Looks like the basic guidelines everyone has been using already. I guess it is good to have it in writing somewhere though.

I would say that most regulars adhere to (or unspokenly created) these rules. But yeah, it's nice to have something to reference so that we can keep each other in line.

Yeah, we've been meaning to just have something documented.
We've had a few people complain when they get in trouble but don't have any written rules.
Plus it's a nice reminder of how to act respectfully online :)

Good rules. We don't tend to get problems here much as the ages of the members here are adult, rather than teenage as per many gaming and modding sites; so people here know how to behave and be civil to each other with respect.

Thats funny thinking that kids are the ones that cause problems. Go to Neo-Geo.com where the average age is 35 and see what I am talking about.

[list=1][*]Try to create meaningful post titles – instead of making something cleaver or attention grabbing, it’s actually better to have accurate and descriptive titles. It will help bring in the most helpful members and will make it easier for users to find the information later via search.


You wrote "cleaver" instead of what I assume was meant to be "clever."
