    Did you read the guidlines when you first used the forum? Why?

    I didn't, I read them after a while, when I first visited the forum, I wanted to see some posts, and also because the guidlines in all forum are the same?
    What about you?
    none...

    >>because the guidlines in all forum are the same?
    Yes they are, because we can't guarantee that someone will visit a particular forum.

    >>What about you?
    When I first came here I lurked for a while, and yes I read the guidelines and FAQ's before posting. I didn't want to make an ass of myself with my first post.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Damn, you found me out !

    Seriously though, the rules are mainly just list of things that are common sense anyway, but some people don't have common sense of their own, so they need it spelt out to them.

    I did not read the guidlines when I first visited the forum, because I was annoyed by my problem.

    When did I first read the guidlines..???.

    I think when I crossed post a thread then I was asked to read to guidlines by the Mod.. then I read the guidlines ... very carefully.. but browsing this forum frequently worked more to understand the fourum then what I could understand reading guidlines
    One day you will ask what more important to you..
    I will say my life..
    and You will leave me with even knowing
    that

    Hell no. I just wanted my question answered so I can leave. I didn't even bother searching either. Take that!
    Try not.

    What was your question, Will you do my homework for me?

    ohh suuure *nods* i looked at 'em first thing. read 'em over and over.. printed them out, i cover my walls with them!

    *waits til mods are out of sight*

    i did the tutorials and looked at the FAQ, but i don't think i look at the guidelines. i lurked for a few months before actually posting. by that time i'd seen enough people get warnings from mods to know what not to do
    i also searched the forums many times before posting.. i'm just the perfect lil poster :ROFLMAO smilie:

    void main(void)

    So you acctually started to show some work
    Don't you just hate it when people ask for homeworks, and want you to give them the whole program.

    I think I might have read them... Can't remember.
    Gee, maybe I should read them.

    There weren't any when I joined. Nor on the old board I think - but I knew them anyway. They are pretty much common sense and simple politeness.
