Important issues.

These are some things that I wanted to bring to everyone's attention.
Recently, we have had some issues with members giving advice to other members and arguements starting because the advice was ignored or was not taken.Please remember that it is up to the person asking for the advice whether or not they want to take it. You can't shove advice down people's throats. Treat people the way you want to be treated. We try to maintain a friendly atmosphere here at
Also, posting silly memes and making snide little comments doesn't help a situation nor does making fun of someone. All it does is add fuel to the fire. On the other hand, I have seen several members step in and try to calm things down and get back on topic. A big thank you to those members.
I also want to point out that blatantly disrespecting and smartmouthing a moderator or Admin can get you banned. We do our best to help people by answering questions and helping with all kinds of different issues. We don't deserve to be yelled and screamed at or told we don't do our jobs properly and favor our friends over others.
Lastly, I want to say that I love this forum and I love interacting with everyone. Let's all work together to keep this forum the great place that it is .

Thank you DQ! It's a bit ridiculous that we need a sticky as a reminder to be kind, but it is necessary:/

The results are in!
