Nope. No one wants the DCC to be spammy - or spammier than it already is a lot of the time.

Hm, you sure? I remember Razor making an edit to the last DCC thread, and I thought it was taking down the four word rule. Maybe I remember wrong, though.

Anyhow, this was fun and all, but that Calc homework wont do itself. I'm done for the day, peace out PC~

It was not in it 2 DCCs ago and in the last DCC, so in this DCC it also applies.

When I first joined...I remembered that wrong and thought it was a 4 sentence rule. That made it hard to post. D; I would sit and count words and sentences in my posts to make sure it fit that requirement. Such an idiot haha.

I still count characters every once in a while. Earlier I had a post that was 24 characters. So frustrating.

I would just throw in filler stuff (but not to the point of spamming) to get my posts through. But even at that, I had a difficult time posting until I understood the rule.

Darn it I keep forgetting to work on a book I'm writing. I still have a lot of planning to do.

A moderator asking not to be banned? X)
But it's a good idea haha. I don't much need to pay attention to that rule, because I avoid writing specifically short posts. Which reminds me that I need to get around to memorizing the rules here. I have a general idea (enough not to break them) but I don't know all of them.

Eh, I wouldn't say you have to memorize the rules. By the time I was a mod, I only really knew of the rules in my section. Pay attention to where you post often and use some common sense. If you trip up, you learn; if people judge you for a mistake, they're doing it wrong.

True. I'd rather not risk being kicked off here, though.

@Toujours-
Haha, why did they threaten you?

Wow, for once, I like the way this short story thing is turning out. Though I need to be careful who sees it, considering it's a bit...disturbing. (:

Yeahh I find way more often people worried about people judging them for a mistake (or judging themselves for a mistake) than people actually judging other people for mistakes. Never met a person, mod or otherwise, that cares about a closed thread or a redirected post, haha.

Edit: For posting MLP...;_;

You must have a serious cascade of infractions if you're skiing on such thin ice.

Such a fine point. :)

During the smod days, my favorite PMs were those that would send me messages apologizing. Made my day, though I hadn't judged them anyway.

When I warn/infract someone and they reply really upset about it I just feel super bad and want to reverse it. :( It's just a forum you guys! It's not the end of the world! Please don't cry!

I've actually never been infracted here. But the last forum I used I was banned from, so I don't want PC to be a repeat of that. I totally deserved being banned, though. But they never even warned me for it (aside from doing stuff like deleting my threads). I was suspended like five times, but never for any real reason- it was always a mistake on their end.

@Toujours
Okay, that's actually amusing. I wouldn't expect many people on PC to watch it, honestly. x; I myself don't really see the appeal in it, but to each his own~

That's generally why I usually don't infract people and why I'm pretty liberal in forum matters. It's just a forum and you should enjoy coming here and not feel like you're skating on thin ice, so I don't think it be taken so seriously.

I think I have a decent grasp on the rules of most sections since I often have to direct new users where to go for certain things... that and I was the type who read the rules like 10 times before posting somewhere since I really didn't want to make a mistake. I think the only warning/infraction I've ever gotten was when I went 15 pixels past the signature limit on another forum. >:

    Never been infracted before. Did get a warning by a certain Wailord lover that recently came back from the dead but I don't know if that even counts. I try and abide by the rules here.

    Ugh, you're disgusting. You deserved a hell of a lot more than a simple infraction.

    I don't think I can look at you the same way again.

      I vaguely remember how ashamed of myself I was when I finally got my first infraction. Then I got a few more and realized I didn't really care enough, especially seeing how I've never done anything too wrong.

      When I report things I check the rules just to make sure the report is for a good reason. I'd be pretty embarrassed if I filed a false report considering I barely do it anyways.

      Mine was overturned for a warning, and later I got another warning for trading hacked Pogeymons like the dark lord of Mordor that I am.

      EDIT: OH **** Luck has joined us too. <3

      Once someone told me I was 10px over the sig limit here, after spending like hours perfecting my sig. I was...pretty annoyed.

      Hacked pokemon how scary. D;

      I once forgot about that rule and offered my shiny Nidoking in a trade. A moderator just edited my post but never warned me?
