    General Discussion Rules

    1) This section is for discussion of miscellaneous topics that do not fit into another site section. If another section (like Help, Neopets Chat, Movies/TV, Debate Zone etc.) suits your intended topic better, please post it there instead. The key word here is "discussion"- if it is not a topic that will generate meaningful discussion, it will be moved to SPAM. Posting a meme, for example, belongs in the SPAM section.

    2) All posts in this section must be a minimum of 1 sentence long, and need to include an explanation of why. This is to encourage people to not only state their view on a topic, but to provide evidence/examples that support their opinions. For example: "My favourite breed of dog is dachshund, because they have such adorably silly little body shapes and are very affectionate."

    3)
    Linking sources is not mandatory, but is encouraged if relevant.

    4) Posts must be respectful and civil. While there will undoubtedly be people of opposing viewpoints, any flaming or harassment will not be permitted.



    If these rules are not met, you'll first receive a PM with a verbal warning from staff. After this is a formal warning through the site's system. Beyond this will lead to infractions/being barred from this section.

    Getting far too many people not reading the actual topic (e.g., do you miss high school = not asking when you graduated) and/or not including an explanation.
