NEW GRAD'S GUIDE TO THE FORUM

Welcome!

So you've recently been accepted to the graduates chat, an honorable feat! But before reaping the benefits of this wonderful and intelligent chat, there are some basic rules you should follow, in order to make the experience better for you and others. First off, read the Graduates chat rules and the sister topic, the N00bs guide. . Both focus on the mechanics of posting, but are handy to know, if you don't already.


Rules for a Better Graduates Experience

1. Don't make topics just for the sake of discussion and idle chat : Before making a post, ask yourself "Has anyone already made a topic about this?" or "Will it truly contribute to the forum?"

2. Make topics with a scope for discussion : Don't just make a topic to state your current thoughts or feelings. Make topics that give people something to reply to and talk about.

3. Give your opinion when posting a new topic. : Don't just ask a simple question without saying what you think. As a rule of thumb, Don't ask for opinions without giving yours.

4. Stay on topic : Although this is stated in many places, the moderators of this forum are mostly concerned with this issue. Don't go off on random tangents or make random and pointless posts. Rather than doing so, ask another question that relates to the topic that furthers discussion. Aside posts are fine too, but not to access.

5. Differentiate the Graduates Chat from General-Chit-Chat. : General chit-chat is that; chit-chat without a general theme. Such topics don't belong in the Graduates chat and will be moved accordingly. The Graduates chat is made for topics for intelligent conversation.

6. Set a good example to the rest of the forum : Show other forumers how to behave properly, to improve the overall quality of the forum.

7. Before Asking a Question about the Gorillaz, Check G-U : Most questions about the Gorillaz should have been answered here, or by Searching

Just remember, this forum is for discussion , not chat (this includes "Party" or "Celebration" type topics, which belong in General chit-chat).

Enjoy!

I asked bassman to make this topic because his 'N00B'S GUIDE' has proved to be very helpful to new members to the forum in general.

These aren't strictly rules (see the rules topic for that, above) but should be thought of as a guide to getting the most out of the new Graduates forum.

Yes, this pertains to everyone, but I'd think it would be most helpful to those people who have recently become graduates, but are a bit unsure how to act. This should clarify some confusion too.

Strange.
If that's racism you should never come to the Netherlands. I mean, they call themselves #that word#.

If this forum would be controlled by someone Dutch she wouldn't have a strike :/

But when is it okay for a white person to call a black person that?

Never.

In the NL it's no problem at all...

And anyway, DD impersonated Murdoc. He would say that. So you f*ck her for something the bandleader says...

-I have the feeling I shouldn't have said all this, but to Dutch life, it's... so very normal actually-

Well, Murdoc would never use the word 'N*****'. Why? Because nobody from the UK (or US) who is white, would use that word. Because it's considered racist to do so, in the UK and the US. So really, you're completely wrong when you say Murdoc would use that word. He might be a bast@rd, but he's not racist. And he'd have to be racist, given that he's a white guy from the UK, to use that word.

Quoted for truth.

Also, I'd like to add to that that while Murdoc is "chronically caucasian," Russel is right there to kick his @$$ so I think he's smart enough to watch his mouth. Also, if he were racist, why would he even recruit Russel to begin with?

Back to the REAL topic at hand, I think this Guide is very useful. It's a masterpiece, 5 stars! The n00bs guide is still useful too, these are both great moments in the history of this message board.

Thanks. That's nice.
I still don't see the problem.
