Title: >>Misc. Board Guidelines: MUST READ!
Post by: Madelaine25 on August 26, 2003, 08:46:32 pm

Hello! :)

The staff would like to take this opportunity to clarify the purpose of the Misc. board. This is a place to discuss topics which are not directly related to Elijah Wood, and which do not satisfy the criteria for posting in any other board. The Misc board is NOT a place to talk nonsensically; we are here to discuss.

We aren't saying that you can't have fun or enjoy posting in "group threads" (e.g. Toronto Film Festival and the like), but we are saying that we can't have threads which go on endlessly and have little or no substance. What we want is for members to post when they have something specific to say, and in the Misc. board, you can basically talk about whatever you want, so long as it isn't all ";D" "LOL" "he he he" and complete randomness.

From now on, whenever a moderator sees that you have spammed a thread, your post will be deleted. If a post of yours goes missing, that means a mod has deleted it.

If you have any questions concerning how the board is run, please post your concerns in the Message Board section. Thank you for understanding!

[COLOR=blue]**ALSO, PLEASE READ THE MAIN FORUM RULES -HERE- (http://always.ejwsites.net/YaBBSE/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=52) BEFORE POSTING**[/COLOR]

*agrees*

I think Eggo has basically said it all, but I just wanted to say that it may seem like we're being overly strict here..but as long as you're not spamming things left and right in this section, you'll be alright. ;)

I would ask that everyone would pay more attention to this. If you have suddenly lost quite a few posts, please don't whine to us about how your post count has gone down. It's gone down for a reason.

Please, keep these rules in mind when you're posting, and you won't have a problem. :)

Follow 'em, or die.

Just kidding. We'd all really appreciate it though. (Keep in mind that these will benefit all of us in the end.) ;)

And remember guys, clique threads are acceptable, but spam isn't. Spam in any type of thread will be removed.

NEW A&F RULE:

Starting immediately, comments made on ANY thread of the forum must be a minimum of 10 words! Anything under 10 words is not acceptable, and therefore will be deleted. Also keep in mind that repetition of one word, over extending one word or over use of netspeak is not considered constructive and will also be deleted.

EXAMPLES:

I love Elijah very, very, very, very, very, very, much.

Yru like that? B4 u weren't, but I was 2.

The movie was bad. I've never been soooooooooooooooooo bored in my life.

Also under this rule is posting of smileys. They are to be used to convey a particular emotion, not a word and therefore over use of these will be cause for a post to be deleted as well.

EXAMPLE:

YUCK! :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Or worse a single smiley:

;D

This will apply to ALL threads of the board except those in the Random Clubs & Fun Stuff sections. But using any of the above mentioned should be keep to an absolute minimum. Also the current rule of a 5 word post will remain for the Fan Creativity section.

This new rule will be strictly enforced.
