    Attention Links to 'external stories'

    There has been considerable discussion re: posting of links with no info which has lead to some frustration. While we totally encourage posting threads of all sorts to encourage discussion - or laughs! (especially in the offseason) - there are a few things we'd like to ask:

    1. Rather than just posting a link, please copy the first few sentences or paragraph and add that to the post. That way anyone who reads the thread can see if the want 'the rest of the story'.

    2. Try not to put everything and anything that you find up as a new thread. Most of us do have Digg or Newsvine or some other news service so we tend to see a lot of the stories elsewhere. I'm not say to stop putting things up, just use a little discretion.

    3. When posting an article or part of one, please ensure to include some credit info (author, source) and/or a link to the originating site.

    Thanks!

    Sorry Jack; couldn't resist! It's a video on how to behave in an Internet forum, by the way. Mentions E4E once or twice

    That's a beauty Glen
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    That is an awesome find glen... and I think the forum should be proactive in their approach to dealing with teenagers, and perma-ban Numberz!

    Harsh perhaps, but it's for the good of all involved
    Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

    Hey now... I'll stick up for 'Berz! The kid's o.k. in my books... compared to when he started on here! *shudder* Oh the horror of the 'what I had for lunch' thread!

    Regardless of half this thread making fun of me....I'm glad that hopefully I won't have to see 7 new threads every hour about random things with no description.

    Just thought I'd bring this out :
    Step 6:
    Respect the Admins
    It's their website, and they can do whatever the hell they like with it. You're a guest, and hassling them about how they run things is akin to going round your Auntie's house and curling one out in her tea-pot
    .

    The post count thing was funny. I, of course, thought of E4E right away, because he is a better person than myself
