There have recently been an increasing number of repeat threads, cases of people not searching, and rude replies to these threads. None of this is acceptable to the moderating staff. The following behaviors are now grounds to receive a warning/infraction.
1. Making duplicate threads
2. Making a thread on a subject that's been asked already (we expect you to search)
-If we close your thread and give you an infraction, we will link you to the most recent thread where your question was answered. If this happens again, you will simply receive an infraction.
3. Rude replies. No matter who you are, if you reply in a way that is deemed disrespectful to anyone in the thread or previous posts by the moderating staff, you will receive an infraction. Yes, I know it's tempting sometimes, but we can all be polite and grown-up about this.
-If you feel that you didn't deserve the infraction, PM the mod that gave you the infraction and talk to them. We're all reasonable people.
We can't be everywhere at once. If people could please report posts that violate these rules instead of simply replying that would be extremely helpful. Keep in mind, these rules are applicable from here on out. We will NOT be applying them retroactively.
