KarthGuyThat Posted May 15, 2012 Share Posted May 15, 2012 Rule #1 - Read All of the Global Rules. Like These Rules Here. Doesn't matter what these rules include, even if you think it's silly, there is a time and a place to break them, and that doesn't mean it's all the time, context. Rule #2 - Read All of the Stickied Threads. Some that should be read first;     Again, it doesn't matter if they want you to write all of your posts backwards while balancing a glass of milk on your head, they act as the specific board rules. Rule #3 - Acquire decent grammatical skills. This should be obvious, but capitalization or punctuation is small, but very important, there is a reason why it was created. Use It. Examples Shown below; How not to post: " i was wonderin when tehki is updated plz reply " How to successfully post: " Look at this amazing factory I built in Technic! " Rule #4 - Use a Thesaurus. Seriously, use one of these, it will help you out infinity when posting on a forums. Examples Shown Below; Average Shitpost: " Lol your a homofag " Now, how can we improve this to be a moderately acceptable post? Quality, But Borderline Shitpost: " The post above me is that of homosexual nature, I simply cannot agree with such claims. " Perhaps it really comes down to, "How would a pretentious British chav rewrite my post?" More Examples Shown Below; " what did i just read " / " What in the world is this man trying to explain? It's pure insane rabble! " " Technic isn't working why won't you fix it!? " / " The Technic pack is not working to satisfactory, could I inquire that you fix such errors? " Rule #5 - Kiss Those Moderator Asses. Again, as with the other rules discussed, it doesn't matter if you detest the administration with all of your ever loving heart, you do as they say. Have you ever had to get a job? Probably not, or else you'd understand, the Boss, is, le Boss, he/she governs the place, and you do as they please, or else. It's the same thing, in the end. Don't get on their bad side, this will gain you nothing. Visual Representation; Rule #6 - Be Polite to everyone. When posting on a forums, it's important to remember that the other posters are people too. One could say, Do nice things, and good things will happen to you, but this isn't magic we're talking about here, this is a simple cause and effect! Let me explain. When you are polite and courteous of the members of the forum that you are posting in, there is a good chance they'll be polite and courteous right back! On the other hand, if you're being a " bag of dickweasels " it is assumed another posted will respond in a similar manner as he's now upset at your posts.
