    Default The Where's Waldo rule

    Posts asking where is everyone or so and so or who do you miss the most, will be deleted. This creates unnecessary drama. Contact the people/person. Don't post it to the forums. The rumor mill goes wild thinking someone is banned. People have real lives. 99% of the time, when the post is made asking where they are, they are on the forums or were in the last 24 hrs. The fact remains, that people come and go ALL the time. Not everyone is here daily. The majority, are choosing to not be here. Sometimes temporarily, sometimes for good.

    The forums are not a shrine to those people that choose to be quiet, are busy, leave, are drama queens, or simply keep to themselves for whatever reason.

    These posts will be deleted. Continued infractions will result in banning.

    It's ok. I mentioned that I needed to do this in a recent post. New members join and aren't aware of the rules. Even older members might not be aware of them. They are available in the footer of the site and upon registration, but I should have been more clear a long time ago. I mentioned last week that I might send an automatic welcome packet upon registration, but having it posted all in one place, is the best way.

    Good thing I read this...the other day I was thinking about posting one of those "where is good old so-and-so" threads. People do come and go so maybe this person will come back soon.

    Sara, though I understand your reasoning for the rule reminder, the subject made me giggle for my neighbour truly is Waldo. Red and white stripped hat and shirt with the shaggy brown hair and glasses. Hahahaha - he IS the cartoon picture.
