    Some of these should be obvious, and a couple seem like jokes, but mostly, I think this could be helpful.

    I meant things like:

    "Don't be racist"
    "Be nice"
    "Read the rules and get used to them"

    These are literally givens on 99 percent of forums.

    Also, nitpicking on some "steps":

    I'm not in the Slack chat.
    I don't pity machines.
    I don't play Pokemon GO.
    I never use legitimate social media sites.
    Licks are a staple of the forum's past. :P
    Sarcasm is actually really hard to convey through text.

    Not all of the steps are supposed to be taken seriously. Also you should be in the slack chat.

    15)change them whenever you want... BUT changing them multiple times a day can be spam
    16)nah... if you want to say something stupid, do it. just don't over do it...
    17)it's only recommendable to have a name that people can actually read.
    18)very true
    19)rate whenever you want... but rate the post not the person.
    20)rephrase it to "Check often if you don't want to miss stuff"
    21)Don't necrobump things without a good reason (no excuses)
    22)i don't get this one

    31) i also don't like people in my skin... neither metaphorically nor literally
    32)look... another one that should be given
    33)use common sense and listen when people tell you what you are doing is treeesh
    34)Don't double, triple, or quadruple post
    35)Don't make duplicates of closed threads - if you plan to, ask the mods if that is okay. threads got closed for a reason.
    36)actually don't... but prefer it over making a thread for every small thing.
    37)perfect source of non spam and free internet points
    38)i take it as an addition to previous point: if you are an artist of any kind, have a thread about it.
    39)as much as i appreciate that idea... i think that never happened ._.
    40)i don't get this one...
    41)another given... more or less.
    42)isn't that actualy bad advice for your IRL?
    43)common sense FTW
    44)or just ask what you missed if you stayed away for a while
    45)should actually your main reason to be here IMO

    74)Mods are there to clean up messes not argue for you
    75)Know that Mods have lives so they cant pick up after you every single time

    Why are there no new discussions/polls? Why? Its as if Dash net has gone silent, or has ran out of ideas and inspiration, and has dropped dead.
