This is just a simple guideline that should help you determine where threads should go in some of the more popular forums here in BFC Of course, the moderators will move a thread if they feel it should warrant it.
The Don’t Do It List
Do not discuss knives in this forum!!! Show info and get-togethers threads are permited.
Do not post links to threads from Whine & Cheese and The Pirates Cove in the Community Forum or any other forum outside of these two.
Do not use foul or offensive language. This includes abbreviations or acronyms.
Do not copy paste your forwarded chain emails, articles, videos YOU think everyone wants to see, or jokes into the Community Center Forum. We don't like to get them in our inboxes and we sure don't want to read them on BFC. If you feel the need to pass it along send it to your family.
Do not use the jerk-it smilie in Community. It is a sure way to get your thread moved to W&C or The Cove.
Do not post “Link & Run” threads. Either have an opinion on the topic you posted about or don’t post it.
Do not hassle the moderators of the forum if they move, edit, or close your thread.
Do not post threads that clearly do not belong in Community and continue to do so after you have been warned.
Do not insult or berate other members of the forum.
Do not post SPAM. This is my pet peeve. Post anything of the sort and you will lose your privileges on BFC.
BFC now has an infraction system in place. Failure to follow the rules set by BFC Admin. Spark and the rules that apply to the Community Forum will result in an infraction being given. Get enough of them and you'll wind up getting banned either temporarily or permanently. So watch what you say, where you say it, and who you say it to. Be mindful of the forum you are posting in.
