Recently there has been abit of trouble with revival of old topics (posting in a topic that has not had a post in for longer than a month). We clearly state in the rules that this is not allowed. We would rather you created a new topic on the matter than revive an old one.

Alot of unpopular threads (topics with not many replys) have also been revived with pointless posts, not giving anymore thought or reason in replying, so if this is just for postcount or whatever I am unsure.

Please read the date of the last thing posted before replying, it is above every post. Generally, if its past the first 2 pages the thread catagory is older than a month, and should just be read, not posted in.

Please just take notice of this, and perhaps read through the rules again.

Yeah, yeah, it's gettin' annoying.

See the very top of every post? It should have the date of which it's been posted.

Unless it's something important for that topic (Such as, you know, a new release for a game series or something related to TNBC), don't post. Seriously.

If you want to say SOMETHING to SOMEONE about the topic (The topic creator, most likely), PM them and provide a link to the topic at hand, so they know what you're talking about.

Remember: If it's been a day since the last post, and you didn't post last, it's okay.

If it's been a week and you didn't post last, be cautious of what you're gonna put up.

If it's been two weeks to a month, it'd better be darn important.

If it's been a month, don't even think about it.


I think that's everything, Amelia. Just, ya know, making it clear. >_>

Yes, you're right Miracle.
I've been strolling through alot of threads recently, and of course there is a few topics that make an exception, perhaps have just got abit lost or people have not had content to post, they can be revived (examples being, the birthday topic & post your pictures). Its just please, use your brain more before you post. If its important, sure go ahead and post it in! But if its not, then leave it for another time when it is.
