    Obligatory.

    This should be required viewing for every new member.

    And a quiz afterwards, to see if they actually watched it.

    Damn XDA has gotten huge since android took off, I remember when it was just a forum for regular old HTC phones trying to hack the G1. I remember Jesusfreke was the one who did all the roms and stericson was the one who did all the themes and we didn't even have android 1.0 we had rc 28. Also back then XDA only did HTC phones, I believe the original droid was the first non htc phone to end up on there. [/nostalgia]

    Anyways yes we need one, we need to mention stickys and the search function and the fact that we don't host roms anymore

    It's an old word referring to one born out of wedlock.

    No swearing is a pretty loose guideline seeing as pretty much every one except shit and fuck have legitimate uses.

    hey what is this? I found an EOF thread with a good first post?! man, these are rare these days. and I agree with you, these rules have to be applied to every forum, or at least the temp.

    I agree that some of it is over the top (especially the bits about asking questions, since new devices and updates are released constantly and it's not hard to be the first person to hit a specific bug), but I'm considering making an intro video for GBAtemp like this... depending on how hard it is.

    Behind you.
    The audio part shouldn't be very hard, but the problem would be the video editing (as in the first post video).

    Yeah I googled around and it looks like any software that could let me do motion tweens like that (specifically camera panning for cleanliness) is stuff I'm unfamiliar with, so if I do make something it won't be kinetic typography.

    Why copy XDA? Just create something original.
