Guide to Adam Without Pity (AKA The MUPpet House)

NOTE: This is a discussion board for fans of Adam Lambert. If you do not care for Adam Lambert, this is not the place for you. Kindly hit your back button.


NEWBIES:

After registering, please introduce yourself on the main board, then head over to post your “personals” if you feel so inclined in the Meet Market area. Read about other members on the board too.

Check the FAQs for:

-The dictionary so you will be familiar with terms and acronyms commonly used on the boards
-Adam's family, friends and show-biz experience (just some background info).
-Discography, with links to all songs and the acronyms we use to discuss them.
-Look through the Media Thread for links to all of Adam's performances - pre-Idol, during Idol and post Idol, news stories and interviews & concert reviews and videos. Chances are, if it exists, we have a link to it here.

Don't be afraid to post. If you're new, don't be afraid to jump into a discussion. We love meeting new people and making new friends.

But also...feel free to lurk & listen. While we hope that you'll become an active participant and join in our discussions, you're welcome, of course, to simply hang out silently until you feel more comfortable posting a message.


POSTING GUIDELINES

AWoP will not tolerate rude or offensive posts directed toward another member. Don't attack individuals. Personal attacks on individuals will not be excused. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack.

Diversity of opinions and debate is welcome at AWoP. If you disagree with someone, post a well-reasoned rebuttal. You do not have the right to attack them or to simply label their views as irrelevant or misguided simply because you do not agree with what they say.

Further, don’t present your opinions as facts. A well-placed qualifier such as "I think..." or "I believe..." or "I see your point but..." makes a difference.

If a you have a problem with another member's posts, kindly PM a moderator. Don't start a fight on the board.

If you think someone has posted something that is inappropriate and/or should be deleted, PM a moderator. Don't PM the author or post in the thread about it.

Please refrain from making a debate personal.

Don’t post the same opinion over and over in the hopes of wearing other people down or "winning" a discussion; just move on. The scrollbar can be your friend in this instance.

Flaming, rude, or offensive posts will be deleted, and the offender warned by the mods. Continued warnings will result in removal from the forum.

Please trim posts and consolidate nested quotes if there are more than three.

If you are quoting a post that contains pictures, edit those out unless you are referring to a specific picture.

Please do not post consecutively if you can help it; simply edit the current post with your new thought.

Please refrain from unnecessary excessive profanity.

If you want to post an image in the thread you must host it yourself at a site such as Image Shack or Photobucket.

Please resize oversized photos before posting. Oversized photos that make the message board margins wonky are in danger of being deleted. (If your photo is deleted, a mod may PM you to let you know, and you can resize and post it up again. We will not do that for you.)

Read a few pages back (ideally, 3 to 5) before posting so that you can get a feel for the discussion and avoid posting the same things over and over again.

Remember that this is an Adam board and not a Kris, Allison, Danny, Clay, Drake, etc., board, and these other hapless folks may be snarked upon here at any time (since after all, it is an Adam board), but people should refrain from vicious or venomous posts toward them (OR their fandom).

* These guidelines are intended to ensure our happy family here stays that way.
