    Learn the way of the forum and you shall be respected.

    Please take some time to watch and enjoy the video.​


    Quick summary:

    1. First and foremost respect the almighty BGizzle and his appointed Mods
    • His house, his rules.

    2. SEARCH before you post.
    • This is the numero uno trending topic on this forum
    • If you find what your looking for look at the most recent date (the last post on the thread) if it is more than a month old don't reply to the thread! Many user will be annoyed. This is called bumping. Unless it is Sticky, then it is ok.

    3. Fanboys are another type of troll (don't become one)
    • An example of Fanboys are usually found in the console/OS threads. They fight and bicker on what is better.
    • Another is iPhone v. Andriod and AT&T v. Verizon. No need for it. Be unbiased as much as you can.

    4. Teenagers (the majority here)
    • Just be mature and don't act like a child

    5. Post Counts
    • It's quality, not quantity

    6. Don't enter/start a flame war
    • See a troll? Report it!

    7. Don't CAP LOCK your post
    • No need to yell, we can hear you just fine.

    8. Don't control other people threads
    • It's simply rude

    9. Stay on topic
    • Just don't go off topic unless your here.

    10. Picture etiquette
    • Those iHazCheeseBurger and any other type of pictures can get annoying so try not to use them... at all. If you do, well let just say the authorities will get you.

    Learning these can make a big difference on the forums.

    Not to be a pain in the a*s but how do you get to the video? Clicking the image just gives me info on the image.

    Thank BGizzle. (I am all sticky!!!) I figure that the new and existing members should read this to properly behave around here. Plus I always wanted to make a helpful thread.

    EDIT:And yeah the video is not made for embedding so click on the picture then click on the you tube video again to go to the main server to watch the video on the actual website.

    Nice! You could add a minor point about people not bumping old threads - unless very necessary.

    Actually, just don't bump threads at all. If you can't find your answer, just make a new thread, but only after searching and coming up with no answers to your question.

    I'm sorry, but the video seems to be dead now. I'd like to watch it though.
