    Starting immediately, we (the staff) will be editing threads to accurately represent the content of the thread. This means the title of many threads will be edited and possibly unrecognizable to the original poster.

    So, if you have a thread title "WOW!" and it shows an video of a pumpkin getting blown up, your title will be changed to ""pumpkin gets all blowed up" or some such.

    How can you help? You can help by titling all your threads in a manner that would make some dude on Google easily find what he is looking for. For example, if a man was on Google searching for "pumpkin murder", he would be directed to the thread listed above? Savy? Awesome!

    If you REALLY want to kick a ton of butt and be an uber elite internet assassin, you could add tags to the thread. Such things make it very easy for outsiders to be directed to our little wonderland.

    Thank you so much!

    Your moderator staff.

    That makes sense to me. But, I don't know what a "tag" is. :eek:

    A
    PHP:
    tag
    is a key word that makes searching easier, I believe. I don't know how to do that, though. Wait, there is a thingy to the right of # and <> above in the fancy edit thingies. Looks like you highlight a word and click on the
    PHP:
    .

    WellI tried that, and it did not work so well. *sigh*

    A tag is like a little tag that hangs out in the HTML code the underlying language of the interwebs. You would tag your 1911 thread with 1911 colt, Kimber, ect.... stuff like that. They are basic key words that search engines pick up on.

    Will the title be adjusted if there is a significant threadjack?

    Or if its one of our favorite conspiracy theorists, can we put a tin foil hat alert on the thread?

    I second the "tin foil hat" tag on certain threads.

    I guess a couple of things worthy of mention are if you post in an incorrect section, you'll probably just be deleted. It is far too much hassle to clean up behind those of you who simply refuse to pay attention to the appropriate places to post.

    Thread hijacks will probably get deleted too.

    Can you all mods and noblemen also edit the body of some of my posts to make me appear more knowledgeable and entertaining?
    Nothing much, some references and footnotes for starters. Maybe just crosscheck my facts and mold each of my posts into a witty, humorous read that is full of information and knowledge for the intellectual types without being too difficult for our average Neanderthal to follow.
    I know this may take a few extra moments so maybe split it up amongst yourselves. Also I'm not gonna ask any of you mods to worry about doing this for anybody else because I don't want to burden you.
    Thanks as always
    :D
