I read posted here for a while a few years back, and for the most part, I enjoyed the experience. I gave up after a while, mostly because the forum seemed a little stuffy (no offense intended). It seemed like there were a few too many rules I didn't know.

Since then, the board I have invested the majority of my Mavs-talk time into has degenerated into a cesspool fit only for middle school drop outs and the criminally insane. So, I need to come back around, if you'll have me.

My question is, what, exactly, are the rules of this place? Is humor allowed? Under what circumstances is it ok to start a new thread? How often do people use the rep system, and how seriously is it taken? Do I need to live in constant fear of pissing people off, or can I be myself?

Thanks!
The unwritten rules:

- if you make a GDT and we win, then you keep making them until we lose... Don't hijack anyone's win streak.

- language rules are looser in the GDTs because things tend to get heated, but please try to avoid f-bombs when you can.

- the rep system is pretty much binary... If you make good posts, you'll eventually get bumped up to maximum green boxes... If make troll/clown posts, you'll probably get stuck in the red and people will generally dismiss or ignore anything you have to say.


That's about it.

I remember your posts - I don't think you have anything to worry about around here... Welcome back!
