    ORIQUETTE is an informal expression of the values of many members. They are found in most forums and discussion boards, i would like to introduce them here.

    Please abide by it the best you can.

    Please do,

    . Remember the human. When you communicate online, all you see is a computer screen. When talking to someone you might want to ask yourself "Would I say it to the person's face?" or "Would I get jumped if I said this to a buddy?"

    . Get involved more in the community forums, we will get to know you better there, life is not always so serious :)

    . Adhere to the same standards of behavior online that you follow in real life.

    . Read the rules before making a submission. These are found here

    . Moderate based on quality, not opinion. Well written and interesting content can be worthwhile, even if you disagree with it.

    . Use proper grammar and spelling. Intelligent discourse requires a standard system of communication. Be open for gentle corrections.

    . Look for the original source of content, and submit that. Often, a blog will reference another blog, which references another, and so on with everyone displaying ads along the way. Dig through those references and submit a link to the creator, who actually deserves the traffic.

    . Report any disrespectful post you find.

    In short, Be nice, don't harass and don't insult

    Thanks,
    The administration
