just five simple things. Loads more tips out there, so I'll let some others add their own. But basically we have all had to go through a learning curve here, so don't expect that you will be any different. I'll also just extend a general thanks to Brian, the mods, and all those behind the scenes working to keep Skullbrain running and awesome!
