Forum Etiquette

Below you will find some tips for posting here at B&G, I would not say they are rules because for the most part, they are not; there are merely guidelines to make your visits a little more productive, and your feedback a little more positive.

A little courtesy goes a log way here.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Please - Read the forums FAQ before posting for the first time.

2. Please - Search the other posts to see if your topic is already covered.

3. Please - Use a meaningful title for your thread. Please do not start a sentence in your thread title then finish it in the body of your posting.

4. Please - Do not use our forum to promote your product, service, or business. Or Blog, we have a blog feature here.

5. Please - Be civil. Personal differences should be handled through email or IM and not through posts displayed to everyone.

6. Please - Stay on topic.

7. Please - Ignore spammers, respond to them personally and not through the board, or report them. Please report them.

8. Please - In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members.

9. Please - Do not double post (post the same message twice in one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several forums).

10. Please - Act in a give and take manner; help others as often as or more than you ask for help.

11. Please - Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. In addition, one exclamation point is enough.

12. Please - When replying to a post, do not quote more from the previous post than you have to.

13. Please - Do not use someone else’s thread for a private conversation.

14. Please - Watch your sense of humor, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages. Please refrain from comments associated with suicide, or statements that could be offensive to other members.

15. Please - Do not post ”empty” or useless responses, such as just ”lol” or ”cool.” Only post responses when you have something to contribute. We have a "Like" button for this.

16. Please - Write concisely and do not ramble.

17. Please - Do add your ideas, thoughts, and or comments. Your input is all this site has to build with.

18. Please - Do not chastise newbies. Teach them.

19. Please - Use the Ultimate Smack Talk, Political, areas to discuss items that fall into those categories.

20. Lastly - Please - We are all very passionate about our Saints, the term Fan is an abbreviation of fanatic. We do not all agree, nor do we all care for everyone's view point; we should however respect each member of this forum as we wish to be respected. Please disagree if you do with out name calling, derogatory, inflammatory, or slanderous replies.

Thank you very much for visiting and contributing, the quality of the content on BlackandGold.com is directly attributed to the quality of our members and their postings.

Not in any way, shape, or form. I can think of 20-30 threads that some of these ideas might apply to, none of them yours.

Personally that's way too much feeling between two guys so I am going to just walk away.
