Rules of "Engagement" aka Code of Conduct
With the growing popularity of Disney Weddings and Honeymoon forums we are excited to see so many new posters here. To help both new and "not so new" posters we would like to remind everyone of some board basics.
Rules of "Engagement"
aka Code of Conduct
Follow the Board Guidelines To keep the boards a friendly, fun and informative place there are some basic guidelines that need to be followed (and which you agreed to when you signed up). These include but are not limited to: No For Sale Posts, No Profanity, No Fighting, No Personal Messages, and No Advertising. Posts that do not adhere to these guidelines may be deleted. Repeated offenses could cost the poster use of their posting privileges.
If you have any questions about clipart, timers, avatars the best place to go is the Tech board, and the folks there will be most happy to help you.
Who is reading my posts? The short answer to this is everyone! The DIS is a public board and as such, anyone on the internet can read your posts, this includes family members and Disney. The best rule to follow is: If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't say it here. Take it in a PM to your friend or a close confident. Words hurt. Remember, that you are starting a new life. You would not want to say something that could cause hard feelings for 20 years or more. As mods, we will NOT delete posts where you did not realize that the DIS is a public forum. The DFTW staff does read this board.
Treat your fellow posters with respect. We all have our own opinions and all opinions are welcome as long as they are posted in a respectful manner. It is also helpful to read an entire thread before posting. What might have been a heated discussion on the first couple of pages might have been resolved later on and just posting to the original post just frustrates the other posters. Remember that what is right for one poster and their situation might not be right for others. The moderators of this forum and the DIS Webmasters have zero tolerance for attacks on other people. This will cause you to receive an infraction.
Stay on topic. Often as part of the planning experience you might have questions on other things like WDW, transportation, or photography. There are separate boards set up on the DIS for all those topics and you will get your best answers on those boards. At times a post may be moved from the Weddings and Honeymoon forum to one of these other boards with a redirect so that you can find your post.
How is the best way to reach a mod? The best way to reach one of us is to report a post. You can report a post by going to the bottom of the post and in the corner opposite of the quote button is a red triangle with an exclamation point in it. That button will automatically send an email to all of us as well as starts a thread on the moderator forum.
Some Other Helpful Links For Board Use
What is a DH? What does IMHO mean? Discussion board Abbreviations here you will find a very helpful list of all the abbreviations you may encounter while reading and posting
I have a picture I want to post but need a place to store it. As a registered member of the DIS you have some space to store your pictures. You can also browse others galleries and rate and leave messages for the photographers.DIS Photo Gallery
Why do people wear lime green ribbons or buttons? Lime green has become the "official" color of the DIS. Many times DISers wear lime green ribbons so that other DISers can recognize them. The DISers who originated the idea, did so to make sure it was an unusal color that would stand out. It's a way to get to meet other DISers.
What are tag fairies (or who put those colorful messages under my name)? Tag Fairies are magical beings who visit the boards, and grace people with tags under their usernames. You never know when they are going to strike, or where....you just have to believe. BTW - the tag fairy does not like to see people begging for a tag. Just have fun on the boards and be surprised when it happens.

I'm also new and I am struggling to understand some of the abbreviations. I noticed the paragraph that mentioned them but is there a specific place where they all are listed? Thanks
