    That was really necessary.

    Clear rules as any forum should have.

    Very nice, I like.

    I think you've covered just about everything. It's really sad you have to point all this out, though. Although things like advertising your blog needed to be cleared up. hopefully everyone will follow the rules :)

    I respect your opinion.

    But I don't think it's sad. It's necessary.

    There's no modern society that lives based on moral rules. We need law, I mean written rules.

    My moral rules are not better than any of the users here and I think no one has better than mine.

    Common sense is kind of ask for too much, mainly due the moral statement above.

    Now we have rules. Now we have traced what our forum is all about. Of course that each one's moral rules (or even what every user may consider common sense) are the same but if he/she wants to join the forum (and not be banned) he/she has to follow the rules. Simple as that.

    Again, I respect your opinion but that's my point of view about it.

    Thanks arn, these are great. Most of these completely seem to be based off of arguments that was recently involved in....

    The rules were made to enforce common sense. And yes, it is sad that we need someone to tell us to use common sense.

    Have you seen some of the threads lately? Utterly ridiculous.

    But yes, it is 100% necessary

    Yes, and edited according to that discussion, which I believe was deleted.

  12. These are very welcome rules, and I am glad Arn agreed to post these rules as a sticky on each forum.

    "Keep threads on topic - obviously things can stray onto related topics, but we've seen threads stray into personal and irrelevant topics."

    As I said before, I do think the odd few humerous posts are ok too, so long as the conversation returns back to the topic after a few posts. We must be allowed some humour on here to keep it fun as well as informative.

    "Don't advertise your blog/podcast/youtube-channel on the site"

    Does this include in signatures? This needs to be made clear I think.

    @ Arn

    Search forum before starting a new topic could be another rule.

    Of course it's not the case to ban anyone but more as a guideline.

    Rapture. It sucks.
    Well (in my opionion of course) this sucks. No more insulting people, no more bad language. Crap.

    That rule was implied before, which you came to understand after a banning. You are being watched by arn anyway, so you should probably not do that anyway.

    Ya ya I know. Still though it's like going into an apple store and finding Bill Gates choking Steve Jobs. It's just not right (in my opinion).

    Haha. Don't get the metaphor, but still... That would be a disaster. Plus Steve Jobs would kill Bill Gates (metaphorically).

    I'm so guilty of this, so i'd like to apologize :

    "Please avoid correcting spelling and grammar. English is not the primarily language for many people, and grammar discussion does not really add anything of substance to most discussions"


    OOPS

    I dont know if you have implemented this or not but I think that when a new member joins the forums they should be automatically brought to the announcement so at least they will know that there are rules and will (hopefully) read them.
