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?

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.

Damn, you found me out ! :D

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 read them as soon as they were posted. Had to check for spelling errors hehe....didn't work. But I know EVERYONE else read it first thing. *cough* yeah right!

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

I read the guidelines, the FAQs, the tutorials, and lurked for a few days.

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

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 :rolleyes:
i also searched the forums many times before posting.. i'm just the perfect lil poster :D :ROFLMAO smilie:

Don't you just hate it when people ask for homeworks, and want you to give them the whole program.:confused:

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.

Same exact thing here....plus, I was too lazy to read them when they were created.

Although, to be fair, it _did_ take me a few months after I joined the old board to actually read the FAQ :)

As adrianxw and ken just said they were not here when I joined nor were they on the old board. I read the first one mostly because it was there and there were maybe 100 posts on the boards. The other ones I read for no real reason. I do remember there being a page that had the rules of the boards back on the old page...Either way even if the rules weren't here and someone asks "can you do this homework assignment from you" what makes you think anyone would respond any different than they do now?


On a totally unrelated topic:
compjinx, I like your avatar :)

Board guidelines, what are those? FAQ - Oh that, I read them, yeah, I remember.

Oh yeah, I forgot how many posts does it take to get that cool name above your avatar?

j/k :D

TBH No.
But as adrian said. Its all just common sense and politeness.
