That's the problem. We don't have any rules.I think I am supposed to make them, hence my asking you guys, lol.
If i might say, i think that you are in the right place. This place has been a wealth of information for me. I started out much like yourself asking questions -- my predecessor, the original moderator, had left our forum. I learned things here.
Then eventually I got to a point where i was able to convince our forum's owner to invest some capital in an upgrade. And years later the owner credited myself, in so many words, from preventing our forum from going down the toilette.
good luck to you,
