    Your friendly little forum bot. Staff Member

    The general forum is the place to talk about all sorts of general topics. Most of the general chat conversations happen in this forum, along with regional threads, food threads, and other generalized chit-chat. This thread outlines a few of the forum policies that help maintain a smooth and consistent environment.

    Please also be aware of the community rules and code of conduct policy.

    If you need to contact a moderator, you'll find an updated list here.

    Retired Chat Threads

    We retire threads when they hit 35k posts. This helps keep threads at a reasonable size for optimization reasons. Once a thread hits 35k posts it will be locked and no new posts will be allowed. A new thread can be created and a link to the new thread will be the last post made in the archived thread. We recommend you post a link to the previous threads in the first post of the new thread so people can go back and browse past conversations if they would like.

    NSFW Threads

    Threads that contain images, or text, that you believe would not be safe to be viewed in a work environment should be given the NSFW prefix.

    Prefixes

    When creating a thread please use the correct prefix if it's needed. This allows for easy sorting and searching for specific items within the forum:

    Common Threads

    Advanced Search

    Don't forget you can do a deep search of the general forum on our advanced search page.

    hello, how can i make a new post here.
     
    • Forum members must be registered at least three days and have at least 20 posts before they can create a thread. This is to help avoid spam or people creating accounts just to make threads / self-promote.
