Let's keep the random one or two word posts from littering up the board. Also, please don't use those type of posts to boost your post count just for the sake of doing it. It's extremely hard (and frankly, a little annoying) to wade through a bunch of "okay" or "hee hee" or "yep" type posts. If you don't have anything to contribute to a post (like it doesn't apply to you because you play trumpet and the thread is about flutes), don't just post "I don't know" or "I play trumpet so I wouldn't know." It's a waste of a post and resources and just takes up space.
Also please do not "bump" threads so that they will go back to the top of the board. I know this is done on other internet message boards, but it's really not necessary here.
Remember, this is a bulletin board and not a chat room.
However, since there's not a chat room (yes, we've tried it before multiple times and it's never caught on), you are welcome to start a chat topic here in the Games & Chat board.
So what's the difference? Well, if you want to have a quick conversation like you would on instant messenger (AIM, yahoo, etc), then use this board to do so. Otherwise, use the other boards to have more in-depth conversations.
Private conversations that are NOT in the Games & Chat board (detailing specific information like meeting up at someone's house, at school, phone conversations between private people) need to go to private messages or to email.
I'll warn you once in the thread, 2nd time with a private message, and then the 3rd time, you will be banned for a month.
Confused? Probably? Just ask me if you need clarification.
