Article IV. Posting Guidelines:

SCF offers a wide range of forums. Always locate the proper forum before posting. If you are unsure, contact a member of the staff to assist you.
Section 4.01 Thread Hijacking/Trolling:

Hijacking a thread is considered taking over a thread that you did not originally create and posting something that has nothing to do with its actual subject matter. Examples are trying to sell or trade cards in a thread where the original thread starter is doing the same or jumping in a thread to elicit information about an item that was not mentioned by the thread starter. To remedy this, simply create a new thread. Trolling is considered making comments in someone’s thread in provocation to create emotional distress towards other people or picking a fight.

Posting on a thread in the effort to help another members thread stay at or near the top of a forum, otherwise known as
