    NOOB Bashing Rules - Please read!

    The admins on this site believe that the "NOOB bashing" has come to a frenzied level and gotten out of hand. We'd like to lay some ground rules. You people are adults and should know how to conducts yourselves, but sadly that is not happening.

    I think we were all told in Kindergarten (or church if you went) "Treat others as you would treat yourself." Realizing it's a forum, not the real world, I suppose people do not want to abide by "The Golden Rule." The anonymity of the internet makes it easier to be cruel and abusive.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Absolutely no bashing of NOOBS who are conducting themselves in a peaceful manner and adding to the discussion.
    2. No bashing NOOBS for technical errors. Suggestion: if you are a senior member why not offer assistance? You clearly have the free time.
    3. Report NOOBS who are being abusive and the moderators will take action. Sure you can tell these people to STFU if they are clearly trolling, but report the posts as well.
    4. Try to celebrate the uniqueness of MDS by explaining the intricacies of our board to new members who are confused. If you can't do that then just STFU Non-NOOB Members!



    Offenders will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned.

    Thanks for the guidelines MC.

    I think lately ( as you say ) it's gotten a bit much and it's quite boring to see it said over and over again.

    The new people will ( hopefully ) bring more diversity and ideas to the site and help it to grow more,so trying to help some of them stick around is a good idea I reckon.

    Oooooh a new moderator!

    Exciting! 
    Anyone who says onions make you cry has clearly never been hit in the face with a turnip.

    Offenders will be warned privately. Repeat offenders will be banned. And trust me: you all tattle on each other so it won't be hard to keep up.

    We are also electing a new moderator very soon who will help with this problem. Stay tuned!

    Exactly. You may still go full force on trolls, after reporting them.
