    icon16.gif ROTS NEW MEMBER FAQ! PLEASE READ!

    This FAQ is a helpful guide to how the forum works. UPDATED 10th July 2018.

    OK Lads and Lassies, you've just recently joined or are a member who needs some sort of refresher on how things work.

    Let's Start.

    GENERAL STUFF:
    1. Neo-geo.com is a private site with it's own user base. The members here range from "The people who just want an easy life" to "The mildly psychotic and damn right rude". You will have to get use to that. So don't get all surprised if someone calls you silly names or decides to beat on you.

    2. If you are a new/low post count ratio member etc etc. Heading straight to the market place without any contributions to the main site will inevitably lead to confrontation with the regular members. Bear this in mind before you go in there.

    3. There is a SEARCH Feature, Top right on the forum page. I'd suggest you use it as it can prove helpful in stopping people beating on you due to having the same questions posed over and over again.

    FORUM MODERATION:
    1. The Forum Moderators generally let things slide. The Forum Mods usually do NOT advertise themselves as Mods and so you better find out who these people are.

    2. There is usually a Mod onsite at all times. SOME of these guys can be grumpy, mildly aggressive and slightly barmy. It would be highly adviseable to make a mental note of the ones to avoid.

    CHAT ROOM:
    1. There is an Official neo-geo.com chat room. It can be highly useful and offers real-time chat and support, depending on who is in there.

    2. The current guys in charge of that will be highlighted as ADMIN. You will find that they know how chat works.

    LAST NOTE, It's not ALL bad lads and lassies. Neo-geo.com is one of the Oldest, BEST websites for:
    Technical Help.
    Community.
    General Funstering.
    Market Place.

    Our member base includes some of the best guys around the Gaming scene.

    HOWEVER, If you find it isn't for you. You will find a logout button TOP RIGHT.

    PS. I may add to this at any time. You may request additions to the FAQ in THIS THREAD!

    OLD FAQ - NOW DEFUNCT! ARCHIVED!

    Welcome to the Neo-Geo.com Forums: home of the Neo-Community.

    In no particular order (since you should read it all)
    • If you're relatively new to the Neo-Scene, you may want to look at our Neo Glossary: A quick guide for Newbies and a refresher for Vets…
    • Take a look at DanAdamKOF's New Member FAQ (slightly out-of-date) for guidance on how our forum works.
    • Do you have a question but think it may have been asked recently? Try our "Search" function at the top of the page. Important hint: Do NOT use common words like "the", "a", or even "Neo"; too many hits and the search will not work. It's more art than science, but some of us have got it to find all sorts of stuff. It helps if you can also narrow down which forums it might be in.
    • Want to know more about the more notable historical moments on these forums? Take a look through our "Best of" forum, full of some of the more notorious and/or funny threads of the past.
    • You may quickly notice that our forums have a higher tolerance than most when it comes to swearing, flaming and general tomfoolery. This is true, and proud we are of it. However, don't feel like you're the one who's going to push those limits. Our bullshit tolerance is not all that high, and we will squash any irritating Spartacuses in short order.
    • Members here may come off as a little more cynical, snarky and generally harsher than what you might be used to. This doesn't apply to all our members, but it's part of what gives this forum its particular character and comes in line with the previous point. Don't take it personal, roll with it and you may find out why we have such a loyal userbase.


    So, again: Welcome to Neo-Geo.com:
    Come for the games, stay for teh Drama
