    Ah, the plot thickens. If I tell you, then they aren’t really unwritten rules are they? They aren’t that hard to figure out if you just read and watch the board for a while, but in the meantime there are a few pointers that may help you.

    1. We don’t expect new kids to know everything, but we expect you to at least put in the effort. The search function is your friend. Use it before you ask a question that has already been answered.

    2. There are reasons we don’t talk about certain subjects, and there are other places to yap about that stuff. Head there for that kind of talk, don’t try and bring it here.

    3. Learn what sarcasm is on the board and develop a thick skin, or you won’t like it here.

    4. Selling and re-selling – this is important. You need to read the flipping thread.

    5. Off-site links – remember where you are before you go posting links. Don’t poop where you eat unless you plan on eating poop.

    6. Yes, everyone here is a jerk, we already know that though.

    7. If you wouldn’t say it in real life, don’t say it here.

    8. Don’t offer a brand new toy that was just released in trade for a really old rare toy or prepare to feel the wrath. You would think this is obvious but you would be surprised.

    9. Please don't post auction links, it only causes problems. Let people find them on their own.

    10. Please don't post lottery links, it only causes problems. Let people find them on their own.
