There are written rules to this forum, but thankfully they dont seem to ridgidly followed which allows for some interesting topics! But what are the unspoken rules? Im asking this because I reckon Ive pissed a good number of people off on these forums without managing to get banned through my argumentitive/vicisious nature.....

It's probably a really bad idea to: a). insult the forum, b). insult the moderators, c). insult the forum's subject, d). insult the forum's users, or e). insult the subject's creator. This isn't to say that legitimate complaints aren't allowed, its just that people who get waaaaaaaaaay too carried away with themselves (and their opinions) should feel the wrath of the establishment.

The "golden rule" is helpful for all social interactions including forums: "Do unto others (online), as you would have them do to you (in real life)."

1. Don't whine
2. Don't post pics with fat women
3. Don't be he who'll lock the thread.
4. Don't be a smartass if you're the first to reply. Wait a little bit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.
5. Never post larger than 1024 width pics.
6. Re-read what you're about to post. If in doubt don't.

and the golden rule:
It's a coffee-break forum. Don't mess with others' beliefs nomatter how wrong they seem or are.

Rule #1 Don't piss off people.

Rule #2 See rule #1

Exceptions to the rules include LeadSpitter, Copperhead, Arcadeace, Baldie, Proffessor06, and of course Gibbage, but all in moderation.

I once read where a;

"Gentleman, is someone who is not just polite (which is false etiquette), has consistent manners nor is soft spoken or soft in opinion......Yet one who strives no matter how intense the situation to make all others feel comfortable & secure in that situation even if they have taken an opposing viewpoint."

Take that for what you will.

Mention the Westland Whirlwind at every opportunity. It's considered very polite around here.

"4. Don't be a smartass if you're the first to reply. Wait a little bit Razz."

Sometimes i cant help doing this, even though i know i shouldnt http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I didnt realise we had etiquette on this forum?

For me its pretty much a free-for-all, but then again, im not a very extreme person, im quite normal, compared to CWOS this place is sterile lol

Nice bunch here though, cant faulter the regulars, or the mods....

Don't diss anyone's signature, no matter how tempted you may be. Unless, of course, the sig has a picture of fat women in it.
