Coulter's Smithing forums

This is where any newbies should begin. See various FAQs and rules, learn to search, find out how to join the forums so you can post yourself.
Forum rules
The rules should go without saying, but here they are:
Use your real name, and if you use an avatar, make it a picture of you. This is for real people only.
Don't cuss -- I don't mind, but others may.
Don't get personal and call names.
Stay on-topic -- start a new thread for a new topic. Try to get it in the right category. If you have a question about what that might be, ask me.
Be informative and provide useful information. Please search to see if your question is already answered before asking again.
Keep speculations and general gassing to the forums/threads meant for them.
Don't ask a question, then start a fight over the answer. Google/Wiki things first if you can manage.
Don't anger me -- if you do, you're toast here.
Don't put copyrighted material up here and get me in trouble.

  • Announce yourself
    Post here once you join, and tell us about yourself so we have a clue who we are talking to.
    Keep threads short here -- once you have something to say, there's a topic here somplace where it will fit -- and if not, let me know and I will make subforums as necessary. We want all of hard science and tech up here, and if something doesn't fit -- that's my fault and I will fix that for you. See the rules and tips in the parent forum, please.

    For the newbs to ask questions. Note there really isn't a question/answer section other than this. The forums in general are supposed to be practical knowledge shared by experts, not custom free tutoring for all - we simply can't do that - there aren't enough of us. So, new guys can post here and if you're good, our moderators will "promote you" to being able to post on the rest of the site. It you're a bot, totally inactive joiner, or just a luser - this is where we find that out too and say bye.
