    Where are the rules?

    I have seen posts that talk about the "rules," but have not been able to find a listing of them. Can somebody provide a link?

    For example, this thread: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...nd-a-Sample-of

    Thanks!

    The user agreement is here http://www.straightbourbon.com/index...ks/forum-rules

    When in doubt, hit up a staff member with a question.

    Re: Where are the rules?

    Thanks Scott, but nowhere in the page you linked do I see a list of rules/behaviors/do's/don'ts that guys refer to....what I was looking for are the following:

    1) Where is the listing of the rule that smknjoe referred to in his comment "No, we can't do it. We are only allowed to say that we are looking for something and that's it. We need to stick to the other thread we have."

    2) Why did you lock the thread so quickly? Seems to me that somebody violated a rule, but it wasn't explained in the thread.

    Thanks!

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    3) How does a newbie find out who the staff are?

    Anyone with moderator under their name. And the names are highlighted in green.

    No, you see "Admin" under his name.

    1) The rule that smknjoe spoke of is for a specific thread that he linked to above.

    2) Sometimes when a thread is locked an explanation is left behind and sometimes not. We don't discuss moderator actions in the forums beyond that. I'm sure you understand.

    Staff members names are listed in red or green. There's more information here in the New User Guidelines post at the top of this forum.

    Re: Where are the rules?

    OC, SB is like any new group that you become affiliated with. You kinda gotta just hang around and size things up. It's pretty easy to pick up the flow here. If you're concerned on what may, or may not, be appropriate, PM a staff/moderator. They are more than happy to help.
