Mods, make this a sticky. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Here's to hoping that all of the old GD and PL regulars who were alienated by Ubi will enjoy a new home here.


Here 'tis:

http://acompletewasteofspace.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=4


We want to create an environment where everyone can feel free to express their opinions and insights. Such an environment will require a consensus from all members regarding behavior within the community.



DA RULEZ:


1. Don't post anything that would be illegal in the United States. Very simple. If you post something illegal or post something discussing illegal activities, you're banned.

2. Nothing "unsafe for work". Many people browse forums while they're at work, and the last thing we want is someone opening a thread with an inappropriate image on it and getting caught. If you feel the need to share pornography or otherwise "not work safe" images, link them and make note in the thread title that the thread contains images that might not be safe for work. If you post an inappropriate image, we'll edit the post to remove it.

3. Nothing racist or bigoted. There was some confusion about what was meant by "sarcastic" in the previous "rules" addition, so we're clarifying.

4. Try to be respectful. If you feel the need to really berate someone, do it via some method other than the public forum.

5. Don't even bother trying to post under other aliases. It is very easy for mods check your IP. If you do this, you'll be warned, then banned.

6. No images greater than 800x600. It is annoying to have to scroll over to read the rest of the thread because you felt the need to post an excessively large picture.

7. Absolutely NO impersonating anyone from Ubi or from the old PL. Anyone who does this will be banned permanently. If you are one of the "old timers" and someone here is posting under your old username, PM a mod immediately and we will take care of it.

8. This community contains people from all over the world. As such, there are a myriad of views surrounding every conceivable issue. As such, contention is bound to erupt on any of a number of issues. Debates will and can become heated. Foul language and insults are permitted, but they'll only make you look like an intellectual cripple. If you make a habit of making an *** of yourself, we'll start editing your posts to make them less stupid. If you continue, you'll be warned, then banned.



Our goal in all of this is to have lax moderation, letting the community police itself. However, this will require some trust from the community regarding the moderators. Since we're not going to try and craft rules that are absolutely explicit about what is appropriate and what is not, subjective judgment by the moderators will be the final word on everything that goes on. That being said, we will do all we can NOT to have to moderate.

There are a number of methods by which to contact moderators in the event you get a hair up your *** about something. Private messages are suggested.

Im leaving...on a midnight train to Georgia

Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, give an ear!
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name,
Your fautes I will proclaim,
Your doctrines I maun blame, you shall hear!
2. What is Right, and what is wrang, by the law, by the law?
What is Right, and what is Wrang, by the law?
What is Right, and what is Wrang?
A short sword and a lang,
A weak arm and a strang, for to draw!
3. What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife ?
To whet th' assassin's knife,
Or hunt a Parent's life, wi' bluidy war?
4. Then let your schemes alone, in the State, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone,
Adore the rising sun,
And leave a man undone, to his fate!
Burns

A Permanent link has been added in the header.

Thank you to Cowace for organising this and apologies that it has taken longer than hoped to add the link.

Great, I spotted the new yellow link at once! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

My sig is also a link to the forum.

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye
shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be
measured to you again.
