Don't be a twat


You have a knack for paraphrasing...

I've always been told that by people..hey..was that sarcastic by any chance? ;D
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Certainly good advice from Rad, infact, i think, this thread covers everything after that post...

but in seriousness, these comments can be fun sometimes, just don't over use them (not aimed at Rad or anyone in particular)

Try not to spam anywhere that isn't the spam section. At least, not until we figure out if we're going to get rid of it or not.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Punctuation is your friend.

'nuff said.

Things that rely on tone of voice to get across should be restricted until you are known.  Sarcasm and Irony just plain don't work in text.

(I put (sarcasm)  Or (Irony) after such things so that it's clear myself.  and anything with the :P smiley is not to be taken seriously.)

I'm not a "Spelling nazi."  that would be horribly hypocritcal of me, but at least try to keep things vaguely resembling english.

And as a personal pet peeve, using "Gay" to mean stupid is just not cool.

It's not a touchy subject, but my boyfriend isn't too keen on it.

Oh yah.. bashing lifestyles... I don't care if you don't like me because I"m bisexual and "Furry."  Just keep it off the forum.  Such things don't belong here, mmm'kay?

Well, perhaps not what I had in mind when I made this thread, though it certainly is an important requirement, too ;D

Edit: Lots of good contributions,people. Keep 'em coming! :) I'd post a few myself, but I'm too tired to think right now. Off to bed soon methinks...
<@Torp> I have seen your melted pussy!

It seems it has become part of English culture that gay describes something stupid now, it use to describe the sexuality of someone, and before that it meant 'happy', i guess words can't really evolve when they are describing someone on a personal level

Don't make posts like these, either.  ;)

If you're gonna smite someone, it might not be wise to say it first. ;)

*cloudstrfex smites Rad without telling him :D

Nah just kidding I wouldn't do that to you. :)

To newbies; don't take karma *too* seriously. ;p
(i) There will come a day when nothing you did matters. But it is not today. Here and now, you are alive.
(ii) Live well under your own authority.
(iii) Abolishing suffering is impossible. Lessening suffering is mandatory.
