    Citing your sources -- PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    All,

    As we are a growing forum, and hope to continue to add members daily, I wanted to make a point about properly citing borrowed works. Many of us read articles posted on other websites/forums or from various magazines and books. While what we read may resound as ideas, sentiments, and theories that are seemingly common, or inherent to our own gameplay, it is absolutely vital that we always share our source of information. Whether it's a simple weblink, or the title, page and author, these measures will ensure that both you as the poster, and this website, as the host, will not be sought out for violation of intellectual property laws.

    So, please, make sure to always post your source. If you have questions about citing, feel free to PM me and I can offer insight. Take care and happy postings =)

    Since I don't read much, I suppose I won't have to worry about the issue of citing.....all my cleverness comes straight from me LOL

    But I would like to say that you sound like my worst nightmare of an English teacher......yuck you, sir

    And for someone who is so funny about grammar, you made reference to a "porcelain thrown" in your blog.....last time I checked, it was a throne.

    Sweet, he can join me in the great world of "normal, everyday people who make mistakes."

    Ironically, we were just doing Irish songs in 1st grade and they refer to a ham sandwich in one of the songs.....and I laughed every time I heard a child say "ham sandwich" and thought of the great all-knowing Charlton and his "thrown" LOL
