[General Chatter Rules] - Updated 5/11/13
« on: September 09, 2012, 04:54:49 pm »

Welcome to General Chatter! This Section of the forums is dedicated to discussion about anything and everything (within reason). The fact that you clicked on this thread probably means you care at least a little about the rules, so pat yourself on the back for being a good law-abiding member. Now, let's move on.

1. Thread Guidelines
2. General Posting Guidelines

4. Meet the Moderators

◘◘◘ 1. Thread Guidelines ◘◘◘

GC (General Chatter) threads are used to discuss the main hot topic present in its OP (Opening Post). As such, try to make it extremely clear what your particular thread is about by describing it in both the subject title and the opening post. There are multiple ways of doing so: you can state your opinion on a given fact or recent occurrence, then prompt people to discuss it, you can post a video about something you found out to be interesting and explain in the first post what exactly made you think or reflect on, you can start a so called "forum game" by giving out the instructions and the goal of it, then ask people to join in, and so forth.

These kinds of thread topics are acceptable:
Trivial things
• Whether it's recent news or something random, make sure the topic is broad enough to prompt more than a few one-liner responses.
Forum games
• Hurt and Heal, Interview the person below you, and other games that ties posting into its gameplay are all fair game (no "Last Post Wins" threads, please).
Help/advice requests• Keep in mind that an Art board and a Gaming Discussion board also exist on this forum; make sure that your help request threads end up in the right section (for instance, don't ask here about why your PS3 doesn't work).
Board games, sports

• These topics do not belong in Gaming Discussion, so post them here.
These threads may be locked under the discretion of the moderators:
Blog posts
• If you feel you MUST post a thread about your life, make sure said blog post is within good taste and substantial enough to be discussed at length.
YouTube videos
• Don't just post a single YouTube video because you found it funny/interesting. Post it in IRC or something if there's nothing worth discussing about it.
Politics• Politics threads will be locked if they get out of control, just like any other thread.
Existing topics• If a recent/active thread detailing something very similar already exists, you will be warned.
Advertisements• "Advertisement threads" will be locked if there isn't anything of substance coupled with them.
Polls

• Polls should act as a supplement to a thread's topic. Make sure you use them to gather opinions, not personal information.
These will be probably deleted without warning:
Illegal material
• Gang Garrison 2 Forums is hosted on a German server, so it is necessary not only to abide by your own country's law but German law as well. In other words:
  - DO NOT POST or ask for pirated material
  - DO NOT POST symbols/images of Nazis or the Third Reich
  - DO NOT POST images/texts depicting lolicon/child porn
For more details, please see the General Forum Rules.
NSFW content
• Porn, gore, and anything considered illegal, immoral, and generally "not safe for work" is not allowed.
Personal attacks
• Realize that your post count will probably go down if you spend an entire night posting threads that read "fuck I hate member x they're such a y they should z my b and then h their family member p."
Intolerant remarks• Racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination do not have a place in General Chatter, much less in a thread topic.
Obvious trolling• Threads without a point of discussion or substance will be locked. "I think Hitler should have killed Jesus because he was totally asking for it and should've gotten raped discuss."

◘◘◘ 2. General Posting Guidelines ◘◘◘

Make sure every time you post in General Chatter, you are providing substance to the conversation at hand. Naturally, these rules also apply to the opening post.

You can contribute to a thread by posting:
Opinions
• Opinions about the subject or replies to other opinions are okay, as long as the argument is discussed in a civilized manner.
Questions
• Questions concerning the subject at hand, such as asking for clarification on the subject or prompting a user to support a claim.
Requests for help/tips• For example, you might ask users about the interview process in the "Jobs & Money-making Thread".
Forum game replies• Please be sure to follow the rules the OP sets for said game.
Images

• Make sure they are interesting, useful, informative, or funny. But most importantly, make sure they are relevant.
Post these with discretion:
Curses/swears
• Swearing is allowed, as long as the poster is not targeting/offending any other user.
Large texts/images• Large blocks of text or a chain of images can take up quite a lot of screen space. use the spoiler tags () to condense your post.
Quoted Images• Goes hand in hand with the above. Quoting large images or texts take up a lot of unnecessary space, or at worst, large "quote pyramids".
Improper grammar
• Improper grammar should only be used in a comical sense, or in the case English is not your first language.
Jokes• Keep them tasteful and clever.
Advertisements• Any advertisement that has nothing to do with the topic will probably be deleted on the spot.
Reaction pics• Posting reaction images is highly discouraged because 9/10 it will make you look like a bloody fool. Posting a reaction image more than once or twice may be considered spamming. If you MUST post one, at least try to be creative and make your own.
Off-topic posts
• If everybody in the thread gradually moves to a different topic, that's fine. However, try not to hold your oregano discussion with your friend Ricky Tickler in a thread about decantering wine.

Don't post these:
Illegal materials,
NSFW content,
Personal attacks,
Intolerant remarks,
Obvious trolling

• (see Thread Guidelines)
Smiley Spam
• Don't try to say you're doing it for the sake of being ironic. You're not a hipster and the mods will not buy it either.
Spam in general• Posting text, pictures, or posts in excess is not allowed.
Ragefaces• Back to Reddit/9GAG/anywherebuthere with you. lel xd

I never got that myself, it's posted in frequent enough to stay on the first page. Keeping it stickied is a bit redundant.
