This really needs a good updating but it is a great guide ^-^

Yeah, I'll be on it in the next few days. I haven't been able to touch the internet (well, at least not for a great period of time) in a while and with a substantial update on the way, I haven't found the time necessary to complete it. Rest assured, once I get the time to properly make and polish the update it will be up. This weekend at the very latest.

Kuliani:
Ok, added Labyrinth and Ultrajoe to the list of mods in the Posting Guidelines thread. Ultrajoe actually wanted to keep his forum title instead of taking the Red Guard title, if anyone was wondering.

What about Baby Tea? Or did that happen recently?

Yes, it was a recent thing.

Kuliani said that Red Guard #3 would not be disclosed until he agreed. I think it can be safely assumed that Baby Tea was him.

Updates soon.

Note that I added definitions for thread necroing and thread duping. Announced here: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/groups/view/Inside-The-Escapist

Added Baby Tea to the roster of Red Guards.

Thank you for these clarifications. Maybe now we can spend more time in enjoying this forum, rather than arguing about how it should work.

And congratulations to our new Guards.

Glad to see this, as this is one of the most discussed topics on The Escapist.

Oh, and I'm also glad to see you've updated the mod list now! :)

ok so now i know what to fear

haveyaheard:
"Get your music onto up to 300 online music distributors including iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, Sprint, Verizon, eMusic, and more, simply, quickly, and very cost effectively.

Haveyaheard will partner with you to get your music in more stores than you thought possible, opening the doors for more potential fans to find your music!

How does it work? Very simply! We just need 2 copies of your audio CD, $15 per album set up fee, your UPC code, and an agreement signed between us and we'll be ready to distribute for you.

Don't have a UPC code? No problem, we can purchase one for you for $20.

You keep the rights to your music - you did make it!

We'll record your music sales and report to you quarterly. Our commission is just 10% of the royalties that we receive and you are credited with the rest. All you need to do is keep writing and playing your music, and telling your fans that your tunes can be downloaded from all of the major online music sites.

For more information and to sign up simply contact joanne.davies@51entertainment.net"

isn't one of the things were supposed to report, wierd its on the thread about reporting just this thing. hmmm i have half a mind to let it slide, half....

You know that you quoted yourself right? Anyway you have nothing to fear unless you plan to breach the rules.

Holy cow, that bot joined tomorrow.
That's crazy.

Also, the bot lies. With online music distributors, it would actually be better to give away your music.

Very nice, even though there's a few slight typos...

This site somewhat reminds of the ol' chatbox in Kingdom of Loathing... It always amazed me how fast people got banned, but I guess that's what you get for having mods on at almost all hours of the day o:

Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner!

That is one stupid bot, though. Kinda reflects upon its creator, I think :)

I reported it. You should too, probably.

so very true, but i was killing two birds with one stone, i was addin in what i wanted the easiest way (was to lazy to click edit) and i also got to have a DRAMAZICT PAUZE! yay...

i just think its funny that that guys first post is spam and its on the article saying do not spam. i find that humorous.

berethond:

The bot is probably in in a different timezone, so it was registered as joining on the 2nd. Mystery solved.

And I didn't even need a Scooby Snack...

There's no probably needed in that sentence. If it's against the rules, you should definately report it. Leave no survivors.

WHY IS HE NOT BANNED ANYMORE :'(

That's serious ban material up there. Reported a dozen times.

Would you kindly please stop posting your desktop background on our forums.

They can ban your IP you know.

I don't think he's going to go somehow. But I am getting seriously pissed off at him posting that damn gay porn on every thread I go onto.

Who calls for IP ban?

EDIT: Ahhh Cpt..... Ninja'd!

I like KITTIES!

and 100% cotton socks

This man speaks the truth, we should all like Kitties, and 100% cotton socks really are comfortable.

Botched Necromancy:
OMG REPORTED

Not to take away your ePower fantasies, but I can just make a new fucking account...

Well can you stop it?, its not an ePower fantasy, I'm just asking you to stop it. Your making a mess of the forums, for what exactly?. All your posts will get deleted, all your doing is making the Mods hit delete a bit more than they normally do.

Your not a nuisance, your just making a mess.

Ignore the destroyed troll - in fact, we may as well edit all our comments to remove even his brief existance from the forum as if he never was.

Cpt_Oblivious:

I thought that was what being banned did as standard.

Lord Krunk:
Bans are the moderator's last resort, a way to eliminate a user's foul activity on the forum for good, by going so far as to ban the very IP where the user came from (and thus preventing them from creating a new account). Better known as the Perma-Ban.

Oh, and congrats on getting over 5000 posts.

Zombie_Fish:

Thanks.

This was a helpful guide I must say. For a somewhat new poster on the Escapist, It sure helped me figure out the guidelines on the forums. When I first joined I feared that something I might say could get a probation by accident, (I say probation because there is no reason for me to be troll or feed them getting me suspended or banned), but thanks to this I can honestly say, I have no worries.

Thank you Escapist!

Aww, man. That mean sI can't get those badges because I was on probation when I started? I thought it meant you have to have a clean streak of 1000 and Mod Wrath resets the badges' counters.
I'm confused, though. It said that newcomers get waarnings, and it was like my 10th post, called pointless, which I didn't think it was.

EDIT: No, wait I remember. It was well deserved, I had posted offensive material, since I discovered this site not more than 10 minutes after I finished lurking on 4chan. I forgot that other places had rules, and standards, and the sort.

I must say, this was a very helpful thread. I have had some question since I joined and have been too shy to ask a moderator. Thank you for clearing up these issues.

This was a very helpful thread. I've been here a while, and yet it still allowed me to follow things more closely!

I have to say, very very well done! Cudos to you!! XD

Did you actually get banned for this or is that ending something you put in yourself and i'm just gullible.

Dazza5897922:

It's just a joke you can do with BB Code, he wasn't actually banned for it. When someone's banned the post gets spoilered and it will say "User was banned for this post, click to view."

User was banned for this post... ironicly. (permanent)

((Don't mind me, just testing to see if something works, sry if this causes any trouble))

Thanks, as a new user I found this post quite helpful...
