A warning is a friendly warning, but an infraction is closer to a stern talking to. I wouldn't call it a strike, but if you keep getting infracted it's a very clear sign that you're continuing to do something wrong, and that you may want to change your behavior before we decide to send you on a long vacation for it.

No posting threads asking people to tell you what something is worth.

ie: I have a Motherboard, model XXX what is it worth if I sell it?

Ah, ok. I have two more questions.

I found the definition for "nef" but what is "lifer?" I've searched, but can't find an explanation anywhere. I ask because I keep seeing those two words come up when I read to try to understand the rules. I've never encountered them before, despite having frequented many smaller forums over the past 10 years.

A "moderator call out" is a public complaint about a specific moderator and is against the rules, correct?

A lifer is someone with 10000 through 49999 posts. It is a forum user rank, similar to you being marked as a junior member.

To the best of my knowledge, a moderator call out is a public complaint against a single named moderator or a group of named or unnamed moderators or all the moderators collectively, and is one of the most heavily enforced rules around here.

Hello.

My post was removed for 'Spamming advert' and I can't even reply.
Are you kidding?

Why other projects are allowed then?

And a lot others. I've checked before posting if there are other similar posts, made a good-looking article and got infracted. Thanks a lot.

Hi Anti;

As explained in your infraction, you were infracted for promoting your game. Our rule isn't against discussing Kickstarter campaigns; our rule is against developers coming here and promoting their own projects. Furthermore you posted the same thing in several other forums, which makes your post even spammier.

-Thanks
ViRGE

Default Anyway to delete a post?

Hello,

I know this is a weird question, but is there anyway to delete a post that you wrote yourself?

Thanks

Generally speaking, no, there is not.

If you wish to discuss the issue further, please start a thread in Moderator Discussions.

Hi,
Having just registered I have to say this is a refreshing change. Having some amount of moderator accountability is something I have always found to be a good thing
The way the rules are laid out for all to see is also I feel very good, transparency for all.

I look forward to participating

Looking at your post history, your 25th post only came within the last hour. The permissions system only updates a few times a day, so it could be several more hours until it next kicks off and gives you FS/FT access. Come back tomorrow and you should be set.

I believe there's still an official "neffing" thread in the Off Topic subforum.

Also, a fun word association thread: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2377309

First time I had read this thread completely, probably learned a few things in the process.

No, I'm am not looking to start trouble in any way, last thing that I would ever need.

Apparently, there have been rule changes since Anand has left, that might not even be obvious for returning older posters, or are happening without a lot of public notification.

I'm not talking about myself in any case, I'm perfectly aware I'm under a magnifying glass all of the time.

But it just seems if you look at some of the old guidelines in some threads they are a bit out of date currently.

Off to other things, Cya.

Hi, deaconbling,

Welcome to AnandTech Forums. Our forums are organized by different topics and areas of discussion. This forum is where our members communicate with our moderators about particular problems they may be experiencing on the forums, and this thread is about our forum guidelines.

I suggest you post your question on our Video forum, in the Video sub-forum.

You will probably get more useful replies sooner if you include more information about your problem, including info about the computer and the video card you are using.

We hope you enjoy yourself on our forums.

Harvey
