    Please do not post useless posts.

    Please post threads that CONTRIBUTE something.

    Example of a BAD post:

    Example of a better post:

    Other examples of useless posts:

    We all make mistakes, but please try not to.

    If you do it many, many times and have been warned many, many times, be aware of possible punishments:

    - your post count cut in HALF or set back to 10.

    - having all of your posts be approved by a moderator before appearing (yep, this sucks)
    - and if after being sent into the moderation queue, you mostly post useless posts for us to verify, we will seperate you from the allalias.com community (yes, this really sucks)
    - all future member accounts you create will be banned - we can trace you by your IP, which stays the same no matter how many accounts you create

    However, we don't want to take these actions. We just want this community to be one that isn't full of useless fluff.

    Thanks!

    It is a number which identifies you on the internet. For example, yours is (EDITED BECAUSE IT POSES A SECURITY RISK). Unless you have a dynamic IP, your identifies you and you alone.
