Guide: Does your post belong here?
« on: October 26, 2010, 08:12:54 pm »

This board is, as the name suggests, for serious discussion. With three potential off-topic boards to talk in, this might get a little confusing for some of our newer members. Each board does have a distinct etiquitte, however:

Crap!
The name says it all, here you have all kinds of trolling and spamming, to a degree. This is the least serious board, and you shouldn't really expect anyone to stay on topic.

General Discussion!
This is the middle board in terms of seriousness, and is likely to be where most of the confusion lies. It's for casual discussion about life, video games, music etc. Topic may drift from time to time, but not suddenly or entirely.

Serious Discussion!
This board is modded very strictly. All topics and posts should be serious in nature. (Current affairs, politics, religion, science etc) Before you make any post, carefully consider whether it is serious enough. If you make a joke or irrelevant remark in the middle of a serious discussion without contributing to the topic, the mods (and other users) probably won't like it too much. If you want to discuss something else, make a new thread.

At the same time, don't feel intimidated. Posting here will generally draw fewer trolls and insults to you than other boards. Feel free to add to the discussion provided you actually know what you're talking about.

Good, I was too lazy to make something like this myself. Don't see any point to keeping the other thread stickied now.

You should still have the other one stickied imo. The Crap Forum is Up thread is stickied in its board, it would be fitting to have it stickied here.

Would there really be a point, though?

The Crap forum sticky is used as a spamming thread, pretty much. So no.

I just typed all that on a DS touch screen, so thanks for the positive feedback.

True, there wouldn't be that much of a point to it since this is the serious board. You're right.

And now back to the topic at hand, nice job with the description! Especially nice since it was done right from the DS Browser!

The description for Crap is way off. Description needs more Silverrida influence.

Will post count if you post in Serious Discussion? Just wondering is all.

Do it again and you'll see a warning.
