Welcome Room Rules -- THIS FORUM IS NOT FOR GAME HELP! (ALL REGULARS MUST READ)

As it appears to have been moved along with the threads intended to be purged, this thread is being created to remind everyone of the basic rules of The Welcome Room forum. Before we get to that, we need to discuss the first and most important rule of this forum:

This Forum Is Not For Game Help!*

*This is the golden rule, and something to keep in mind whilst posting here. If you need game help, please review the GameWinners Forum Directory and look for the forum you need. If the particular game you are looking for is not listed, then check the General Game Help forum, where you can post your questions and more than likely get the answers you seek.

NOTE FOR REGULAR POSTERS: Read Rule C.4. plus Addendum and adhere to it. This is of vital importance in the Welcome Room, and it has valid reasons.

Ruleset Reminders:

-Threads Have a 3 Day Time Limit: So as not to avoid as much chaos as possible, and to ensure that everyone has the chance to have their Welcome Thread seen and responded to, all threads will be closed 3 days after being posted.

-No Copy/Paste Generic Welcomes: Anyone that tries to boost their postcount by providing generic copy/paste welcome messages will be cautioned, and then on the second time, warned for their actions. These formulaic responses contain no thought and are generally a waste of an otherwise good opportunity to help acclimate a new member to the forums. Read the full ruleset (linked below) for more on this.

-No "Stay Away From 'X' Forum" Warnings: This was a trend that took place a while back, wherein members were telling new members to stay away from a certain forum. This particular forum was a forum that was explicitly for members that were experienced with GameWinners' customs, and not at all a place for new members to acclimate themselves. By warning them not to go there, more new members found their way to that forum and subsequently found themselves in too deep. We do not want to see this happening ever again, and so these warnings will be removed on-sight, with a stern word of caution to the person posting them.

-New Members Limit: If you've been registered for over 3 months, or over 150 posts and have not made a Welcome thread, we ask that you please refrain from doing so. By this particularly point in time, you are no longer a new member and should be well acquainted with the GameWinners' forums and members. This is, of course, with the exception of those who are returning to GameWinners' Forums.

Update: Please review the "Special Addendum 2" of the Welcome Room Forum Ruleset.

This states that Trolling has been removed from the forum rulesets and is now at the complete discretion of the forum moderators as to whether or not they wish to include it in their respective rules. This does not mean that you have to put up with harassment, however. If you feel that a member is consistently harassing you, please pass this along to a forum moderator or a member of the Upper Staff and it will be reviewed.
