What counts as "spam"?"Spam" is defined in different ways on different websites. Here on Community Flashlight, the term is applied to any post that does not contribute to normal, reasonable, on-topic discussion on these forums. That includes, but is not limited to:- All-caps thread titles and/or all-caps posts (unless specifically applicable to the subject of the thread)- Alternating caps and lower-case thread titles or posts (eXaMpLe)- Threads that only require a one-liner reply such as a number or rank- Rick Rolls--"inb4[anything]"- "youfail," "You Fail," "Epic Fail," "Phail," "youfail.org," or anything even remotely similar - Posting "Wall of text," "China called...," "tl;dr," or anything remotely similar- ASCII art, such as facepalm, middle finger, the care cup, or anything similar- Posts in any language other than readable and intelligible English- Typing upside down using an online translator- Do not "break" the page width or forum formatting by repeating or special characters- Biased, unfair, irrelevant, non-contributory, or one-sided polls* Do not create "blog"-style posts unless they are part of a larger on-topic discussion. These topics do not encourage discussion and are therefore spam.
What counts as a "blog"?A "blog" post is the original post in a new thread that merely relates a personal experience that another user can neither agree nor disagree with. In other words, it is a post that can result in nothing but other users "commenting" on that personal experience or relating similar personal experiences, rather than beginning a discussion.*Do not flame each other! Use your manners and common sense. If you disagree with someone, do so gracefully.
What counts as "flaming"?The act of "flaming" is the act of attacking or insulting a person who posts, rather than the ideas expressed within the post itself. Your post should remain on-topic and focused on the subject matter of the thread rather than any individual user"Necroposting" (the act of making a non-responsive, repetitive, or off-topic reply in a thread that has not been active for weeks or months) is a form of bumping and is prohibited.*Do not troll. Do not feed the trolls!
What is "trolling"?Trolling is any post designed to evoke an emotional or flaming response instead of an informed, well-reasoned reply. These posts are characterized by broad generalizations and personal accusations about specific people or groups of people rather than a well-reasoned assertion backed up with support.Parody or satire threads are a form of trolling."Do not feed the trolls" means do not respond to trolling, and is also strictly enforced.Rules are subject to change at any time, so be sure to visit this page from time to time to check the rules.
