Here's more board etiquette - don't spam important threads. Like this one. Because no-one wants to scroll through the useless tripe to get to the stuff they need to know.

Another thing, now's a good time to spring clean your sigs everyone. Tired of those old song lyrics that take up seven lines and everyone read six months ago? Then it's time to shift 'em out and trim it down.

Try and get your sig so that it is as small as possible please, it makes the board easier to read. The general guide is that a sig shouldn't be taller on-screen than you avatar (the pic below your name).

Mostly sigs are fine, I just want to remind people to keep a check on these things. Thanks!

Oops, my bad sad.gif

I must have missed the "no swearing" part in the rules.

Just a thought... I think some of the stuff people post about is far more offensive than swearing.

Sorry for makin more work for y'all.

*stops being so obscene*

I guess this isn't so much as board etiguette, but more of a pet hate...
Text speak is annoying. Its not big and its not clever.

It's annoying that's what it is! dry.gif Stuff like leaving out vowels to make the words shorter. It's all well and good doing it when you are texting as you need the space but there aren't those types of restrictions on the board so stop doing it. It's just darn lazy and it makes it harder for people to read. Words like 'g8', 'txt' and 'l8r' are fine in moderation it's just when the whose sentence is trunkated (sp?) it gets annoying. We all use abbreviations but you don't need to type the whole post like that! rolleyes.gif

Ya'll know who you are! tongue.gif

You didn't but the actual slogan was ein Reich, ein Volk, ein Fuehrer.

Yep, the rules are worth refreshing on. I do tend to PM people if they use txt spk too often in their posts.

While there is no rule about _not_ writing in abbreviations it is very annoying to read. The form was created for mobile phones when people had a very limited number of letters to type their message in. This is the internet, there is no limit to the number of letters therefore correct English should be used. Although this does remind me of something... (goes off to make a poll)

I have to put up with a few friends who insist doing it over IM. dry.gif Most of the time over IM I don't capitalize the beginning of the sentence (but I do for "I") and maybe leave out a bit of punctuation. Phrases like "o" and "y" REALLY tick me. (It's TWO OR THREE LETTERS! Your poor, overused, frail fingers can't do that?) I'm happy to say I haven't seen TOO much of it on the forum. If I do I usually look over it and sigh.
