    So I'm not allowed to say in the shiny discussion thread something like:
    "I just got a shiny in a ROM hack I was playing!"?

    No; it's taking an image off google or anywhere else and claiming that you made it when you didn't for instance. (Look at it this way - what if you posted your art/story on the internet and then someone stole it and pretended they were the ones who did all your hard work?)

    More strict rules? Glad to see that things will be much more enforced. I don't break rules, and never will. I've only broken one rule since registration, and I got only a warning, no points. But that was in November 2009.

    These rules aren't strict. If you want to know strict, how does a single infraction = ban sound?

    I think the rules are actually kind of lenient. You guys are lucky you wern't here when I was starting out. Before these rules.

    I think this is good. The highlight is upping the points from 3 to 40 on providing links to downloads of illegal content. 3 points wasn't gonna stop anyone before. 40 might.

    I've seen users going around threads in GPD providing links to correct threads. Yet no one tells them they're doing anything wrong and they don't seem to stop. I don't even think they're getting warnings or infractions. Is this normal?

    I will never infract someone for trying to be helpful.

    However I will gladly infract *inB4lock* or other similar stupidity. Pointing a new member in the right direction with links will not be punished.

    Like me! Ellie's method to madness pays off and I haven't broken rules in so long. This is my first and only forum and I'm game with making SPPF a place to hold hands and rejoice in a world of rainbows.

    it is safest if you just don't reply. some mods may not infract you for being helpful, but the definition of "helpful" is fairly loose. it can be a slippery slope from helping newbies to being annoying and replying to spam. there's also the chance that you could be wrong, and misinforming a newbie is worse than not doing anything. plus, while you (general you, not directed at anyone in particular) might see your actions as being helpful, a mod may see it as being annoying and spammy, depending on the circumstances.

    if you REALLY want to help someone and know for 100% sure that you are right, i would suggest vming or pming them the proper info. doing that and reporting will never get you an infraction (unless you are sending false reports but that's another story)

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    What's the problem with dead threads and why shouldn't they be posted into?

    1)Assuming you mean threads that haven't been active for a month...people aren't allowed to bump those simply because it causes a mess. If you really think the topic needs to be brought up again, you can post a new thread.
    2)Posting links to the correct thread for certain subjects is technically minimodding, so as Ellie said, it's probably safest not to do that. That said, I won't infract someone for it as long as it's just the one person doing it(as opposed to a chain of people going WRONG THREAD GO POST IN THIS ONE). It's all a matter of how much of it is you actually being helpful and how much of it seems like regular old spam with just a whiff of helpfulness tossed in. Ideally, redundant threads would have no replies at all or just one reply with "Sorry, but this belongs over here."

    So should we VM/PM the person who has made a wrong thread and give a link to the right thread, then report their thread? That seems like less bother to the mods since it helps them delete less posts.

    I find it helpful. If someone links the person to the right thread and tells them what they did wrong I can just quote the post, and lock it saving me 30+ seconds per thread (this adds up).

    It is a pain when people say a member is breaking the rules when they aren't. If you can be helpful fine, but remember you aren't a mod. If you try to do our job (saying something should be locked etc) its annoying.


    tl;dr version

    I will not infract helpful posts, but annoying, spammy posts (inb4lock / someone should close this / read the rules nub) will warrant an infraction. I can't speak for the other mods though.

    again it's probably better to just not do anything at all and let a mod handle it. we will get to it eventually and give them the proper info. that way you also arent potentially misinforming people either.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Kk. I will report, but don't worry. I would point them in the right direction.

    Yes, I believe that is what that means. Making an alternate account when your old one got banned.
