READ THIS NOW! The Rules Have Been Revised!
 
As some of you might have noticed, the forum rules were revised over a month ago in order to more accurately reflect how we deal with rule breaking. Despite this however, we are still getting a lot of reports (particularly with regards to necroposting) that suggest many of you have not gone over the rules since they were revised.

If you have not gone over the forum rules since their revision, DO SO NOW.

You should especially note the changes we made to the necroposting rule.

Quote:

11. Necroposting is when you find a thread that has been inactive for a set amount of time and then post in it again.
Necroposting is allowed only if your post makes a worthwhile contribution to the topic. Anyone who brings a Thread back to life on day 14 or later without anything worthwhile to contribute will receive an infraction. If you are confused what makes a necro, look at the date of the last post and add the number 14. If your calendar is on or past that date, it is a necro. An update by the original poster in the Thread is not a necropost.
I'm going to temporarily sticky this for a few days until I feel the majority of you have seen it. Thanks.

Not every member visits the off-topic & unrelated section off the site. I don't get why a rule change is not announced in the Announcements & Updates section of the site anyway.

It isnt? I thought it is...

cyrix 08-01-2008 12:19 PM

Ah....I remember the kerfluffle that created when I revised those.

Good point. Though I posted it here because I wanted the regulars in particular to see it since you guys are less likely to re-read the rules. A lot of the reports regarding necroposting were coming from people who have been here a while.

I'm gonna let this sucka sit here for a couple days and then I'll move it to announcements.

Moving this to announcements now that most of you have (hopefully) seen it.
