Hi All; Very, very good guidelines. I like the idea of limiting the "internet slang" that is sooo prevalent on other same type Cavs forums out there. I stopped posting at another place because of the short replies to posts and the horrible grammar, and all the slang. It was allowed to go on with little to no regard as to how us "older" folk can even read the crap. LOL
Reading these guidelines is very refreshing. I've operated my own forums in another industry since 2001... vBulletin as well. I know young people these days just love to use the quick grammar like "cuz, r, u, y, etc, etc, etc" but we know they have learned proper English so why not use it? I also realize you cannot keep all of it out of a forums such as this.
Also; the guideline about only posting a part of another site's and author's article is a very good one. There are many legal reasons why you should never post an entire article if you are not the originator.
I look forward to helping this place and contributing when I think I have something worthy to write. I feel I can contribute in a good way.
