PRB'S TIPS FOR NEWBIES!

Here are some tips if you're new on these boards. Follow them, and you're sure to fit right in.

PART ONE: POSTING TIPS

1. Please don't type "lyk dis kk!!!!" because it really does get annoying. If you can't spell, you're obviously too young to use a computer.

2. Five exclamation points are not neccasary on the end of every sentance. Please remember that.

3. DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME! <- It sounds like your yelling and distracts us from your post.

4. Keep the text abbreviations (ex. lol, omg) on the down low. It's annoying when your post looks like this: "FYI OMG your horse is lol lol lol lol funnayyyyyyyyyy looking! OMG WTH is on his head? ROFL ROFL LMAO!!!"

5. Don't use the non-text smileys. ( ex. ) Nobody likes them. XD

6. Don't swear so much, as there are younger members on here who may be offended.

7. Don't fight. Just don't.

PART TWO: THE BOARDS AND STUFF

1. Pease post all topics on the appropriate boards. A topic called "How do I fit a Saddle?" does not belong in "Critique Me, Please."

2. Don't bring up old topics, please. They're old news.


PART THREE: CRITIQUE ME, PLEASE!

1. You post it, you ask for it. Don't flip out on members who give you a completly polite critique.

2. " I hate it, you are a terrible rider, and your horse is a fat cow" isn't a critique. Instead, kindly let the member know what they could improve on and how they could do it.

3. Only post banner ctiques once in a while. They clog up the horsey part.

PART FOUR: BANNERS, SIGGIES, AND AVVIES

1. Please keep your signature short. Long ones often slow down computers and keep members from enjoying YR.

2. Don't post siggy shops a ton. They clog the boards. Instead, post in the latest siggy mall. Don't see one? Make one yourself.

3. Don't be offended if you use mybannermaker.com and picnik and blingee and glittershack and nobody wants your banners. They aren't very good, honestly. If you are that interested in making banners, you should invest in a program such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, etc.

4. You should use only ONE banner per signature. I'm sure the banner makers wouldn't mind very much if you didn't use their's right away.

PART FIVE: GENERAL

1. Don't lie. We are magical and can tell your lying, and will get mad at you.

2. Don't post pictures, banners, etc that aren't yours and claim them as your own.

3. Be nice. Treat othersd the way you'd like to be treated.

And that concludes the tips!







Goodbye, Misty. Be good at your new home.



You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart.

Thank you PRB.  Hopefully this will help!

--------------------------------------------
Siggys are pretty simple at the moment.  Once I get my new Photoshop they will be better ^_^
I'm back!  Or, at least for now.  I'm not sure for how long.
I'm srry if I keep leaving or leave for a long time.  I have other things going on in my life.
With love =]
