New members should be advised that, due to anti-spamming measures, it may take several posts and/or days before your posts begin showing up.
As for forum moderation guidelines:
What should it say?
What do you guys want?
What can I clear up?
Banning of "trolls" on this forum was at one time policy but was ultimately unsuccessful as they just came back under new user names using dozens of different IP addresses. For the last year or two we decided to let the forum police itself through features such as a "members only" section (Silver Seekers Forums) and also tools such as ignoring users, etc. Those means have sadly proven to be unsuccessful as well, so its back to the old way, and with your help we can be vigilant about it.
So we are back to banning trolls again, along with spammers and otherwise disruptive users. What other things would members on this forum prefer to have in the guidelines? What else can I clear up?
