Not a sandbox!!!!

Post by noncyr » Wed Jan 26, 2005 11:13 pm

While sometimes we can learn a lot from how people handle certain situations, this forum is not the sandbox of your local middle school.

Let's try not to make this one of those "Dude, this fight was harsh and I totally cracked some heads!"* type of deals.

Thank You.

*Unless the head cracking taught a valuable lesson about survival, zombies or both.

Just a reminder...

This section of the forum is for posting reports of survival-related personal experiences. It is not a livejournal. This is not the place for topics like

"I'm being audited by the IRS!"

"3rd anniversary of my divorce"

"Almost busted while committing criminal mischief"

and so on.

If you have a lesson to share after coping with an emergency, disaster, or difficult situation, then please post.

This forum is often used by individuals looking for advice on certain topics in their day to day prepping based on how they succeeded or failed. There is nothing wrong with this, however please be sure to come in here with story and be asking for tips and advice. Also ask yourself if it really belongs in personal experiences.

There are hundreds of threads on topics like starting gardens, building houses, killing zombies and self defense. Unless you're telling the story of what happened to you and what you learned from it, none of them belong in this section. Coming in here and posting HAY GUYZ, WHAT KINDA HOUSE SHUD I BUILD? is NOT acceptable behaviour. If you come in with a detailed plan and layout and ask for tips, on the house you've designed and are in the process of building that might be.

Please consider carefully before posting here.
