What Should NOT Go in the "New Scratchers" Forum

I've seen a lot of threads that don't belong in the “New Scratchers” forum going around, so I figured we needed guide about it.

1. Don't Ask for Followers

We all know you want to be recgonised for your work, and followers are fun, but the “New Scratchers” forum isn't the right place to ask. Try in your signature, or on your profile.

2. Don't Spam/Necropost

The same goes with any forum, but this one needs a special reminder. Spam makes it harder for Scratchers to find New Scratchers to welcome, and that's never a good thing. Necroposting has the same result.

3. Don't Create “Introduce Yourself Here!” Posts

New Scratchers are actually more likley to get welcomed if they make their own topic. Plus, it helps keep the forums neater. If you want to help welcome some New Scratchers, look for some threads they made.

4. Don't Make a Guide to Scratch

You may love helping out the community, I do too, but making a guide doesn't help too much. There are already enough helpful guides stickied, we don't need any more. Even if you just REALLY want to help New Scratchers, guides are considered spam because we already have enough. You can help out simply by welcoming some New Scratchers, in fact, that would be great!

Thanks for reading this guide to what NOT to post in the “New Scratchers” forum.

Please let me know if you find any spelling or grammar errors, or know anything I should add to this guide.

Ooh, this should be helpful! ^^ I think this is a good idea.
You may have covered this already, but how about not posting something like “hi, im new” to the bottom of someone else's post – aka, making your own topic for introducing yourself?

That might get kinda misleading, people thinking they can't post.

Hmmm…maybe something like this, then? “Don't Introduce Yourself in Someone Else's Thread” and then explain why they should start their own?

Also, if you'd like to catch any grammar errors, you misspelled “likely” under #3! :-)

I'm just thinking people might read to fast and see “Don't Introduce Yourself”

Ah, true. Makes sense :') But we do have a problem currently with New Scratchers trying to introduce themselves right below everyone else. I don't quite know how to properly address that issue, then. :0
