Newbie Welcome thingy

Well, I wrote this to welcome the newbies that come here so they know what is what and stuff. Tell me what you think and feel free to suggest stuff.

1) Never ask for or link to warez/crackz/serialz/pornography or sick images. This is a very serious offense. You can buy Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom, the Master Levels, Heretic, Hexen, Hexen : Death Kings of the Dark Citidel from the ID Software website. You can buy Strife from here.

2) Please try to use the proper forums when you create a new thread to save the Moderators the trouble of moving it ;)

3) The FAQ can answer a lot of questions you may have. It has an FAQ on the BB Codes which this forum uses. Colors, size and font are DISABLED.

4) the rules regarding images should tell you everything you need to know if you want to post images. You have to enable Show image attachments and img code in Posts? to show images, it is off by default.

5) Please do not reply to very old topics. If it older than say 3 weeks old, then do NOT reply to it.

6) Please do not exploit any forum bugs you may come across.

7) Spaming so that your username shows up as the last poster on the first page of any forum or all the forums is a big no-no.

8) Please do not be a prick. If you go around flaming everyone and being a general asshole, you'll probably get in some trouble.

9) Smilies, HTML and Private Messaging and posting attachments are DISABLED. Please do NOT use the img tags to post a smiley. They are disabled for a reason.

10) Please do NOT make threads to a specific person to communicate. Use e-mail, AIM, ICQ or Yahoo please.

11) The Doomworld Links Page contains many links for Doom, Doom 3 and Heretic/Hexen/Strife. If you're looking for a site, maybe you could find it here. You can also submit sites for review to be put up.

12) Please do not post in ghetto talk, ha><0r lingo or in CrAZy CApS. It makes your posts hard to read and you should remeber that not all of the users speak English as their first language so it may confuse them as well.

13) If you have some news, submit it to news@doomworld.com.

Looks like a FAQ to me


Yeah, it kinda is, but whatever. I plan on posting this in threads that people make when they first register. You know, those "hi I'm new here" threads. Lets them know what to do and not to do so they don't do anything bad and get banned.

Heh, yeah. "Whoa, that's a lot of rules! *runs in terror*". Oh well, may save a few people from getting banned.

Ok, I shortened it a lot. I decided to snip about the forums and I copied the URLs to the source ports and put them in another document.

Sounds good to me. Of course, you'll probably get some lamer/forum defamer that'll get confused somewhere, somehow whilst reading this FAQ, and will attempt to boost their postcount while posting asinine questions about it.
