A noob guide to posting on AD

Ok seeing as we have quite a few people on here that favor speaking out of their rear end rather than formulating constructive and/or amusing discussion, I will make a guide so that you all can stop making idiots out of yourselves.

1) Dont post accusations of things you know nothing about. When you dont know that alliances ABC are cooperating with each other, dont post anything that says they are cooperating. Rather, make a post inquiring as to whether these alliances are considering forming a block to help their mutual interests.

2) Form your replies and inquiries in coherent english. This is probably the biggest shortcoming, and it is amazing how far moderately accurate grammar will help give your post credibility.

3) If your name is Kjeldoran just stay away (sorry KJ, I couldn't resist)

Re: A noob guide to posting on AD

1 could be relative to two recent threads but in BOTH those threads, each claimed to have some individual experience that justified the claim (usually saying stuff like "when my galaxy got incoming..").

Besides, its post's that state political rumours that keeps the AD's boards burning with activity!

2's never gonna happen because net folk like us are lazy [email protected] when it comes to typing Plus for many on these boards, english is not their primary langauge.

That's probably the worst excuse ever, even if english isn't their primary language they should know that words like "sumthing", "u", "y", "some1", etc. isn't correct english.

In addition, many of people doing these mistakes, are english people that, for some reason, just isn't able to type proper english.

this is not a fight, this is some troll making a stupid joke hoping I'd take the bite, but he can have this one if that's so important to him.

This was attempted a long time ago. So long as there are people who are quick to be "offended," AD will never reach the heights (or lows) Helix suggests.
