Do not double-post (post twice in a row in the same topic) if you aren't the topic creator making an thread in multible posts. Instead, please edit your posts with updated content.

If you accidentally post in the wrong section, simply leave a note in the original post stating you want the thread to be moved to a different section/private message a moderator to have it moved.
5. Grave digging (or "Necrobumping") Grave digging is posting on a thread that has been inactive for an extended period of time, usually in response to what one inadvertently believes to be an ongoing discussion.
