General Star Wars Rules
Yeah, I'm making the signature rule thread, but please, just follow the rules set out by Redemption, first and foremost. The below are more preferences that I have, but that might make your postings accross the site of slightly higher standard.
Remember, it's how people see you that makes the true impression, and I want you all to have some layer of respect that everyone in Neoseeker deserves.
1. Single Line Posts
[A - Multi-line Posting]
Yeah, a lot of posts can be completed in one line here, and that's fine, but why make it one when you can make it two? Add a little information, stand out in the crowd! A lot of you know a lot about Star Wars, show it off!
[B - Lengthening Replies]
As for replies like:
Why not make them longer?
It might take some practice, but having these sort of replies really brings up content in a forum. You can ignore this, but posting with more than one line and putting effort in your posts, really shows that you respect both your peers and the board, and respect for you will grow.
2. Making New Threads
[A - Off Topic Posts and Thread Creation]
Star Wars is a big universe, as anyone who has read any of the books, played any of the games or seen any of the comics, knows. That small bit in the movies was not enough to wet our buds, so we expanded a bit, and now we know how big this universe is.
This causes a lot of topics to, well, go off topic, with everything tied together. Never be afraid to make a thread if the other one is going off topic. People will still respond to the original topic and the new topic, just as long as you keep memberation out of it.
Proper instance for creating a new thread:
A thread on Leia on the Death Star. Hon Solo and Chewie come to the rescue with Luke Skywalker. The discussion adds on how heroic Chewie was. To avoid it going off topic, why not make a new thread, on how Heroic Chewie is, and leave Leia on the Death Star for the last thread.
Proper Beginning Post:
Hey! I saw that there was another topic coming up in the other thread about Leia, and I really wanted to make on about Chewie, so we can talk about him more, without going off topic.
See? Nice, simple, short, and your being a good samaritan. If you do follow this, congratulations! You've earned a little respect from me.
[B - Thread Duplication]
Every once in a while, we see a duplicate thread come up in the forum. While this happens regularily, this forum's index I did not finish as of yet, since I want to try out a new type of posting within the forum for a short time.
Original thread posters or new visitors might make a thread which is an exact duplicate of the thread in the archives. If you recognize it as duplicate, than please, redirect them simply with a link. However, follow the following little tidbits while doing so:
1. Use a link and a short, friendly message if you want. Don't say "Your thread is already created, go there." More along the lines of "Hey, there's a thread like this one here. Why not use it? " Then report it, or PM me, and I'll close it.
2. Make sure the thread matches perfectly for the other thread. If there's a general Yoda thread, and you link it from one asking about Yoda's skills, that is wrong. Do not do that. One is General, the other one is specific, and therefor seperate.
3. Reporting Posts
[A - Multiple Problematic Posts]
Hey, a lot of times, spammers lead to spamming and trolls lead to flaming. While I hope dearly that none of our regulars here take things into their own hands, I can't say for some of the newer members that might pop in. If a thread has loads of spam, report one example and say "Thread packed with spam", for example. If there's a flame war going on, "Flame War". No need to report forty posts.
[B - Reporting Comments]
As seen above, reporting comments can be useful, and I especially thank anyone who uses them usefully. I don't really want to see a comment of:
However, if you have any information, feel free to drop in into that box or PM me personally. I have no problem with that.
[C - Random Reporting]
Alrighty, this one is simple. Filling up my moderation queue is not funny. I will have to go through your crap to make sure nothing is wrong with the rest of the forum. It is rude and obstructing my work on this site, and in the case of emergencies, is intolerable. I see it? You're banned. As well as any other forums on the site. You've been warned, no moderation tool is something to fool around with.
There is currently one moderator of this forum. There are four active Super Moderators. Things should come to me first, but if I am not here, and I have no comoderator, things should go to the Super Moderators. All five of us can act on the Moderation Queue.

Yes, these are not so much rules as much as preferences, but please follow them. If you fill up this forum with substandard posts, then I will be forced to route you in a direction outside this forum for some time. However, as long as I see some good posts coming from you, your time here will be a good one.
Why is this thread staying open? I don't see why it really needs to be closed. You guys know not to post in it, and I can always delete any posts that pop up in here. Closing a thread seems like an oxymoron in a way.
However, there's a secondary reason. The thread in the Battlefront II forum was never closed either. This gives you all the chance to check out how I set up the post itself, through the quote button. If you want to toy around with it in this thread, fine, but I'll delete it the next day.
If you have any additions, queries, or questions, take 'em here. Any new rules will be announced through the thread subheader. Have fun posting!
