 Welcome New Members 

Welcome to our group.  We are a quick growing community and we have a few new rules & regulations that we are going to implement. 

Effective September 1, 2005, we will have a Monthly Sign-in Board.  We ask all members sign in at least once in a six-month period.  Each month we will start a new message thread on the sign-in board asking a question about As The World Turns.  We invite you to share your views in our Monthly Sign In thread or simply post a message saying, Signing in.

The Monthly sign in is being designed to help with the population of our group.  We have a small handful of our members that post on a regular basis. 

This brings us to another topic.  If during a two-month period, you have not signed in, your membership will be cancelled and you will need to re-join the group.  After your membership has been cancelled twice, due to lack of signing in, you will be cancelled. To alleviate this problem, please sign in; this is the only way we can control memberships here. It only takes a moment to simply reply to the current sign-in thread.

As always, we will NOT tolerate spamming of any kind.  We have a zero tolerance for spamming on the board for this kind of thing.  If you send spam to our group, your membership will be voided.  We are a family here, and we wish to keep our board as it is today. 

On a final note, the Management team will be notifying you of any new & exciting changes as they come to light. We welcome any suggestions you may have.

ATWT Posting Guidelines

When You Post......

PLEASE DON'T FLAME!  

Differing opinions are welcome here (variety is, as they say, the  spice of life). But we don't want flaming of other members.  We are all part of a "family" here and treat each other in the spirit of friendship and mutual respect!

 Simply follow the golden rule.....

When posting, treat others as you'd like to be treated -- don't be insulting, don't question other's intelligence and sanity just because their view may differ from yours, and Watch your language!  Everyone who posts on this board is a real person, just like you .  (Also remember that actors, writers, and producers are all real people and deserve a little respect and kindness too.)

We also ask that you keep in mind the second golden rule?It is a soap. Characters on a soap are not real people.  Don't let mass opinion sway you or dissuade you from posting your own opinions.  You can disagree without flaming. You can set forth a different point of view without attacking someone else personally.  If someone disagrees with you, that DOES NOT automatically mean that they are flaming you.  Don't immediately take offense when someone offers a different point of view. If you have the misfortune of being flamed, DON'T respond by flaming back. 

As it's been said on our boards, "There is a difference between bad acting (Celia, in most viewers humble opinion) and bad character actions (Craig).  To not separate the two takes the fun out of watching and posting!"

So have fun and speak your mind!!!  However be aware that posts which violate our golden rules may be deleted at management's discretion (we have a great membership and we intend to keep it that way)


Also we attempt to respect the Spoiler Free by not posting spoilers, rumors, and cast comings and goings in your subject headings!

If you want to discuss something that is going to happen in the future, (including cast members comings and goings), please do not write about it in the subject heading for your post; "hint" around it by saying "SPOILER: Jack & Carly or CASTING NEWS" or something in that vein.  Also always include, in the actual body of your post, a warning that a spoiler/rumor/cast change is going to be discussed, and then leave some space between your warning and the rest of your message.  REMEMBER: Some of our members prefer to be surprised about future ATWT storylines and events!

Also -Do not post in ALL CAPS (capital letters) or gratuitously large letters. Either make your message harder to read (thereby causing some people to skip it entirely), and some people consider it the same as shouting (and you're not really shouting are you). So, unless you have good reason to shout, please keep to regular font sizes and sentence/lower cases.

Please: Do not start new threads without checking the board first to see if a thread on the same topic has already been started. If it has, put your post under that thread as a reply. This way relevant threads will stay on the first page longer, instead of being pushed off the page by repetitive posts.

All posts violating the guidelines are subject to deletion at the managers' discretion.
 Thanks for taking the time to review our policies - we'll see you on the boards!
