    I know for me I totally don't understand all the rules. So I thought maybe we all could help who ever is new here to understand more. I just found out you had to post 20 twenty times in 2 weeks to make you a regular. I do know you have to qualify to do different topics here. Also where do you find the rules. Thanks everyone for the help.

    Here are the general rules

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-30553-1.htm

    and actually you can post almost anywhere without the title- the exception-you can't list anything for sale until you have been a member for 90 days and have the title regular :thumbup:

    At the bottom of this page is the word "Main" Click on it and the first item is rules of the forum. See if this helps you and answer some questions. You do need to maintain 20 posts in a 2 week period to continue to be a "regular".

    You are supposed to have the "regular" or "community benefactor" to request freebies also.

    at the head of each section, on the left, it says "Create New Topic" - click on that to get started, it is easy.

    in addition to the general information at the top of the Main section, there are specific policies at the top of each of the other sections.

    i highly recommend that we all check them often to make sure we're up to date.

    yep. even me. :lol:

    Yes, maybe I'm just anal or weird but when I first joined I read all the rules for the various topics to better understand how the board works....still have to refresh my memory at times but I'm amazed at the number of members that have either been here for several years or others that have created tons of threads or responses that have never read the rules.

    Maybe my age is showing.....but I was always taught to read the rules or whatevers to understand what was right or not so proper in any given situation. :-D

    Me, too.

    Many times it seems to make life easier in the long run.

    I read most of them but didn't know there was rules posted in other sections. So I will read those as well. It always helps to know the rules...
