Threads Intro and Rave
Q. So you are saying that I cannot use my Intro/Rave thread to talk about something that interests me?
A. That depends... if it is about you personally then fine, but if it is relevant to a subject within another board then put it there.
Q. Can I talk about something like games or my favorite comic?
A. Well think about it, is that telling us more about you personally or does that belong in the Games and Comic boards? The answer is it belongs in the respective boards. Why is that so if it is something about me? Well, again, think about it. If you started a message in your intro thread about 'Spider-man' (as an example) then what is likely to happen... someone else is going to talk about Spider-man, and then the next person and the next person and soon it turns into a thread about Spider-man when there is already a thread in the Comics Board for [b]you to express how much you like Spider-man. The other way to look at it is this... someone is interested in getting to know who you are so they visit your Intro/Rave thread but instead of learning about you they are bombarded by rants about 'Spider-man'. I think this should give you an idea of why it is not a good idea if there is a board in existence for topics you want to start in your Intro/Rave thread.
Q. How will I know if I am not being constructive in my intro thread?
A. Your intro thread starts to look like messages that would be found in a chat room rather than intellectual posts where people can really get to know you better.
Q. Can I ask support questions in my Intro thread?
A. Yes, but ONLY after reading the FAQ board where MOST things are answered already. Also, if it is an individual functionality problem like error messages then you should contact the Administrator.
Q. I made a boo-boo in one of my messages and need a Moderator to change it, should I post that in my Intro thread?
A. No! There is a [Report] button on every message use it!
