Guys, I understand that you like to "have fun," but the newbie forum is not a chatroom.
These threads are turning into ridiculous chats where you are saying stupid (and sometimes offensive) things. The purpose of this part of the forum is for new people to introduce themselves and say things about themselves, not for you to kill their threads by talking about yourselves.
You also need to slow down on the posting.
Some of you have 13 or 14 posts a day, and you've been here for a month or so. This is not right! You need to take it slow when you come to this forum, since it is really a community where there is a definite style of posting and humor. It is not hard to become part of this community - all you need to do is ask yourself "if I were someone else, would I want to read this?"
before pressing the Post button. If you hesitate, chances are whatever you are going to say will not be conducive to the discussion. Posting things that are "random lol" are annoying and just piss other people off.
If you receive a polite PM from an older member of the community who isn't a mod asking you to change something about the way you post, please listen. While the mods might be here to enforce the rules, the community itself defines a large part of what constitutes acceptable discussion and general forum culture. They are most likely trying to help you out before a mod sees you or has to say something to you. It is generally in your best interest to be polite and listen to what they have to say. If someone is rude you can always contact a Mod or Admin.
I'm not going to quote specific examples of posts that are ludicrous, because I don't feel like singling people out, but if you guys don't get your act together, know that I will.Admins & Mods
