Numbering the forum rules so they're easy to reference off hand.
While reading through them again I noticed a couple that I have some specifics about.
- When posting, please use proper grammar. Refrain from 'text-message' style substitutions of words like 'u' for 'you', and 'ur' for 'your'. This is a multi-national forum, and some of our non-english speaking members must use translation software which is confused by abbreviations. Most of our volunteer members are very busy helping as many people as they can, and a post that is hard to read will often be overlooked.
Seeing as there are non English speakers. Are we allowed to use normally commonly used English turns-of-phrase or common English abbreviations such as "ETC" for "etcetera"? Reason being that they wouldn't translate very well, if not at all. (ETC being a bad example, but you get my point)
Also saw this-
- There will be no use of profanity on our message boards. This will not be tolerated and can lead to immediate suspension.
Was wondering if acronyms with vulgar words in the acronym are okay (like BFG). I used POS the other day without a 2nd thought to the idea that a cures is inlaid to it, but when going over the rules for a refresher and seeing the emphasis on no profanity....I quickly scanned back over my posts to make sure I hadn't done so recently and saw that.
I'd like to know if doing so is okay or not. From now on I'm going to assume it's not and watch my post more carefully. Some confirmation would be nice though.
