Read before Writing, ye Swabs¶
If ye be three-sheets-to-the-wind and wondering what the hell this Sponge thing be all about, gets a grip on yerself! Cast yer eyes upon the Questioning and Interrogation and rejoice.
If ye asks stupid questions like “Be Sponge a Forge Mod”, “When will the North wind blow” etc., we shall righteously keelhaul ye. Reads the SpongeDocs ye barnacled savages and figger it out.
Afore ye casts yer gibberish upon the innocent eyes o’ the Sponge Forums, be checking that it not be utter balderdash what has already bin said. Search ye, with the map (top right, matey) or rubs the salt from yer eyes and read the
Your topic be like... scroll what materialises when ye tries to create one yerself (and it be even clever ‘nuff to be updating as ye writes). So if there be a conversation like what you wants to holler about, then seat yer seafarer’s backside there or be shutting up about it!
Ye be not supposed to talk o’ the other thing. Every time they does, it be like one o’ them arguments in the tavern that only ever ends in chairs bein’ thrown out windows and good ale bein’ wasted. So minds yer P’s and Q’s if ye talks of them “other” APIs, or there be a piece o’ furniture with your name on it just waitin’ to knock on yer salt-wizened ‘ead.
Ye be still here? Go gets a drink ye fool, this be thirsty talk, and gets me one while ye be at it, I’ll take a triple rum. Then laugh at them Sponge resources in the Stories o’ Sponge. Nothin’ to see here me hearties, no Treasure maps. Go away home ye lubbers, throw darts at the Forum Announcements, or to track the progress o’ the good ship Sponge’s, follow them on Twitter or watch Sponge GitHub. If ye are be dangerous-keen to plunder, gaze at the richness of Givin’ to Cap’n Spongie.
Them Forum ‘Guidelines’¶
All them fancy-fangled legalese gibberish and cant they call ‘rules’ (we like to think o’ them as ‘guidelines’) canst be found in Ye Guidelines for Forum & Channels.
Cat-o-Nine-Tails and Yer Post¶
When ye me makin’ new topics, there be a drop down thingy to starboard o’ the title, what be used to set it’s category. Be makin’ sure that yer twaddle be somewhat like the category, all be having fancy words tellin ye what they be about. If that be meaning naught to ye, then stand to the mast for a good floggin’ with the Category-o-Nine-Tails, ye scurvy dog.
Get to work now ye lackluster land-lubber and clean the deck! Ye now belongs to cap’n Spongie, arr!
