Why can't someone bring that back and integrate it into the etiquette? :<

There's many reasons to have scoring system for people, but there's just so much more reasons to NOT have it someones' personal opinion based.

It's genuinely a good thing this forum has no karma working.

EDIT: Well maybe this particular forum is an exception where people don't abuse this feature, standing out as in these "one to ten thousands". But I never seen it in action so I can't tell. Better safe than sorry, though.

But with karma in place, I could let it do my talking for me; think of the possibilities! I could post even less!

Anyways, uh, yeah! Nice guidelines. Pretty standard, you'd think these go without saying, but hey, whatever keeps the forum going! ^^

Just a question, how many warnings do I need (4, 5 or 6?) to be banned? and is it permanent?

you shouldn't be proud of that

I would like to suggest that the guideline includes that solved threads should be marked with [solved] at the beginning of the thread title by editing the first post. See last two bullets of https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fo ... ow_to_Post for an example.
lg.newImage("cat.png") -- made possible by lg = love.graphics
-- Don't force fullscreen (it frustrates those who want to try your game real quick) -- Develop for 1280x720 (so people can make HD videos)
