UPDATE: New rule. (Oct. 20 by Milady)

The Official Rules of EVERY BOARD

1. Lurk before you post.This cannot be stressed enough. This means looking through the forums and reading entire threads to get the general "jist" of everything.

2. Google is your best friend. Before you ask a question, Google it. If Google can't help you (God forbid), then it's OK to post it.

3. Don't ask me anything about TPPC or the programs offered on these forums. I don't play TPPC. I only moderate and nothing more.

4. Don't be a troll. This means don't be a total asshole and excessively flaming everybody at any given time. Also, don't swear every second word. It's rude.

5. Limit the AIM/MSN/YIM/whatever speak. Just a little bit here and there to cut corners is fine, but typing like a coked-up 14 year-old girl on Prozac to the extent where your posts are no longer understandable is unacceptable.

6. DON'T TYPE IN CAPITALS ALL THE TIME. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING AT PEOPLE AND CAN BE TAKEN THE WRONG WAY.

7. Please, for the love of God, don't put a smilie after every single sentence. :) It makes me lose faith in all humanity. :) Also, it just annoys the piss out of everyone. :) Got it? ;)

8. No low content posts. Before you post/reply, ask yourself, "Does my post/reply help to contribute to the forums/thread in any way?" If the answer is "Yes", then post away. If not, don't even bother posting. Posts like "LOL OMG FUNNAY",  "hay guyz im new here. lol where da cheats at?", "wht up, G" are what I'm talking about.

9. Don't post requests for anything illegal such as warez, cracks or serials. The same applies for ROMS. If you must request a ROM from somebody, please PM them. Don't post it.

10. Don't muck around with the forums. Nobody likes a hacker. No, you are not a l33t h4x0r, and no, nobody is impressed. Blackhat = Asshat.

11. No threads about any illegal activity. This includes hacking. Seriously, you guys, if you want to learn how, then re-read Rule #2.

12. DON'T BRING BACK OLD TOPICS!! Seriously you guys. There is NO excuse for this rule. If you abuse it, I fully encourage all members to flame you to hell and back.

12b. If you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand. I've seen your face before, my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am. I can feel it coming in the air tonight.

13. No double/triple/quadruple posting. Don't do this to bump your thread.  Somebody will eventually get to it.  If you feel you must post an update, then use the Modify/Edit button.

14. No posting links. Unless if it's a link to a website that you have absolutely no affiliation with, then it's okay. Always ask a mod/admin before posting links.

15. Don't post your own programs. These are the forums for Ryan and Lucas' cheats. Not yours. If people want to d/l your program, they'll PM you.

16. Don't harass members in PM's. If a member asks you to stop PMing them, then stop! If somebody has been harassing you in PM's, report it to one of the admins or mods, and we'll deal with that person accordingly.

17. Laughing. I've seen it going around the forums forever now. It's getting quite annoying. Please stop posting in one post "lol", or "lmao". That is not funny, nor acceptable. Stop.

18. DO NOT sass the mods/admins! We are your friends, not enemies. We're here to help the site run smoothly and make sure you are satisfied. Do not start fights with staff members (this does not mean that you aren't allowed to debate or disagree with us, we need feedback that is helpful and necessary). If you give us respect, we'll give you respect. Don't tread lightly on this rule as breaking it will get you banned.
     Note: This also applies for staff members on other sites, such as TPPC. Unprovoked attacks on staff members outside messed is not tolerated.

19. Use the search feature. Please use the Search feature located in the upper right hand corner of the page to avoid posting a repeated topic. It really pisses us off when we see the same problems in different threads over and over and over...

20. Don't be an image leech. Please host images you wish to post on a hosting website, such as ImageShack.

21. Staff members are not above the rules. If you see any staff member abusing his/her powers, report them! We're trying our best to make messed a fair and fun place to be. (heh, it rhymed) If you have a complaint about any staff member, bring it up with one of us.

22. READ THE WHOLE THREAD BEFORE YOU POST!!! I'm tired of seeing uninformed posts shitting up good topics. ALWAYS READ THE WHOLE DAMN THREAD BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO POST IN IT AND MAYBE YOU'LL KEEP YOUR POSTING PRIVILEGES.

23. Do not report posts for the wrong reason! We've had quite a few stupid reports such as this, our latest one
Quote
The following post, "TPPC Money Generator 3.0" by Ryan has been reported by [name] on a board you moderate:
The reporter has made the following comment:
I'm using the tppc autoatacker but it get stuck what should I do

We will seriously start warning/banning for this, it gets rather annoying getting emailed about this crap

24. DO NOT POST OR GIVE OUT YOUR TRAINER NUMBER! I thought from the beginning this was self explanitory. Snitches from TPPC do lurk this forum. If they find a trainer number posted here, they'll report you and you'll be banned on TPPC. If you give someone else's number out, you'll be banned from messed. Also, let's drop the whole "PM SHRIMPEH FOR CHEETZ K" shtick. It's getting really old. While I do encourage Forum Natural Selection and a couple of cheap laughs, this is getting a bit out of hand.

25. General Discussion does not care about your AutoAttacker problems! DO NOT post threads about the programs here. If you've got a problem, please post it in Program Support. Threads about TPPC or any other Pokemon RPG go in TPPC Discussion.

Post in the right forum, and people will get to your problem right away. If you still insist on crapping up GD with threads that don't belong, your topic will be locked and deleted without sufficient warning. No, we won't move your thread to the proper board. It's your responsibility to make sure you're posting in the correct board, not ours. Repeat offenders will be post banned.

Here's a helpful little flash cartoon to help you noobs get started: http://www.starterupsteve.com/swf/posting.html (Credits to spix)

In general don't be an idiot. Breaking these rules will lead to a warning. Repeaditly breaking the rules will lead to a temporary ban, or worse, an IP ban. Follow by all of these rules and we can be friends.

This is what happens when we all follow the rules:


Exhibit A: Forum Members Follow Rules and All is Happy

This is what happens when we DON'T follow the rules:


Exhibit B: Someone Disobeys the Rules and Milady has Another Crisis on Her Hands

If you have anything to add/question, please feel free to PM me!
