    Forum Rules
    1. Remember OPSEC. Please don't post anything of a classified nature. If you're in doubt, don't post it. The life, career, and safety of real people are more important than making an e-point here.
    2. Trolling is NOT allowed. We don't care what you think about our job, our president, our wars, etc. If you want to debate, go to on-topic. If you want to rant and flame, go to off-topic.
    3. Again - This is NOT a debate forum. Do not use this forum just to see what kind of response you can get from the military crew. If you do, don't get your panties in a twist when the thread is moved, locked, or deleted, and you are warned, purged, or banned.
    4. No extended inter-service bashing. Rough-housing in Teh Barracks will get you a timeout in teh cooler. :squint:
    5. No extended trashing of foreign military forces. The foreigner you trash today may be the one that cover's your back tomorrow. Except for the French, because they will never be there for you anyway.
    6. Remember the UCMJ. Members of the military (including Reservists and Guard) who post here do not enjoy the same rights as civilians. Remember that military types can be punished for things they say here that civilians wouldn't think twice about.
    7. Be respectful. We are all professionals. Be nice to each other, the wannabes, and the gonnabes. Especially if they are deploying or heading off to basic, AIT, or SOI. Personal threats will not be tolerated.
    8. Nothing Illegal. Do not post about anything that you even have to question the legality of. Do not give advice to forum members to do anything illegal.
    9. No NWS pictures. This is not afterhours! No post of dead/injured civvies, military members (of either side), or other NWS. If you've got some naked pics of some fine air force chicks, feel free to pm them to one of your mods first for a quick once-over.
    10. NO POSTING OF ANYONE'S BASIC TRAINING MAILING ADDRESS! Harsh Action will be taken up with SMOD's.
    11. Post your info in the who are you? thread to introduce yourself. Just post your info and an introduction if you want. Any conversational posts will be deleted; that is what the rest of the forum is for.
    PLEASE READ THIS THREAD BEFORE POSTING: Joining the Military FAQ

    Forum Mods are Ranger-AO, and Jyokker.
    Please PM either one of us if you have any suggestions or concerns with the Forum.
