there are a couple of things have have been driving me nuts recently.

1. when people make a thread and they have a lot to say and they like to write in complete sentences. they write well thought out and cohesive sentances with real words (not sentances like: y do u think the otts are OP?). Then people come, skip the whole post and post right below it something like: that's too long, I'm not going to read it.

If you dont want to spend the time reading it, then don't. However, please don't waste everyone elses time because they might be interested in the thread and if they have to read through 10 posts of people saying "U rite 2 much, I=lazy" then it wastes my time.

2. suggesting things to ES is fine. but why tell them their game sucks. if it sucks then don't buy it. if you already bought it then that was your own mistake. how would you like it if you worked on something for 3 years and then when you got were done with it somebody started telling you it was shit. remember that ES employees are people too, and they only read these forums because they find it a constructive way to spend their time. if it becomes a flame fest here they will just not bother reading the forums again.

that's all I have for now. hopefully it's short enough for those of you that I'm speaking to in item 1.

Excellent points, but your post is kind of long (just kidding!!!!!!)

Such posts are considered spam, and are dealt with as appropriate.

Any thread that incites flaming/trolling will be closed. Unproductive topics such as "this game really sucks" will also be closed.

I can ad to your list:

Be a bit tollerant. Don`t make fun of people if you don`t understand their question or remark. Accept that there are millions of people playing games, with different backgrounds, knowledge, et.

Long posts are what drew me to this forum WAYYYY back in 1999 when it was about AOE1. I remember reading long indepth articles written by your average players and interesting debates between them.

What really annoys me is when the topic post is only a few lines long and people are not only too lazy to read it, but then spend more time than it would have taken to read the post telling people that they don't like to read.
