...lies MegamanX2K. Oh, and this thread.
Anyway, I doubt I'm the only one who gets annoyed at certain types of threads, so perhaps this thread can serve as a harbinger of doom to newbies before they just go out and make an ol' post. So here's some words of wisdom as to the kinda threads you shouldn't start if you want to make a good impression:
1. Linking to Bob and George or 8-Bit Theatre. Odds are every fucking person here knows thatthey exist; if they don't visit them on a regular basis it's probably for a good reason (or laziness). Lesser known comics is a different matter, but this is just spam.
2. Linking to FF sites/asking for a link to said type of site on the FFC board. That's preety much an insult to Cid and all the hard work he's done to make the FFC. It's ok if it's a specialized site devoted to just one game, or FF Music, I guess, but otherwise it's just plain rude.
3. Making a welcome post on the FFC board. This is kinda silly, and may be chalked up to newbiness; some newbies who don't realize RPGClassics exists and only went to FFC may think it's the only board. But it's better to post on the main board and get everyone to know you.
4. Polls that ask stuff like "What is the best FF game of all time?!" etc. OLD. Use some god damn creativity.
5. Posting about a non-PC game in the PC games forum. I dunno why but people occasionally do it. Probably for the same reasons people bring 16 items to an 8 item express lane.
6. Posts meant for PMs. No explaination neccessary. PMs are there for a reason.
7. Posting solely for the purpose of pointing out that Bush is an idiot. Yeah, see, we kinda figured that one out on our own. The man had an epileptic seizure after choking on a pretzel. If the entire human race was like that, family BBQs would be the #1 cause of death in this country. Posting to bitch about a specific policy's one thing, but it doesn't take much of a brain to figure out he ain't got...well, much of a brain.
8. Making some angsty post about not being able to figure out women. Sorry, bub, but the past 2000 years haven't turned up much on that mystery, a 25.6k ain't gonna be much help.
That's all I can think of for now, feel free to add on to your heart's content.
