|Rules of the
Message Board- June 07th 2002
Posted by Shin
In Recent weeks we've encountered
numerous posts promoting some bullshit. Other wise known as SPAM. Thus our very own Kate
and Mappy Man have drafted up a rules list. Read them and enjoy the message board.
Read Before Posting: Forum Rules, Guidelines, Etc.
Recently here at the Fujikoma Forums, we've been having a rash of Spammers and other
generally unwanted posters. Please be considerate before you read and/or post.
1. NO SPAM.
Please be considerate about this. We don't come to your board and spam. If you feel the
need to spam despite our asking you not to, please make sure this is RELEVANT spam, placed
in the correct forum.
Example: "Hey! My friends and I are working on a new anime related project, and we'd
like a few people to mosey on over and lend a hand if they could!"
Bad Example: "HEY I lIkE DbZ aNd YoU GuYs ShOuLd CoMe To My WeBsItE aBoUt ShOeZ. K.
2. TOPICS SHOULD BE PLACED IN APPROPRIATE FORUM.
If you're talking about Spiderman, Great. Not Great in the Convention Forum. This
OBVIOUSLY belongs in the movies section. Same goes for talking about koalas in the video
game forum, unless it's GAY KOALA, who is allowed in any forum he pleases.
3. STAY FRIENDLY.
It would be nice if you introduced yourself. Not a 9204230 paragraph biography, but
something like, "Hey. I'm Gimbolos. I'm from Tiajuana!" This will automatically
get you points. :D Also, don't come in just to flaunt a negative opinion. It's nice that
you have an opinion, but not if you say it in a mean or negative way, unless that's how
everyone else is talking. Also, most of the posters here know each other in real life, it
might not be taken well if you flame someone. Think before you speak.
4. NO ASKING FOR HANDOUTS.
"Anyone have any tapes they wanna trade?" is a good question. "HEY CAN I
HAVE A LIVEJOURNAL CODE EVEN THOUGH I DON'T KNOW ANY OF YOU!?" is a bad question.
This is obvious. Don't be dumb.
5. TYPE LIKE A HUMAN.
Believe it or not, no one wants to read you type like A LiTtLe CaNdY rAvEr WhInY BiTcH.
This just makes it apparent you have too much time on your hands. Not that there's
anything wrong with candy ravers or anything.. It's just annoying.
6. MODS AND ADMINS ARE IN CHARGE. PERIOD.
No whining if your post is deleted. No whining if you've been edited. Don't get mad if a
grammer nazi comes and corrects your english. The mods and admins are in charge. If we
find the need to ban you from the forums for good, you'll just look stupid if you come
back with a new screen name like, "FUJIKOMASUCKMYMOMSASS," and tell us a sob
story about how one of the mods hates you. We normally make group decisions on what goes
and what stays, so you'll just be insulting all of us.
Please try your best to be considerate and adhere to these rules! At least try not to be a
fucktard, and everything will be just fine! :D
