Many of us that frequent the Cyburbia forums also frequent other online forums. One thing that I have noticed as a large difference between Cyburbia and others are the tight rules.
I was struck by this fact today as I read in another forum (music related) a thread dedicated to those who have changed their usernames, some of them more than once. Within this forum and others, I have also noticed a large amount of photos in the signature, some of them animated; rampant low-content posts (including many with just a link to a relevant article or photo); and many "increase your post count" type-threads where the user is encouraged to post a number or word designed to raise the count under their user name.
When I first started posting here, some of these rules were frustrating and I have read many who have felt that such rules were created in the name of "over-moderation" by a zealous admin staff. Well, as I get more experience in cyberspace, I realized that the clean posting environment (visually and verbally)and professionalism exhibited by the Cyburbia staff make this a great place to call "home."
Plus, gaining "Clube" status here is something that folks work very hard to get.
