HOORAY!

Postby Winchester » Wed 04 Apr, 2012 05:31

Rule One: Treat everyone except for those you reasonably know for certain are not idiots with a healthy dose of disdain. Getting buddy-buddy with idiots makes you an idiot by association, while remaining snarky and capable of throwing a few well-aimed barbs at social outcasts makes you cool.

Rule Two: Master the art of the quip. Learn it. Breathe it. Drink it. Live it. The quip is your weapon when you want to get your name into a thread, but there either isn't anything worth discussing/that you are capable of discussing or else the thread is infested with idiots.

Rule Three: Only textwall when you have something intelligent and relevant to say. Few things turn people off as fast as an irrelevant block of text. Don't believe me? Search Silver Surfer's posts.

Rule Four: Leave the crazy at the door. Avoid ALL CAPS, excessive YouTube links, emoticons, txtspeak, colors, and failed attempts to quote people. Furthermore, use passable spelling and grammar. Do not use the enter key as a replacement for punctuation. Know the most common spelling/grammar mistakes (their/they're/there, for example) and be careful to avoid them. Try to sound like you graduated middle school.

Rule Five: Memes, except for when used sparingly and snarkily, make you look like an idiot. Don't use them. The one possible exception is forum-specific memes, but only if they are text only, and not images.

Rule Six: Do not fanboy, roleplay tard, or treat the internet as serious business. You are not Master Chief. *beep* off.

Rule Seven: If you have nothing witty, intelligent, or relevant to add to a thread, do not post.

Rule Eight: There is no honor on the internet. Deal with it, or get out.

Rule Nine: Do not attempt to shock people by being racist, crude, inflammatory, etc. It just makes you look like an uneducated imbecile.

Rule Ten: If you are going to troll, do it right. Don't pretend to be an idiot; don't gloat; don't ever break character; don't claim that anyone got trolled/that you are a troll; don't think that excessive = better; don't think that annoying someone = trolling someone; etc.

you should have just said

"/newfag trap


GTFO"

and been done with it.

1st rule of TT for newfags: GTFO
2nd rule of TT for newfags: if you are to not going to GTFO, then lurk moar
3rd rule of TT for newfags: dont post until you learn how and if you dont, dont get butthurt when you get stomped on/learn from your mistakes
4th rule for newfags: dont ever ask if you are still a newfag. you are! when this changes you will be told
5th rule for newfags: if you fail to meet with any of the above rules and catch the attention of certain TT members for constant painful newfaggoty, please fight back when flamed and trolled to ensure you will join the long line of those that were exiled from TT with their tail between their legs

I'm spectacular at giving examples of what not to do, but this time I should just reference my posts for the baseline between acceptable and annoying. Only thing that bothers me is the Off-Game threads in Trash Talk, Ribbentrop. This is a forum-wide way of improving everyone's posting.

I would like to move for an amendment for Rule six.

If you do roleplay, make sure it is with dedication and is likeable.

Rule 6; Section B - Article 1: Appreciation for Role-play posts varies to the section of the forums you post in. Refrain from posting in a thread filled with people that do not enjoy the work or Role-play in general. Instead you at least post the story in a proper section of the forums. Role-play, although discouraged, helps the poster communicate better with increasing their vocabulary, description, and person-to-person talk. Please. At least have a grasp of the English language before attempting to write a Role-play situation though, posters may degrade your capabilities if you do not properly execute a decent story.

Sorry, but all the "intelligent" people are already successful at foruming.

There is no point in these ten rules, considering the majority of the people here will not follow them, because we are retarded individuals that lack the capacity to change and adapt to that change. And this includes following other people's advise.

My approval/disapproval has change the posting behavior of others before. Just saying.

But in any case, I didn't intend for this to be stickied. I just felt like writing it.

That, and most of us are not anywhere near done with their education. I still see probably 6 years in my future. Even more if I actually decide to do doctorate. I've been encouraged by most of my teachers, including a few doctors themselves, that I am destined to get the doctor title.

Canshow, benbelgam and some of the others here clearly believe that rule seven and rule nine don't belong at Trash Talk. Canshow and benbelgam are attached to the hip and have a strong addiction to the internet to prove what big, strong men they are.

All you need is a rubber band and paperclip to make these little punks run for cover.
