Default Where's the FAQ?

Is there a FAQ?

I need rules to live by, otherwise I go all wonky...

Welcome, Omar. We do not allow members to go all wonky, but they can start off that way and stay that way, just: no changing.

Here's the FAQ.

THE CYA legal stuff is here: http://thisbluemarble.com/faq.php?fa..._usage#faq_aup

The short and sweet version is:

Behave yourself in the public forums. Go to thisbluemarble.com and look on the right side. All the forums listed there are "public". That means they are spidered by search engines (just because we have some great information we want to share with others) so we try to keep them rated G. Most of the time. Sorta. Guests can see whatever you write in any of those forums and we like to pretend we're nice. So, don't sell Viagra, don't be obscene, don't attack other members, etc. Act like you're in my living room, and sober.

The "Downstairs" is a bit more relaxed. That's the Lounge, etc. Those forums are members only. Not spidered. Just for us. Relax and be amongst friends.

The lowest of the low is the Dungeon and Hell. You have to ask to get into those forums because there's a lot of X rated stuff there and the Dungeon is the one place you ARE allowed to call out other people on their behavior (or lack thereof) so it can get nasty. Yeah, I know... we have rules keeping everyone civilized upstairs then it's no holds barred downstairs. The 'asking' part is so you know what you are getting yourself into and don't act all shocked once your virgin eyes see the Booby thread.

I usually end this with, "if you have any questions, ask." But you seem to have that figured out.
