Anybody think we could use some rules of engagement??

1. No Flame dedicated threads - this isn't the lounge fool! No fake SPOOF threads.
2. Your opinion will be criticized - do not take it personally.
3. DON'T GET PERSONAL.
4. Don't bring religion into the argument.
5. Make your best effort not to post something that's been done 100 times already (use the search function!).
6. Don't post information you don't want people to know.
7. Opinions are not facts - and expect them to be criticized.
8. Threads should ask questions or report news and information - this isn't your personal blog.
9. There should be a limit on how many new posts a user can create in a day.
10. Do not argue about PS3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Wii and which is better.
11. No more "X reasons why Y will be Z" threads.
12. Don't start a new (repost) thread just to link to a story on another website. If it's an update on a game people have been waiting for, there's probably another thread here talking about it (use the search function).
13. News Threads should have as much of the actual "news" as possible. Not just links to other sites. If possible try to copy paste as much of the story as possible.
14. Cite whenever possible.
15. People need to calm down and not get all worked up over small things.
35.b If you want to talk about Guns in the GL...please create an official GUNS thread for that discussion.


Feel free to edit the crap out of this "working list".

Yeah, that guy was awful...? Kinda wish I knew, but whatever.

But there should be a rule added about keeping a sense of humor and examining the obviously absurd through a filter of your own best judgement before going all apoplectic and getting your balloon knot entirely stretched out of shape. I recall that having happened several times.

Left4Dead has spelling fail, the PS3 is as overpriced as XBL/NXE, Halo still sucks, FFVII is for fags, I found the code in Bioshock for unlocking Ayn Rand as a playable character but I'm not tellin' cause I hate you all, but not as bad as Microsoft who will never, ever let you play the 360 Val Halen.

My main thing with this is....how will it be enforced?
I wish forums had active Mods, like ones that scan the threads for trouble before alerts and such come into play. Good thread btw.

It sucks that a someone can make bad threads over and over, flame and taunt people, claim to be persecuted, and then start mod alerting when they get offended. Not sure there's much you can do about that.

Nonsensical threads should be reserved for the truly confused individuals who make the occasional post as they are usually the funniest anyway.
so why do you do it then???? vomit laugh out loud

Haven't we already been through this? I'm not sure why you can't understand.
