Posting Etiquette of Hack Forums
1. Post in the correct category.
2. Use good grammar. Basically, start sentences with a capital and end it with punctuation.
3. Don't double post. That's when you post one after another instead of editing your existing first post.
4. Don't cross post. That's when you repeat a post in multiple threads or categories. Also, it applies if you post a thread with the same or similar content multiple times across forums or in a single forum.
5. Don't post leaked content. Leaking is when information is taken from one place and posted somewhere else without giving any credit.
6. Create relevant subjects for threads. Shit like "OMG" for a subject is immature and asinine.
7. When posting content from another site, credit the site; use quotes and link to the original content (unless it is a competing forum, in which case you shouldn’t be posting the content).
8. Be kind to others. How hard is it not to be an asshole?
9. Act like you're older than 16 even if you aren't.
