FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    I was living in Austin, TX and Los Angeles before that....and Austin before that and Los Angeles before that.

    Except for a couple of short stays in Michigan, I've lived away from here since the fall of 1993.

    I moved back here in big part because of the booming film business. Now, that may be changing. We'll see but I'm here for now.

          I like the BOLD titles where you can see with one glance where the new posts are. And, having several of the HTML thingies available at a click of a button, rather than actually writing it, is good too.

            I like the previewing post feature, it lets me make sure I've got things coded the way I want them!

                Couple of things that are puzzling. Maybe someone can square me away here .....

                I usually leave a window open on my laptop at work for this board and when I get a moment, I'll check in. There appears to be a time limit to how long you can stay logged in without any activity. It also seems to be pretty short. Any info on this feature???

                As well, if I check in through another computer (different IP Address), the board does not recognize that I had already viewed posts and I have to view them all again to correct it from the new IP Address. Info on this???

                  I like the format as well, much easier to post html links and pictures.

                    When you sign in, there's a check box that says "stay signed in on this computer." Check that and you should be good to go. I stay signed in for days at a time...

                    With your second problem, you should make sure that you are signed in. If you are signed in, it should recognize which posts youve seen before...

                      Thanks ..... I think I figured out that second one about 10 minutes ago. Yep, as long as you sign in it recognizes what you've already read regardless of computer.

                                Well you have to be a little discreet with this going on next door. For some reason setting up the lawn chair with popcorn and soft drinks for an advantageous viewing position seems to be frowned on. So was holding up placards numbered 1-10
