    General Posting Guidelines

  1. If you are new to news posting, first take sometime to read the ongoing discussions and watch how people go about doing it. After sometime, you'll start understanding why certain things are done and what things shouldn't be done.
  2. Please remember that people all over the world are reading your words. Do not attack people if you cannot persuade them with your presentation of the facts. Screaming, cursing, and abusing others only serves to make people think less of you and less willing to help you when you need it. So, keep your politeness level high.. :)
  3. Never say in ten words what you can say in fewer. Say it succinctly and it will have a greater impact. Remember that the longer you make your article, the fewer people will bother to read it. Be brief.
  4. Don't repeat what has already been said. Before posting, read the rest of the postings to see if someone has already said what you want to say. If someone has, don't repeat it.
  5. Cite Appropriate References: If you are using facts to support a cause, state where they came from. Don't take someone else's ideas and use them as your own. You don't want someone pretending that your ideas are theirs; show them the same respect.
  6. Do not open a new thread for specific movies when the movie is already discussed in other threads (like IR's works in IR's new albums thread).
  7. Please post lyrics requests and other song stat queries in the permanent threads available for such queries.
