Thread Etiquette Questions for Newbie
Hey, could someone please explain to me thread etiquette?
I googled it, but I don't care to learn about the etiquette amongst Lego aficionados.
I'm new to the internet and computers for a few months and believe it or not this is the first and only site that I post on....so is there an etiquette here, or is it just insane?
Any help appreciated.

Well we don't have a ton, this place is pretty wide open, but what I recommend is don't quote an enormous 2000 word post just to add, "I agree!" or 1 or 2 words...trimming the quote down makes the threads much more readable. Same goes for videos or pictures, not really needed to quote 5 videos or pics that are already on the same page just to add, "You rock dude"...Asisde from those recommendations?....pretty much just go for it.

Re: Thread Etiquette Questions for Newbie
posting porn of yourself can make you popular , or not .

99.5 % of the people do not give a shit about you, your issues , your opinions or whether you turn into a soylent pork rind when the solar flare hits.

the .4% of people that act interested in your posts, really just to want to keep you chained up as sex slave in the pantry.

the last .1% are aliens and want to stick insturments in your holes for research purposes only.

if you post something, at least wait for it to get off page one before you

bump it, if no one is responding too it


or

you can log off and pretend to be someone else, respond to it, commenting how awesome the OP is, and then log back in, and act really grateful for the nice response

And for god sake don't star a thread with just a video and no comment.

Give a little lead in, and always include a link along with the video.

Lots of people here can't see the embedded video and need the link to be able to see it.

If you want people to see it you may as well do it right.

Re: Thread Etiquette Questions for Newbie
Generaly, if you start a thread, monitor and respond kinda like you might be having a conversation, unless you're anti-social, having a bad day or something like unto that there sort of stuff, and don't use run on sentences like this unless you really want to. bat

Re: Thread Etiquette Questions for Newbie
Rule #1: Never, ever, ever take on the mods...no matter how right you are. If you disagree with something, just let it pass. If they zap a thread, chances are someone else already posted it, search and bump one of those threads. There are other ways of getting your way, but I don't feel like getting drop-kicked at the moment.

Rule #2: Nekked pictures make people smile, so feel free to post/PM/email them to any and all GLP members, especially those with the name falldown. Disregard this rule if putting A1 sauce on your balls wouldn't break the laws of physics or nature.

Rule #3: If you must quote a mile long article, format it...block print went out of style in the late 1700s. Screens are endless, you're not saving any paper by squishing everything together in one chunk of hell.

Rule #4: Try not to make things personal...or at least use a little style as you shred the putzes. Backhanded compliments work well, especially those that the other person won't figure out for 24 hours or so...but everyone else will rofl the moment they read it.

Rule #5: Thread stars, number of friends, and other "myspace" measures aren't important here. Don't have a pissy fit because you only have 83 friends, and someone you despise has 84. Myspace sucks, that's why we're here instead. Some people get kicks out of one-starring people they don't like, those people need to take up a more worthy hobby, such as bellybutton lint collecting.

Rule #6: Don't post numbered lists in a smug attempt to sound like you know wtf you're talking about.

Rule #7: Read and adhere to Rule #2 on a daily basis. grinning
