QU13E Posting Guidelines
You now have your own forum. I'm here to remind you of the most important guidelines regarding posting to these boards:
- Please refer to the general unFiction posting guidelines here.
|NEW - New in-game website, phone number, or e-mail from the game.
UPDATE - Use this when an in-game web site, voicemail number or e-mail autoresponder has changed its content. Feel free to put in dates as well, but don't [TAG] them. (DO NOT POST OLD NEWS USING "NEW" OR "UPDATE"!!!)
SPEC - Speculation. You think your post might be right, and some evidence supports your view, but the point is not conclusive.
PUZZLE - A post about game-related puzzles, passwords, UAMs, credit numbers, voicemail codes, etc. If you know the answer, add the word SOLUTION to your subject as well.
EVENT - For any real world events/meetings which happen.
INTERACTION/INT/EMAIL/PHONE – All character interaction should be labeled with this. If you are posting an INTERACTION or EMAIL from a character, go ahead and just [ quote ] it. Save the [ spoiler ] for solved puzzles.
REFERENCE or REF - Use for threads which contain a catalog of relevant information about the game, such as site, character, and contact information (or similar) lists.
SOURCE - Analysis of the HTML source code underlying game-related pages.
QUESTION or Q - Use this label when you have a factual game-related question which you are fairly certain that the group can answer, or for answers to other QUESTIONs.
TRIVIA - Facts about the game which COULD be relevant, but which, as far as you can tell, probably aren't.
META - Discussions of what the moderators are doing wrong, new labels we should use, how people ought to play the game, or about the Unforums organization generally.
OT - This post is totally unrelated to the game (Off Topic). Posts like this can actually go elsewhere, because of the diverse sections of Unforums.
HUMOR - A post which is teh funny.
If you are responding to the message immediately above, you don't need the quote the ENTIRE post, just respond. If you are responding to a long post, you don't need to quote the ENTIRE post, just the specific point.
If you are having difficulties or have a specific question, post your question in the appropriate thread. Then, if it is solved, please send your THANKS via a PM, no need to add more "noise" to the threads. We already know you are grateful for the help.
If you are going to have a conversation (posting back and forth because you can't access chat) with another member, please take it to PM.
If you have recently posted a spec or information, then something new comes up, you can EDIT your previous post rather than adding another new one (especially if it is just one or two lines).
Please try and keep the forum as tidy as possible, which is mostly done by using the Search function to see if what you want to post is not already being discussed! You'll find the Search function at the top right-hand side at all times.
Looks like you are all having a great time with this game, so keep it up!
