Bump! I just edited the top post of this thread to remove some old rules (remember when sheared sheep didn't regrow wool?) and clean up and add some new ones. I also sloughed off most of the old posts to this other thread
so this Guidelines thread can stay up top with just the essentials.
New members are still encouraged to post in this thread to introduce themselves!
I'll periodically move new posts off to the other thread as they age out.
