If you find this particular section of the wiki to be a place with a rather irreverent tone, well… you've come to the right place ! ;-)

General forum advice (please read)

First of all, we'd like to showcase some minor tech and etiquette advice concerning the board (newcomers should take note in particular):

Forum Rules and Guidelines

Where do I start ?

How do I move a thread ?

Why is thread necromancy frowned upon ?

Plagiarism is NOT tolerated on

A mod's succinct summary of why people get kicked or banned for nastiness, not opinions

A succinct summary on how to use the report function responsibly and avoid abusing it

Even backhanded insulting of others is actionable - don't think you can get away with it

Public Forum - A thread where you can discuss things with the mods and admin or file a complaint to them, if you're so inclined.

How to use the search function - The inevitable question asked by many people, particularly newcomers. Please read this article to get a good idea on how to use the search function of the board's forum software.

Donations for the forum's basic upkeep - These are fully voluntary donations and are only used for paying the annual bills for hosting the site and occassional minor tech upgrades. There are no special privileges for contributing a donation, as has an egalitarian policy towards all its users.

OK, once you've read that, be our guest and proceed….
