Forum etiquette consists of basic courtesies and expectations which help create an enjoyable atmosphere and experience for our community. These are meant to complement our Code of Conduct, not replace it so please read this article thoroughly.
In order to provide a consistent experience for our players, if a thread or post does not meet these expectations they will be moderated appropriately.

Posting Threads and Replies
Thread titles should be relevant to the topic. They don't always have to be fully descriptive but if you choose to use a "My reaction/that feeling when" or one word style thread titles, please do your best to communicate the topic:
- [Coli] That feeling when...
- [Gathering] Whyyyy
- [Nests] It finally happened!
Threads are not required to be tagged in this manner, but it will help your fellow players identify a topic they may be interested in. In the event a discussion forum becomes overrun with reaction style or one word thread titles, you may find your thread title is moderated to reflect the main topic.
Thread titles should not be in all-capital letters or random mix of capital and non-capital letters.

When you type in 'all caps', you are more or less shouting at the person reading your post. There's nothing wrong with that in the body of the post or reply, but a forum of 'all caps' thread titles is a forum where everyone shouts at or over each other. That's not fun or enjoyable.
Threads should be on topic for the forum they are in. If the thread is in a discussion forum, it should be open to discussion. Private messages are best suited for private discussions. If the thread is in a sales forum, it must be open and looking to sell, buy, or trade.
Refrain from reviving old threads unless the content is relevant and constructive.
Be considerate of your fellow players when posting. Threads and posts should not use font formatting that may make the text difficult for others to read, such as using fonts that are excessively small, large, or light in color.
