- Try to keep posts informative, the more information you provide, the better we can help. An informative post will also help other people looking for similar information. Try to give as much detail as you can. While we aren't too bothered with replies to posts, try not to just post one word responses to boost your post count. It's annoying...and we throw bananas for that!
- Try to keep on topic. If you find that something sparks your memory and you need to get it out, post a new topic so that conversation can flow freely on the original topic. Avoid hi-jacking a thread.
- DO NOT BUMP posts or bump your post counts up to access restricted forums. Classifieds users may bump their threads ONCE PER WEEK.

Too many infractions and you can be banned for several days or indefinitely.
