Wait are we talking about me or not, cause if we're not I'm so not interested.

I would venture so far as to say at the moment you would not be one of the folks whom most would direct this thread at.

Carry on being irrelevant, mate.

I don't know about anyone else, but as a Noob I found this thread very entertaining. Asshat is particularly descriptive.

I promise to try not to be an asshat. I will make every effort to write clearly and keep simple-minded posts to a minimum.

Thanks for the laugh.

it pretty much boils down to common sense.

- having the common sense to know how to react in public.
- having the common sense to get to know the culture of the forum (it takes about 5 minutes)

unfortunately - the classical asshat will have no common sense to speak of - so there really is no re-educating them.



crazy people dont know they are crazy - and if you tell them that they are crazy - they wont believe you.

u dont bother to spell or punchuate ur sentenses or make n efort two use propur grammer.

The Solution
Have some respect for your readers if you want them to read your posts. Mozilla has an add on that underlines offending words in red. You don't have to be perfect, just readable.

The Problem
You start too many threads or the majority of your posts are irrelevant.

The Solution
Slow down there, buckaroo. Starting too many threads/posting too many irrelevant posts in one thread can frustrate people. Some feel it's pointless to make a thread/post to the OT when it's going to get bumped several pages.

The Problem
People keep asking me why I'm here:(

The Solution
Sometimes people wonder that when you join a horror board and never talk about horror. If people are saying this, that's probably the problem.

The Problem
Members yell at me for posting in the wrong forum/spamming/topics been done.

The Solution
We have a search function. It's not as good as it could be, but it helps you get by. Usually, if you start a new thread about a topic that's only 4-5 pages back, you're going to get called on it.

Search Help
To get the search feature to open, you have to right click on the search button and open it in a new window. For those of you who haven't been here very long, this came about when the forum underwent an upgrade. The upgrade still has some bugs in it that were never worked out, this being one of them.

Posting in the right forum is fairly simple. There are descriptions under the name of each forum about what to post there. It only takes a few seconds to browse through and figure out where your topic should go.

As far as spam, if you feel you must, be polite and don't try to pawn yourself off as someone else who found this "great new thing and must share it with people I've never enteracted with before." Post in the right forum, and don't get all defensive. There are plenty of people here who will give you an honest review of your crummy product.

The Problem
You guys are all assholes lolz:mad:

The Solution
Yes, we are.



Before anyone takes immediate offense, please note that this thread is supposed to be helpful. Constructive criticism (or barbing, as it goes here) makes up the backbone of our little INTERNETz society.
I think I love you.

I'm quoting this to make sure it's read.
