Hello all!
So recently I have been checking out forums and seeing what’s up,
and maybe because I don’t really use the forums I see phrases people use that I want to be aware of e.g. necro-posting.
If there is a forum post that does explain the basics, that would be great.
Have a good week ya’ll.

Ew, who says ya’ll?

I don't know if there is a basics but I can tell you about some of the phrases:

Necro-posting: When someone replies to a thread that hasn't been replied to for over a month.
EG:
14th December 2015
.....
21st January 2016
...
Don't necropost.

Double-posting: When someone posts twice in a row on the same thread. (There's an edit button for a reason)
EG:
- Sarah2312
Blah Blah

- Sarah 2321
Blah Blah

Don't doublepost.

Basically follow the rules on forums, it explains more on the rules.

You can post more than once in games. Also when you’re quoting someone (like this) you can post twice BUT try to keep all your quotes in one post unless someone replies to the thread later.

-You can necropost on games but not anything else.

-The rules are basically the cf rules. No inappropriate profile pictures, statues (you’d know.)

-You can request a thread lock, if you don’t want your thread to be up anymore. Just edit the thread and request it and tag Nikki, Ev or Ecoya. Try not to tag the owners.

Anyways, enjoy the forums and welcome! If you have any other questions just PM me. (The mail box).
