    I didn't find anything by searching, but am I wrong in remembering a rule saying 'no posting pre-ngd' type threads? It seems like a lot of people have been posting threads that essentially say 'I just ordered this! Here's specs and no pictures because it isn't built yet and I won't get it for 3 months!'

    I don't know about anyone else, but I find these threads to be unnecessary.

    Perhaps there should be a stickied 'I just ordered...' thread where people can make posts months ahead of receiving their newly-ordered instruments?

    There's something like that in off topic, but it's not limited to instruments. I don't remember the name off hand

    FTFY.

    The old rules page seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth, but it was DEFINITELY a rule.

    I hate it when people do that, it's such a tease.

    For finished instruments it's not allowed, for build threads it is, with the main idea being that build threads will eventually have progress photos.

    Those for completed instruments are still closed. If you don't have time to take a quick snapshot, you don't have time to post and rep whore.

    If anyone is looking for the rules, there's a link in my signature. :yesway: (Rule 8)
