Welcome to the Punchwood guide! You're probably here because it is in the rules section, and you are a new member of Punchwood! First off, welcome to Punchwood! This post will help you throughout Punchwood and it keeps you out of trouble. So relax, and let me tell you all there is to Punchwood! Enjoy!
II. The Forums:
Punchwood is a HUGE forum, with sections of gaming, the MCDS server, Asking Paul Questions, etc. So it would be natural to go over them no? Then let's get started!
This section will cover the rules, not tell you them, so please read the forum rules before reading this section. Lets jump right in. First off, the forums is a place for everyone to share their information to the world!
Whether it means technical support or a poll about your favorite block in Minecraft, almost everything is shared. So it is important to follow rules so the forums don't get out of hand. That means please refrain from
sharing your skype name, phone number, or basically any personal information unless you are comfortable with sharing it. Also, do not spam, excessively caps, or double post. Foul language is prohibited too. If
you DO break the rules, the forum moderators will either edit your post, remove your post, lock the thread completely, or maybe ban if things get too serious. So keep in mind to follow the rules!
2) Creating a post/making a thread:
Making threads or posts are highly encouraged here at Punchwood. But there are some things to keep in mind. Don't make duplicate posts or duplicate topics. Make sure your threads and posts are appropriate and
actually help out the forums. Don't just put "I agree" or "What he said". Instead, add more things like constructive criticism. This makes your posts actually worth something to the person reading it. This is also
considered spam, and you don't want to be caught spamming. Also make sure the topic is in the correct section.
3) Paul's AMAA forums:
This one is a problem. I made this a section because I want everyone to see it. DO NOT post in Paul's AMAA forums unless necessary. This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves in Punchwood. I cannot stress
enough that this forum is for PAUL ONLY. That means you do not have a say in it. People create the question so Paul can answer it, not you. You might think I'm being mean, but it is the rule. By posting there about
you, (Ex. "Whats your favorite ice cream flavor?" and you say "Vanilla) rules are being broken. So don't do it.
This also gets under my skin. Punchwood is not a place for arguing. Its a friendly community, if you have something to argue about, do it in a private chat or private PM. You can get the topic locked for doing this.
Also, if someone proves you wrong, and you can't prove yourself right, give up. Continuously arguing without providing any sort of evidence or a reasonable say, is not good. And you can't create your own rules on
the forum. (Asking for something that will make the topic better is reasonable) What I mean by this is like "A brony can't post here" (No offense to bronies.). You may not discriminate or do something that will offend
other people. Threatening won't do anything either ("You better not talk to me, or I'll get you banned!"). To wrap it up, don't argue in public, don't offend people, or do whatever you want because you create the
THERE WILL BE MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON!
