Welcome to DemiDec Talk! I'm Zzzptm, the top administrator here. In real life, my name is Dean Webb and I work with Daniel Berdichevsky (aka DemiDec Dan or DDD) on a number of projects.

This is one of those projects.

DemiDec Talk is for discussion of Academic Decathlon and DemiDec's Scholar's Cup competitions. Most areas of the forum are for serious discussions of various topics and we ask that members of the board respect those discussions and not treat them lightly. Please keep posts in those threads on-topic and worth reading. One-word responses, silliness, and other forms of distraction will not be looked upon kindly. While we can't catch every instance of getting off-topic, we can warn members for whom this is a problem.

There is an off-topic area: Silly Discussions. Feel free to get silly there, make one-word responses, and engage in other forms of distraction.

In ALL areas of the board, we ask that you post in a manner respectful of other members. This means we ask that you not make personal attacks on other members or post forbidden material. Forbidden material includes, but is not limited to, sexually explicit material, drug/alcohol abuse references, insulting language, and usage of profanity.

Attempts to evade the restrictions on forbidden material are not cute. Posting half of a profane word in such a way that the word can be identified in full from the context is the same as posting the word, for example. Some skirting of the restrictions may be tolerated, but do not be surprised if a post you made that was close to the edge was removed from public view. Stay well within the bounds of the rules and you should have no trouble.

This board is closely affiliated with DemiDec, and the admins and moderators of this board will take steps to make sure the public image of DemiDec is not injured by those who may choose to abuse the free services provided by DemiDec in the form of this message board. DemiDec and its associated trustees reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time if it is deemed to be in the best interests of DemiDec and/or this online community.

Keep these simple rules in mind, play nice, and you will have a wonderful time here!
