PostSubject: Introductions sub-forum rules.   Thu Apr 23, 2009 4:58 am



Due to the abundance of spammed introductions on various other forums, I'd like to stop the trolling with a few simple introductory elements. Please read this as a guide to introducing yourself to the Guild Scape community.

If you want to create an introduction for yourself to try and get to know some of the Guild Scape community members, can you please include some relevant information to do with your current World of Warcraft status? It would be remotely useful if and when other community members try finding you in the zone. This information could be your grounds to creating new friendships within the world. I seriously don’t see the point coming here and starting a thread that says something along the lines of "yeah hi, I'm a noob. =)"

This really says nothing about you at all. What would be much better is to post how long you've been playing World of Warcraft, perhaps why you joined, what classes you like to play etc. If you want you could also include information about yourself such as your name, age, location, your taste in music, interests in sports, academia, any other hobbies you might be involved with and/or your job status i.e. student, working, or full time pro-gamer!

Providing such information would hopefully prevent the spam of "hi" posts that generally fill most introduction sub-forums. Instead you could perhaps be found by a group of people with the same interests and might find your time on World of Warcraft to be much more enjoyable, extending to clans and friendships.

That being said, here are a few logically founded ideas:

Quote :
1. Do NOT create threads that are just spam (such as broadcasting to the world that you are a noob). You do not need to include all the fields I have mentioned but a few would make an ample introduction, the rest is at your discretion.

Quote :
2. Do NOT reply to a thread with "hi" or continuously scroll through this subforum to find users that have introduced themselves and say hi to them. Please take the time to consider that if this person has gone through the process of providing the information I have suggested in this post, that you should reply if you have a common interest and really have the intention of making them feel welcome on Guild Scape. Saying "hi" and then abandoning the thread gives off a negative image of you as a player and is considered spamming. Please refrain from spamming.

I guess I'll include my introduction to kick this off!


Hi I'm Twilight (Also revered as ‘Dan the Merciful’), I've some-what been here since the beginning and I'm generally on World of Warcraft. As for my Horde characters 100% of them are blood elf and for my Alliance character/s which is currently limited to one is a Draenei. As for my Horde characters they are in clan ‘Antipathy’ and my Alliance character is still on the road to creating a clan.

My main characters include;

TwilightFang – Level 70 Blood Elf Paladin – ‘Antipathy’


TwilightClaw – Level 70 Draenei Shaman – ‘Pending’

As for music I like techno, classical and most main-stream music, I’m currently in my gap year working part-time as I graduated last year and intend to join the canine division in the police force next year. I’m to turn 18 as of September and currently live in Australia, W.A. My personality… I suppose I’m quite childish and hyper. I could also say I’m quite overbearing and bossy, though once you get to know me I can be quite a compassionate and sweet person.

Thanks for reading over this.

(Note* As I’m a moderator of this sub-forum I’ll be keeping an eye out for mindless spam. This goes to the mod squad too, try and set a good example for the new recruits.)

Kind regards,
