"As far as I know? Immediately." Gunter Schabowski


« on: December 06, 2013, 01:55:04 am »

I'd just like to state an observation.  90% or so of the recent threads made by newer members are simply "questions" regarding policy not discussions or informational being that most of the answers are already general knowledge on the Wiki pages.
This is not what, (to the best of my knowledge) ,The forum is for.

So they then get in response a bunch of people asking additional questions on the same thread having zero bearing on the original question and/or devolve into somthing... frankly... moronic and that all in turn must be transplanted into new threads by our moderators or removed, increasing their workload exponentially.

This is less a rebuke of anyone in particular, but a learned observation.

For UK questions you should refer all questions to Mercy via PM.
For EastWind policy questions and/or USGI questions.  PM aswayze.
For EastWind policy questions and/or Soviet questions PM Tescabe.
For East German Questions you should PM Doorman.

For those who understand chain of command pm's work that way. If they don't know they pass it up or they pass you up till you get your answer.   That's how I did it... That's how EastWind does it.... and it's worked pretty well so far.

This used to always be stickied on most airsoft forums I hang out on:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9q2jNjOPdk or http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/posting (better, original quality)

Super old, but always relevant.  New folk should heed this religiously.

Just to be clear, we aren't saying we aren't glad to have new people here...just the opposite, new people are great! However as a new person, please do try to be a contributing member in terms of doing your part before asking others to do it for you.

TL;DR - it's more work for moderators to move stuff into correct sections, if they are not busy enough working on more East Wind-related stuff.

Post everything in correct sections of this forum for easier time for everyone else to research and higher likelihood of getting the correct answer.

I believe this should be pinned on top of the 'general discussion' page.  Maybe add "read before posting" or "new members read this", something along those lines.  Ready makes some great points, but this will eventually get buried under newer topics

I'll sticky it but of course the people who most need to read this are not the types who read ANY FUCKING THING AT ALL before they start posting...
