Some guidelines

Here's where you can discuss all general diecast stuff - mystery items, ask who made a model of a particular car, ask for info about an obscure manufacturer or chat about anything else related to vehicles smaller than 1:1 scale!

TOPIC: Some guidelines

I'd like to address an issue that has come up lately. I've noticed a lot more text shorthand being used in posts. I have to go and find one of my sons to help me decipher some of the posts, and this has become an irritant to several members. I'd ask that we limit the use of the shorthand so that those of us who do not speak text can read the posts without the use of a surly, exasperated teenager or a link to the urban dictionary. I know to some of you this will seem like a nitpicking complaint, and I ask that you remember we are an international site with people from all over the planet stopping in looking for information and it's difficult to try and interpret some of these abbreviations, some if not most I've never seen myself. Not all of the folks who stop in know all the abbreviations used in diecast collecting, or have the access to the above mentioned surly teen to help out. Thank you, Rob

Another issue popping up is the wandering way off topic in some of these posts. I haven't been here as much as I'd like lately, and some  of these topics are so far off subject that I have to start back on page one to see what the original subject is. Let's try not to stray too far off the reservation, and keep the posts on topic as much as possible. Thank you, Rob

I will agree with Rob on both points made above. I don't have a teenager in close proximity to me anymore so can't ask and have to try to figure it out on my own. Gets frustrating and I seem to loose the tread and have to start over when I do figure it out. Makes for a long session when your a moderator and need to watch all posts over the whole site. Most are fine but I need to catch the jerks that are here to disrupt us or post spam or porn. Don't need or want them here so if we can refrain from the obscure abbreviations and the quick text stuff it will make my job a lot easier and also for the other mods here, not to mention all the watchers and readers we have coming and going. Lets all try to act like adults here.
