I thought it would be good to start with a clean slate to go with a clean forum.
This is a place you can report problems (like bad threads), and/or discuss on issues that really don't warrant the Mod's time, and/or on issues to decide if something is really worth our time, and/or something we might not be aware of.
Discuss the issue brought forth in a civil manner.
This thread IS NOT a place to discuss:
Philosophy or Theology itself Promoting your journal/profile Abstract Improvements to the site (i.e. software changes) Complaints about the mods Issues in other forums
We like links. The more specific (like the exact page in the case of a big thread), the better. Problems can be people, threads, flaming, trolling, etc.
YOU'VE GOT A FUNNY WAY OF SHOWING YOUR SARCASM !!! SHOUTING !!! IN ALL !!! CAPS !!!
(Wow I've got to relax my vocal cords. )
If you're joking around in the future, remember, the internet is going to butcher feeling and expression from any post unless you stucture it right. Give people the heads up that you're not serious, and all it is, is a joke.
Personally, I like the e-motes. They get the job the done.
Can we add this little ditty from the P&CE forum rules here?
This forum has thrived on intelligent discussion. If you're looking for something else, take it to another forum. Proper English is greatly appreciated (though occasional typos are understandable). 1337-speak and Internet shorthand are not welcome here. If you're going to make a bold assertion, at least attempt to back it up with something.
Okay. I have to help a friend move, but I'll be back at around 7 and I'll start redoing the rules for this site to make them less clearly ripped out of PCE. If anyone has any advice or suggestions feel free to volunteer it.
Also, if anyone wants to save me some work and rewrite some of these to be more geared towards this forum, it would be appreciated. Just post your edits here.
