Hi everyone! This is a super old post but I wanted to bump it since I'm seeing some rule-breaking and I don't like banning any more than you do! PLEASE please follow the rules, and report posts that don't.
Hi everybody! Since we’ve seen some questions come up on the board, here’s an FAQ post for you! Please read, especially if you’re new to the Scholastic message boards, but even if you’re not! And you can find the complete list of rules HERE!
The basic rules are:
No last name, schools, or cities (first names and states are okay).
Age/grade is ok but no birthdays.
No posting your email address, links to other websites, or your usernames for other websites.
No being mean, rude, or cursing.
No attachments or pictures allowed.
No star farming (meaning, do not make a post that asks people to star -- or NOT to star -- the post).
Why isn't my post appearing on the front page? Can you put it there? Posts are released as we moderate them. We often approve batches of posts at a time, and unless we make a sticky thread, we have no control over which page a topic appears on.
Can you make my post a sticky thread??? Sorry -- we wish we could do this with so many great threads, but we would have PAGES of them. We use sticky threads for AWESOMESAUCE info from Tui, or for special posts like our Spotlight on… posts, story starters, etc….
My post doesn't explicitly break any of those rules...why was it edited or deleted? We reserve the right to edit and delete your posts. We may do this if we think you're sharing too much personal information, being inappropriate, or if the subject is not appropriate for the message board. Some topics that are not appropriate are religion and politics and your personal love lives. We are here to protect your privacy. You should never share your name, contact information, location etc. with strangers on the Internet. There is so much to talk about with Wings of Fire, and that’s what we’re all here for!
What is this "Report Post" button? Use this to let the moderators know if any rules are broken in a post that may have slipped by us -- it can happen!
Can I post in another language? No. Please stick to English. A moderator might know another language but we can't count on that, or Google translator. And we need to be able to read each message.
Thanks everybody! Hope this is helpful!
