Post WAR Guide
WAR Guide: Where to post what, and how to get there and back in one piece.

Recruitment Centre: New Viewers visit here first. This will give you a good idea of what you'll find on the WAR without needing to sift through thousands of posts and topics.

Welcome to the WAR: The SysOP's (that's System Operator for those not savvy in BBS lingo) introduction, Moderator Introductions, and the guide you are reading right now.

Rules & Registration: How to register for a posting account, and how to keep it by not doing anything silly. The rules are separated into two groups:
1) Stuff that will get you banned forever (and possibly the cops called)
2) Stuff that will get you warnings, smacks upside the head, and eventually, your account locked.

Mess Hall: Free-for-all, off topic, and general discussion.

Boot Camp: The main portion of the WAR's creative element.

The Die and Paper Pub: Here people can create, organize and participate in online RPG games, talk about video games, hobbies and other pastimes, or link to similar resources across the internet.

Omnimedia: Basically 'what you think is cool'. Topics in this area range from the best music to listen to while painting flowers, to reviews on semiautomatic pistols. More common topics will be about Anime and Movies, but anything interesting you'd like to share goes here.

Museworks: This area is the best place to start if you're stuck on a difficult chapter, need inspiration for something to draw, or need to flesh out characters, situations and ideas. Got something fresh off the presses? Post it here and run it through a review or two. Not a writer, musician or an artist? Not to worry, we won't prejudice against any medium. If it's legal, and you can scan it in, photograph it, or somehow convert it into a TRON-scape, we want to see it.

The Front: When the kids-gloves need to come off. Here you'll find some of the best and the worst. Be prepared for flames, but for those willing to brave them, you can fight honesty, life-changing messages, and brilliance of many kinds. The Moderators will only step in if insults turn personal.

Rants, Manifestoes and Flamewars: The home of opinions, positive or negative. Also, due to the tendency for certain topics to degenerate into heated arguments, you'll find the topics of Politics, Religion, and occasionally Pizza-Toppings and Sports Teams in here.

Subversive Literature: Cutting edge books, political manifestoes, social changes and massive attacks on society in general can go here. Anything that makes one challenge the status quo, or inspires one to do so.

Trial By Fire: An inside joke gone terribly, terribly wrong - this area will contain some of the weirdest, strangest...and occasionally perverse material you're likely to stumble across. Can you withstand the trial by fire? If so, you're pretty much ready for anything.
