When a new user posts, simply refer to both of these guidelines. I want to emphasise the terminology too, as the term rules can be daunting to eager new users. And i do apologize if my previous E-mail was a bit harsh, i dont want to offend i only want to make sure that the community itself strives to better itself. There would be nothing worse then finally reaching R1 with a community that simply wasnt ready to socialise with the world :-).
