M'kay, hi. In case you don't know me (aka the newbies) I'm WiteoutKing, CulT Family member and moderator of Shit Talk. For the most part, I will be doing no moderating whatsoever. You guys are pretty cool with keeping things below critical mass. However, sometimes people overstep the boundaries of "cool" and step into the region I will from here on call "not cool".

So, for the newbies (and for the oldbies for that matter), here's a list of things that would fall into these two categories. The rules are lax, and that's an understatement, but I will do shit on occassion if things get out of hand.

NOTE: Obviously, CulT Posse and Admins do not need to abide by these rules, for (among other things) they can pull rank, edit MY shit, and re-do whatever they did before.
HOWEVER, if someone flat-out abuses this, it will still be locked.

So, let's take a look at what's "cool" and what's "not cool".

cool:

1. Keeping a level head
If you explain yourself in a clear, concise manner and don't look like an idiot, people will listen to you. Don't assume that people want to see "attitude", and for the love of God, don't pretend to act like the oldbies if you're not.

2. Relevant material
Post about things people will be interested in hearing. Attract more people to your "cause" and you'll likely get better responses, and will be less likely to be a victim of Thread Fuckery*
* Thread Fuckery = When people get pissed and spam / fuck up your thread.

3. Sympathetic viewpoints
Be courteous of the other people posting and reading. It would be wise not to post something that would outright offend the entire board. It would be especially unwise to say something that would piss off the administration. And if you're a newbie, odds are you know very little about them. So be on the safe side and don't do it at all.


not cool:

1. Ruining people's threads
Don't run through people's threads in a (futile) attempt to destroy it. It's pointless, it's stupid, I can delete your posts, and it makes people hate you. Save yourself the trouble and leave if you're only here to start shit.

2. Political extremism (also known as the Chazman Clause)
DON'T. START. SPEWING. POLITICAL. EXTREMIST. SHIT. Just don't. At all. Ever. Under any circumstances. Political discussion is fine. Political debate is fine. Jumping into Shit Talk and making a thread called "THIS IS WHY I HATE BUSH THIS WEEK" or "WHY I LOVE MY PREZZIE" is completely inappropriate and unacceptable and it will be deleted on sight. And that's final.

3. Bigotry
Don't be a fucking bigot. In any of its forms. The oldbies mess around with this. That is fine. But newbies, for the love of God, don't even attempt it. I may or may not act on it, but others will. And you don't want that.

4. Spamming
Plain and simple. Don't spam. You spam, you pay. That's all there is to it. This ALSO includes making topics about really stupid shit, like "MAN THAT STRONGBAD EMAIL SUCKED!!!11". That is also spam.


So, just try not to be a complete moron and you should be fine. Have fun bitching.
And if you haven't already, read The 10 CulTmandments and The Idiot's Guide To Posting At SCARZ

These are not hardened rules, these are guidelines for safety's sake. If you act like an ass, you are likely to be put into the SCARZ Bitch group, potentially banned. I'll be sure of this.

Good day.

Alrighty Tardy-McTarderson. I would say this is totally asisine, but seeing as you are hellbent on proving that you are more than qualified to take a more authoritative position, I'm game. I will back you up on this little project of yours, hell I'll even enforce these. Let's see you got what it takes.

The fact that shit talk is now a policed board, everyone is just going to spread their stupidity everywhere else... but i'm sorry, i'm just doin' a bit of predicting the future I do too much of.

Have fun kids.

I am not policing this board.

This post serves two purposes:

1. It keeps newbies from making COMPLETE fools of themselves.
2. It lets the others know, without any confusion, what I won't put up with. It's very little, and very specific.

I hardly EVER enforce these to begin with. I don't intend on nazimodding (I've been against that since I got here two years ago) and I don't intend on exacting revenge on anyone.

I don't care much for "climbing the ladder", and I wouldn't use this as some kind of "I think this proves I deserve X rank" fodder.

But it's good to have someone backing me up on this, even though you may not find it the best of actions. Thank you for that.

I'd generally have to agree that "shit" shit has to go somewhere, but some kind of order has to be maintained...

Unless you begin to prove anything contrary to what you say... then this might be prove to be somewhat enlightening on each of our parts.

Since when do we care about n00bs anyway? If they screw up we make fun of them and humiliate them infront of the rest of the board. Where's the problem?

I think it's a sorta psychological... Save a n00b and he will then, in turn, be redeemed from his curse of infinite, everlasting n00beronimy.

It's like that show on NBC... "My Name is Wok"

If you ask me all the guidelines this forum needs (aside from the forum description being already out in the forum listing) is a an emphasis on the no idiocy rule (if we still have that in the ruleset anyway). By that I mean no omfg lol everyday crap threads like "I SLIPPED ON A BANANA AND HURT MY PINKY I AM SO SAD NOW" but would actually require people to post things that are interesting and would force them to actually write up a story and such so we know what's up.

That, and that this is the forum for flamewars.
