    Updating some threads and stickies. If you see anything that needs to be added, @Zombie Click my name, and start a new private conversation and PM me. This is a condensed version of what I had before. Old thread here.
    Here’s a collection of stickied posts on top of each forum and subforum for rules, its strongly advised that you read them.

    QoL Rules to Live By
    • Admin’s Rule and Mod Rule is law.
      • And subject to ‘in situ’ adjustment
    • Don’t Necro a thread unless you feel like you have something to contribute. If the thread is a year older or more, you might be better off starting a new thread.
      • Library threads are exempt from the necro rule, but do not think that a one word response is going to cover your ass. Have something to contribute. There are others that follow those threads and they’ll get mad if you’re just saying ‘I WANT MOAR’
      • Do not necro a WbA thread unless you’re giving some feedback and even then if its older than 30 days, you may wind up with a week’s time out.
    • Keep in mind though that mods will merge them if they feel it's not warranted.
    • Don’t get butthurt when the only reply to your well crafted thread is someone else pointing out the thread already exists.
    • Here’s where I’d talk about having a thick skin, but if you can’t handle something, or feel like it was way out of line; there is a report link on each post. Use it.
    • Reiterate: Plagiarism is a no no.
      • You will be banned. No question or exceptions.
    • If you post anywhere on the forum and you include your opinion as a matter of fact, prepare yourself to defend it. If you backpedal, you’ll probably get called a name. Own your post.
    • Above all, we’re all here to have fun. So don’t take any one person too seriously.

    Stickies, Useful Links, and Guides
