O-3 US Army Reserves AMEDD APMC
"To conserve the fighting strength!"

Bobcast: the only ninja to operate an ER out of his mom's basement

I'm going to leave this here as a helpful guide for our newer members. It is a quick and simple acronym you can use for when you want to start a new thread.

That acronym is D.R.A.G.O.N.S.

Here is the breakdown,


D - Determine your topic

Know what you want to write about. Don't create a topic that you're ill informed about or have no sources for. The forums know when you don't know what you're talking about, and they will try and tear you apart for it.


R - Research the recent topics

Don't be the tool that makes the second or third thread about a topic. Repeat threads make people rage. Take a few seconds and look to see if your topic isn't already on the first 2 or 3 pages.


A - Appropriate forum

One the first two steps are finished, make sure you put it in the right place. Off topic threads in a forum get locked fast.


G - Grammar

Use complete sentences. Know the differences between your and you're. Make your post flow.

This will make a huge difference, trust me.


O - Open the spellchecker

Spelling is just important as grammar. Don't use leek speak, use caps appropriately, and fix your errors if you notice them. Also remember that the spellchecker won't catch it all, so proof read!


N - Never break the rules

Simple enough! Learn them and love them.


S - Start the thread!

If all of the above are satisfied, then start your thread!

There are many powers in the world, for good or for evil. Some are greater than I am. Against some I have not yet been measured. But my time is coming.

A good point. You have made.

Haters are going to hate.
Praisers are going to praise.

The Bungie Forums are what keeps my mind sharp and my fingers active, between writing my own movie scripts, drawing, and studying industrial design. At the moment I'm working on miniatures for a short movie that I'll hopefully be able to film once I've saved up for a camera... That's me, with the mug, trying to have a conversation with Konoko.

I don't usually like dragons, but this is one I can fully support!

I lol'd at the absurd miscommunication that occurs whenever dibbs post something. Perhaps his brain is so highly evolved that he can no longer clearly communicate with lesser life forms, even among his own species.

D - Determine your topic

Know what you want to write about. Don't create a topic that you're ill informed about or have no sources for. The forums know when you don't know what you're talking about, and they will try tear you apart for it.

Oh boy, looks like you violated the G rule. I assume that makes every other piece of information null and void?
