I don't and I keep coming back to them once in a while. But I can say that I know a lot after going back to them periodically. It helps me to keep my discussions within the bounds of the rules and guidelines. It is an unpleasant experience to have one's discussions deleted and worse one's accout. How about you my friend? Do you still have the need to refer back to them once in a while?

I read guidelines so many times. But whenever i am going to post a response i am reading it again. It is irritating me sometimes. But as a forgetting person i have to do it.

I agree with your point of view, I have not look the guidelines when I join the web. I usually,when necessary, so that I go to see the guidelines. But, it maybe bring some trouble if we do not know the rules.

I don’t think I know any of the guidelines by heart except the fact that we cannot insult anybody and that too , coz its mainly my nature to be as polite as possible. I don’t remember ever having gone thru them either…maybe I have violated the rules and maybe my discussions and responses have got deleted but I haven’t really noticed. Responding here is much more interesting.

I check the FAQ for time to time just to remind myself of the rules and guideline her in myLot. I didn't knew it by heart but at least I'm trying to avoid doing the bad things that might affect my status here. Have a bad experience about removing one of my accounts in other sites which I don't want to happen again.

I did read all the guidelines here on mylot. I do know that I do not remember all of the guidelines by heart. I figure if I need to know about something I can just check the guideline page.

Although I became a member three years ago, I was absent for two years. On reading the guidelines on my return I found a number of new things. Having read through them, I wouldn't say I am fully conversant with them, but I think I understand the most important ones. Thanks for the reminder. I think I need to refresh my memory again.

Honestly, no! That is why I keep on going back to Guideline Page if I am not sure of something here. If I don't find the answer, I send support ticket. It is better to be sure than feel sorry.

As often as once I read the manual and read again sometimes miss things, I also have a restriction of remembering something. We need someone who guides us to success in achieving progress.

Hi manong, well I read and absorbed them so know what is recommended and what to avoid. If I'm not sure there's always Mys there to pm over a quick point. I do find it odd though that when flagrant breaches of the guidelines are made they can be ignored even when reported as requested to admin. A certain user flagrantly made a TOS violation on one of my discussions recently and even though it was reported and his remarks removed, along with most of the other remarks he's made everywhere else, his account still stands. So it seems that violations by some are acceptable.

The guidelines should be on everyone's finger tips. Without knowing them by heart we are in the dark which result in us being penalized. I do go back to the guidelines once in a while to refresh myself especially when any of my discussions get deleted. I will quickly go back to the guidelines to see where I went wrong. Sometimes it doesn't show anywhere in the guidelines that I have broken any of the rules there. But the admin has the absolute discretion to delete discussions that they feel is too controversial or doesn't meet their approval.

I am almost a year in the site and I can not confidentially say that I know all mylot guidelines by heart. Just like you, from time to time, I go back to the guidilines, just a while ago I have visited the guidelines because i have posted one discussion and checked if it is against the guidelines, but I believe sooner or later i will learn to adopt or will I say to absorb all the guidlines in the site.happy mylotting

No, I cannot confidentially say that. Like you, I keep referring to them once in a while. This especially so when I read some discussions here about deletions, cancellations, violations and guidelines being posted by other members. As I learn from their discussions, I also find the need to refer to the established mylot guidelines. Yes, it would also be such a waste of time and effort to have our post or account deleted.

I have read the guidelines and faqs many times. But still I miss something here and there.Sometimes other members point out my mistakes and I learn from them. So, I surely cannot say I know all mylot guidelines by heart.
