A greatly increasing number of threads posted in the news forums are not following the guidelines - and some blatantly ignore them. Please use the exact formatting outlined above. Nobody is going to complain if you use [Inq] or [Inquirer] instead of [TheInq], but please use the "[" and "]" leading and trailing the prefix. It allows for easy readability, a clean look, and better information on the contents of a thread.

Thank you, as always, for your cooperation in making our news forums a great place to read and learn.

Just a friendly reminder

Please include prefixes in all your news threads. A lot of members are not following these simple guidelines.

Thank you

We would like to remind our members of this rule:
https://www.overclock.net/news-overcl...ting-news.html

Especially this paragraph:
Quote:
Quote the essential paragraph of the story BUT NOT the entire article
We will give the members a 2 week timespan, and if they do not meet posting guidelines by then we will start handing out warnings.

Just a reminder. I've seen an unusually high number of news posts recently that are NOT formatted properly or even at all. Mind posting guidelines here and in the other news sections. Thank you.
