A Guide To Being A Successful Troll

Got it remade, thanks mods. [quote]Nice Troll Is Nice[/quote] You must always be nice, never flaming anyone on the Forums about rank, member title, or spelling. It all means nothing. If you are a mean troll, you will be banned. [quote]Funny Troll Is Funny[/quote] You can be funny, but you must do it in a manner that hurts no one and when I say no one, I mean anybody at all. No "Playing for fun is for noobs" threads of "How could you not have a 50" threads, these are all bad and will get you banned automatically. You must talk about topics that are unique, funny, and broad, nothing is pin-pointed too much at anything specific. If you follow this, you'll get lots of replies and no bans! [quote]Informative Troll Is Informative[/quote] Even though you are trolling, that doesn't mean you should help out your fellow Bungie members with whatever problems they have, or contribute to a topic. By contributing to topics intelligently people start to like you, and think of you as not just a funny person, but a nice, and helpful person also. Moderators will respect you for bringing a hint of fun to the community, while still being able to contribute, and not just take up space in the Forums. [quote]Educated Troll Is Educated[/quote] Before ever posting a topic in any Forum, you must read the Forum rules. Read them thouroughly, so that you can make sure to remember "Oh, this isn't allowed, better delete that." If you do so, you will not be banned, but instead praised, for good spelling, keeping it clean, and helping out your fellow members of Bungie.net. Links to Forum Rules.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CHRISLY0NZ UK I did this a while ago... It was in the ODST Forum...the thread was about how I find Grunts "REALLY HARD TO KILL" and that they should make them weaker for Halo 3: ODST... I didn't flame anyone, followed all the rules in this thread and still got banned.[/quote] I remember that! But sadly I can't be a troll, I'm to nice and helpful. ='(

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Inb4Lock [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Delta 15t Posting in epic thread! Seriously though, a little humor in good taste can be a good thing. I, for one, do not take anything personally here on the B.net. That eliminates a lot of trouble right there. I find that if I am respectful of other members, the same is given. [/quote]Still though. I don't like when people mention my name in bad threads. I don't know why... It makes me feel bad ):.[/quote] I admit it irks me also. Well it did in the past. I just don't put myself in that position any more. One thing that I most definitely follow is what Achronos has said in the past. "Replying to a troll or spammer is just as bad as the troll/ spammer himself." Of course he is talking about someone who is breaking the rules. Where as you are not, I think.

  • [quote]Inb4Lock's troll is not a troll[/quote] If your kind of troll is educated, and follows the forum rules, they wouldn't be trolling at all, now would they? I mean, considering the rules say that trolling is prohibited.

But this thread is backwards anyway.

  • Sounds more like the characteristics of a valued member than a troll. Is this like one of those after school programs like D.A.R.E? Cuz Mcgruff the crime dog was awesome. [Edited on 10.19.2009 8:54 AM PDT]
